Austrian national team captain Viktoria Schnaderbeck has signed a new contract with Arsenal Women.

The 29-year-old versatile defender started 17 games across all competitions in 2019-20, helping to keep a dozen clean sheets.

“I’m really delighted to have Viki stay with us,” Head Coach, Joe Montemurro told “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!”
