Montemurro What we need to reach the next level

Everything is going right for Joe Montemurro at the moment.

The Arsenal Women manager has guided his side to an unbeaten start this season, and was rewarded for his efforts with a new long-term contract on Wednesday.
 
But how much more is there to come from this group of players?
 
“I think a lot more,” Montemurro told Arsenal Player. “To be really at that next level and competing in a more comfortable way with the top teams in England, but also in Europe.
 
“That’s going into games knowing that we’ve actually got a great opportunity to really beat teams. To have that mentality every day and in every game is the next level. With the journey we’re on at the moment and what we’ve achieved so far, I think we can achieve some great heights.
 
“Will there be some little pitfalls? Absolutely, but you need those to keep you in check and on the right track every once in a while.
 
“I’m just really keen to do some fantastic work, some innovative work, and take it to the next step. To be given the opportunity to do that and the time to do that now is really exciting.”
