Malin Gut became our second signing of the summer on Friday when she joined us from Grasshopper Club Zurich.
But what was it about us that convinced her to move? And what does she think of her future team-mates?
“Joe’s philosophy was a very big point for me to make my decision,” said Gut, speaking to Arsenal.com. “Having seen the way they play football, that’s something that I really like and it’s exactly the style of football that I want to play and feel comfortable with. It’s what I enjoy most and just watching the girls play it seems like so much fun, so I’m really looking forward to it.
“When I first heard that Arsenal were interested in me, the first thing I did was look up the squad and just seeing all the players was incredible, there’s so many world-class players. I’m really looking forward to becoming better with them in every training session and that will help me a lot.
“There are so many players like Kim Little and Jordan Nobbs who have been playing for the club for so many years and I’m really looking forward to playing with them.
“As for my style of play, I mostly play in central midfield and I’ve played a few games as a central defender as well, but I usually prefer to play in midfield because I’ve played there throughout almost my whole career. My strengths are that I’m a very calm player, I can keep the game calm and make good passes, that’s what all my game is about.”
