Jonas Eidevall cannot wait to get started in north London.
The Swede was unveiled as the new head coach of our women's team on Monday and is looking forward to building on the positive steps forward that we made last season.
"I’m absolutely delighted over this opportunity coming into such a big club at such an exciting time," Eidevall told Arsenal Media. "I think we have an amazing season ahead of us and so much is going on, both in the club and also in the women’s game on an international basis, so I’m absolutely delighted and looking forward to this journey.
"The ambitions that the club has, they want to be a world-leading team inside women’s football and that’s obviously what attracts to me, that they want to win both the Women’s Champions League and the title in England.
"Of course, it’s also about the way we want to achieve success and that the club has a clear philosophy and a way of playing and we want to achieve success through that. That really excites me, also that it’s a club with a rich history.
"It’s the most successful women’s team in England and obviously through the growth now of the women’s game, a lot of different teams are also coming up, but I can tell from listening in to the people at the club that the club right now are making major investments into the women’s team.
"It’s always about understand the club’s ambition. Where are they are now and where do they want to be in the future? Then I want to see myself into that picture and see whether I can be the right person leading this team and getting it where the club wants it to be, but the vision of the club is the most important thing and the vision that it has is clear and ambitious."
