With his first game in charge edging ever closer, Joe Montemurro is relishing the opportunity to work with a squad which includes a World Cup winner, Olympic gold medal winners and European champions.
The Australian will take charge of his first match against Liverpool on Sunday, and is keen to implement a brand of football which Arsenal fans will be accustomed to.
“This opportunity is amazing, from the point of view of being able to work with them, but also I can learn a lot and grow as a coach and person,” Montemurro told Arsenal Player.
“Being around such successful athletes, they are such amazing role models in not only women’s sport, but sport in general and in this group I think it’s an amazing opportunity to do some really amazing things.
“You always want to work in environments where everyone is in it for the same purpose, that there’s a goal to achieve and there’s a way we want to do things. I think you always want to be in situations and groups where you are working together and are happy to do the work to achieve something.
“There’s obviously the goal, to achieve by winning trophies and winning games, but it’s also important to stamp and continue the way we want to play.
“I think the football and the way we want to play, the brand and identity of Arsenal is very important and I want to make sure that comes out, so when you come and watch a game that it’s beautiful to watch, pleasing on the eye, but we also win.”
