The former W-League Championship winning coach took over as manager at Arsenal in November 2017 and went on to win the Continental Tyres Cup and reach the final of the Women’s FA Cup.

So Montemurro didn’t hesitate in signing a new contract on Wednesday.

“I’m really humbled and privileged,” Montemurro told Arsenal Player.

“For the club to believe that I’m the person to take the team to the next level is a great honour and you’re going to have to put up with me for a little bit longer, unfortunately!
“I think that we’ve just started a really exciting journey with the women’s team. We’ve started to bring back a little bit of the DNA that I keep on talking about.
“I always thought this team was underachieving. I always thought this team was capable of doing some great things in its current form. When I inherited the team, obviously we put some things in place and it was great to see that come into fruition probably a little bit earlier than we expected to be honest," he said.

Arsenal are currently on an unbeaten start to the 2018/19 season and sit on top of the FA Women’s Super League.

They've scored 33 goals in just six games across all competitions this season. 

"We’ve been working hard this year to reinvigorate the historic and special qualities of this team, and to implement an attractive style of football. We’re pleased that recent early season results have so far reflected the hard work," Montemurro told .
“I’m working with some of the greatest female footballers in the world and with a top-class support staff. We have incredible support from the wider Arsenal Football Club and I’m really excited to continue my role. I feel at home here - we are one big family,” he said.
