D'Angelo: "I loved hearing my chant!'

January signing Sabrina D’Angelo made the perfect start to her Arsenal career on Thursday night, keeping a clean sheet in our dominant 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

The Canada international may have only joined us on January 13, but before she’d even kicked a ball or saved her first shot, our supporters were singing her name to the tune of ‘Tequila’.

We spoke to D’Angelo after the game and this is what she had to say:

On keeping a clean sheet and making her debut…

I was very grateful to be out there and obviously getting the win and shout out is amazing. It was a great team effort and there were some really nice goals, so happy days!

On the quality of her teammates…

I mean, Frida’s goals were top class and then Caitlin just sealed it. They were such nice goals, it was awesome.

On how it felt to represent Arsenal for the first time…

Oh gosh, after the warm-up and as I was coming in to get changed I was getting a little bit emotional because they’d announced my name and the fans were cheering. I’m just so happy to be here and to contribute in any way I can. Obviously getting my debut was a good first step, so it was a little emotional.

On the fans chanting her name to the tune of ‘tequila’…

Yes, I heard the little chant going on behind me and I’m not good at holding a poker face, so I was laughing, of course!

On what it means to have a chant before her debut…

I mean, I loved it! The support was amazing and it helps a lot when you have fans like that.

On what she brings to this team…

I think my communication is one of my strong suits and my anchor in the game. I’m happy I’m able to contribute that to the team.
