We’re delighted to confirm that Viktoria Schnaderbeck has signed a new contract, committing her future to Arsenal.
A versatile defender and captain of the Austrian national team, Viki joined us from Bayern Munich in May 2018 and helped us secure the FA Women’s Super League title in her debut season.
The 29-year-old then kicked on in impressive fashion in 2019/20, starting 17 games across all competitions and guiding us to 12 clean sheets.
“I’m really delighted to have Viki stay with us,” said Head Coach, Joe Montemurro. “She’s a really experienced professional who is always willing to work for the team and go that extra mile to help someone out, so she really personifies what we’re trying to achieve. We’re ecstatic to retain her at Arsenal.”
“I’m truly very happy to finally make it official,” said Schnaderbeck after signing. “It just feels so right to stay with this club with the philosophy, with the staff and players, and it’s both the big picture and the small details that feel right to me.
“I still think there is so much more to come from me and now I just can’t wait to be back (at London Colney) and start training, not alone, but with my teammates again!”
