Having worked with Joe Montemurro during her time with Melbourne City, Kim Little knows what our new manager can bring to the club.
The Australian coach led Melbourne to two league titles in back-to-back seasons, including an unbeaten campaign in 2015/16, which Little was a part of.
“I worked with him for four months and I played out in Melbourne in the W League there, and I really enjoyed working with him.” Little told Arsenal.com. “He likes to coach and play the way that I enjoy playing, which is playing good football with a purpose with a kind of relaxed atmosphere around the team.
“I played under him for quite a short period of time, but we had a great team there and we played possession based football, playing through the thirds with a purpose trying to break teams down as quickly and effectively as possible.
“Everybody doesn’t know too much about Joe, because he has obviously been coaching in Melbourne, but we’re all looking forward to him coming in, putting his stamp on the team and taking us forward in terms of performance.”
