We’re delighted to announce that Arsenal Women manager Joe Montemurro has signed a new long-term contract with the club.
Since Joe took over as manager in November last year, we have won the Continental Tyres Cup, reached the final of the Women’s FA Cup and won 21 out of 27 matches under his guidance.
We are currently on a six-game winning streak since the start of the 2018/19 campaign and top the FA Women’s Super League, scoring an impressive 33 goals in just six games across all competitions this season.
Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi said: “Joe has an outstanding track record as a manager and has made a huge impact since joining us last November. We’re delighted that Joe has signed a new long-term contract with us and look forward to working with him to take the team to future success.”
Montemurro said: "I feel honoured to have signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal. We’ve been working hard this year to reinvigorate the historic and special qualities of this team, and to implement an attractive style of football. We’re pleased that recent early season results have so far reflected the hard work.
“I’m working with some of the greatest female footballers in the world and with a top-class support staff. We have incredible support from the wider Arsenal Football Club and I’m really excited to continue my role. I feel at home here - we are one big family.”
