It came after Arsenal defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 4-0 with just one last matchday to go.

They avoided a final day showdown against Manchester City, who were also in the hunt for the title. 

"I’m very happy and very proud of everyone who’s been involved. It’s been a joint-achievement from everyone. I’m just so proud of everyone. ," Montemurro told

"To coach an Arsenal team to a championship as an Arsenal fan is mind-boggling.

"It’s something I’d never have thought about in growing up and becoming a coach. I’m very proud and very honoured to be here as an Arsenal coach."

Vivianne Miedema opened the scoring which set the tone for the rest of the afternoon before Katie McCabe doubled Arsenal's advantage on the half-hour mark. 

Following the break, Arsenal continued to play our free-flowing football, and this brought about two goals in quick succession from Beth Mead and Danielle van de Donk.

Montemurro joined Arsenal in November 2017 and went on to win the Continental Tyres Cup and reach the final of the Women’s FA Cup.

He signed a new long-term contract in October last year.

After winning the FAWSL, Montemurro now has eyes on something much bigger.

"The first thing I thought was, ‘How can we make this better now? How can we improve on this?’ The Champions League is the big one and we want to be up there in the upper echelons of European football," he said.

"We need to be at the best against the best, winning leagues every year. We need to improve because women’s football is improving."
