Louise Quinn is having a week to remember.
Just three days after lifting the Women’s Super League trophy at Meadow Park, the Republic of Ireland international signed a new deal to extend her stay in north London.
Quinn has been a key figure in our title-winning side, with only Katie McCabe and Vivianne Miedema featuring more this season, and the defender cannot wait to test herself in the Champions League next term.
“It’s absolutely huge for me,” she told Arsenal Player. “Definitely number one is that you’re looking for that league title and as long as I can keep putting those performances in on the pitch, and then to get a contract after is brilliant.
“Being in the Champions League is massive for the club and it’s putting us back where we belong, where the history of the club is so strong. The fact that we can get back there means we will definitely be able to compete strongly as well.
“It’s just going to be a great experience for us and we want to compete to do well and win games in that as well. Just overall for the club, it’s brilliant.
“It’s just so hard to describe at the moment. I think we’ve all just clicked and have been performing at the right time together. I think the group that Joe has put together has mixed brilliantly on and off the pitch.
“I think that’s just as important sometimes. If you look at the performances we’ve put in this season, it’s been so tight-knit and we’ve had to ask so much of each and every player as well. We all respect each other for the hard work and effort we’ve put in, and it’s shown by winning the league.”
