New Arsenal Ladies signing Asisat Oshoala is hoping she can hit the ground running at her new club after completing a dream move from Liverpool Ladies to London on Friday.
Arsenal Ladies are billed to kick off their season against Birmingham Ladies in the Women’s FA Cup on Sunday, and Oshoala is hoping to make an instant impact.
“I can’t wait for the start of the season to happen,” she told arsenal.com. “I’m really eager for that – I just want to show what we have to the fans.
“When I came here last week, I had a very long conversation with Pedro [Martinez Losa] and he told me the goals of the club, what the club has to offer and what the club is looking to do in the future. I think I’m comfortable and happy with the dream of the club.
“He was talking about the organisation and professionalism of the team. It is getting better each year. The coming years are going to be far better.”
Already, Oshoala is aware that she would be enjoying more followership back home in Nigeria with her Arsenal move and she hopes not to disappoint her fans.
“Everyone is happy because it is a very popular club in my country. Having their own player playing for the club is a great thing. Everyone was happy about it – not just my family but football fans around Nigeria.” She stated.
