Arsenal re-sign defender Viktoria Schnaderbeck

Women’s Super League club Arsenal have re-signed Viktoria Schnaderbeck.

Schnaderbeck signed for the Gunners in 2018 from German side Bayern Munich and she is also the captain of the Austrian national team.

The length of the deal has not been disclosed.

Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro has said he is ‘ecstatic’ to keep the defender.

"I’m really delighted to have Viki stay with us. 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.”

And she added: “I’m truly very happy to finally make it official. 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!”
