Arsenal Women’s Austrian international goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 25-year-old, who  has made 31 appearances since joining from Bayern Munich in May 2019, has kept a dozen 12 clean sheets for the Gunners and also saved three penalties.

“It’s just unbelievable. I’m happy.” She told www.arsenal.com after putting pen to paper. “We have so much quality in the team and I think also the staff around us makes it unbelievable. I’m just happy to extend my contract.”

“It’s great to have Manu” said Head Coach Joe Montemurro. “We brought her in as a young goalkeeper with a lot of international experience, and obviously she’d played at the top level with Bayern. To be able to work with her and keep her development going, and be part of what we’re trying to build, is really exciting. She’s a special girl for the group, too.”

“She’s a modern goalkeeper who’s very, very good with her feet. She suits her style from a football perspective but it’s the way she is, her attitude, her behaviour, just her great nature. It’s really important to the group and we love having her around.”
