Head coach announces delight after seeing midfielder OFFICIALLY sign up with Arsenal
ARSENAL Head Coach Jonas Eidevall has announced his delight at the news that Kim Little has agreed a new deal at the club.
The midfielder, who first joined the club in 2008 and has made 290 appearances over two spells, scoring 164 goals, and there were rumours that this could be her final season at the club.
But Little – who was awarded an MBE for services to football in the 2023 New Year Honours List, having won six league titles during her time at Arsenal, has now decided to extend her stay at the Arsenal.
And after seeing his Captain agree the new deal at the club – Eidevall announced his delight he said
“Kim is a world-class player and an exemplary professional. Her contribution here over many years has been outstanding and we are so pleased that she will continue to represent Arsenal for years to come.
“On and off the pitch, Kim is such an important part of what we are trying to achieve here at Arsenal Football Club so we are all delighted with this news.”
Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said:
“Few people are so universally respected in the way that Kim is in the world of football. She is a wonderful player and an outstanding person and we are so delighted to confirm that Kim will be staying at ARSENAL.
“She has been one of the best players in the world for over a decade and her influence as captain of this football club is immense. We look forward to seeing her back on the pitch very soon.”
The club captain sits seventh in Arsenal’s all-time appearances charts and has played more times for the club than any other member of our current squad, so she will be looking to add to that when she is back fit and healthy.
