Leah Williamson is focused on going all the way to the top.
The England international has made 179 appearances for the club to date, scoring 13 goals and becoming a true fan favourite - but she believes there’s still plenty more to come.
“Before the injury, I felt like I was playing some of the best football that I’ve ever played - especially in an Arsenal shirt,” Williamson told Arsenal Media. “I wanted to be a reliable person and I wanted to be a reliable team-mate and footballer, and I wanted the girls to look at me and know what they’re going to get and that it will be good enough
“I think I was hitting those sort of levels, but I’m never satisfied and there’s definitely some things that I was missing, which is why I’m so excited to get back playing against, just to see if I can tick those boxes. I’m as intrigued as anybody else is to see how high I can go. I made a good start at the start of the season, but there’s definitely more to come.
“I want to take this club back to the top. It’s a big task and everybody wants that in women’s football, it’s the goal for a lot of teams and it’s probably achievable for a lot of teams as well, but this club deserves to win silverware and like I say, I walk in the shadows of those that came before me and how successful they were and so effortlessly it seems, so now it’s time to relight the fire I suppose and hopefully I can help the club achieve some of that stuff while I’m still here.”
