Emma Mitchell may have grown up in Glasgow, but her heart is in north London.
The Scotland defender signed a new contract with us on Wednesday, and says there is nowhere she would rather be.
“I’m just buzzing,” she told Arsenal Player. “It’s just an honour and a privilege to be at this club for such a long time, and renew my contract yet again. I’m really proud.
“I think a massive influence on it has probably been Joe coming in with his philosophy, the way he wants to play. I like the values he’s brought to the club and the way that we’ve been able to kick on so quickly in such a short amount of time. It’s positive and encouraging, and there’s no place I’d rather be.
“I’ve been here since I was 20 and now I’ve just kicked on 25. That’s literally like my mid-twenties, so I probably have done a lot of my learning here.
“I’m just Mitch and I just crack on with everything. Obviously then there’s that responsibility that comes with being at the club for a while. When it gets down to the nitty gritty, I do have to take responsibility.”
