Arsenal: Jonas Eidevall says playing at Emirates Stadium can grow women’s game


Arsenal: Jonas Eidevall

Arsenal Women boss Jonas Eidevall believes that playing at the Emirates stadium can help her side move in the right direction in preparation for their Champions League clash against Wolfsburg. The Arsenal side will play another game against fierce rivals Tottenham at the Emirates this week. The Gunners scraped through the first-ever group stage of the competition where they were comprehensively beaten 4-0 and 4-1 by Barcelona.

“I like playing at the Emirates, I think it’s the right way forward for us, I think it’s the way that we can grow the game,” Arsenal boss Jonas Eidevall said. “I think with this winter it has helped our game playing on better grass pitches, Borehamwood has been a little barren. I think it’s going to be a great occasion, first playing here at the Emirates and then going to Wolfsburg and playing in their big stadium.”

“We must take our chances. It’s great that we are in this position in all three competitions that we’re in,” he added. “We also have to understand and recognize that when you’re at a club like Arsenal it’s not enough, we’re in this position because we want to win trophies, that’s what we need to push for. I think what separates the bigger clubs from the smaller clubs is ambition and not being happy to have reached a certain point in the competition but to be ambitious enough to challenge yourself and give everything. We are happy with the opportunities that we have but nothing has been achieved yet, now it’s up to us.”

“We played Chelsea and we saw how high the level was,” Wolfsburg boss Tommy Stroot said. “It’s all about individual quality in pretty much every position and they got some new players in the winter break. We have to be very careful. These are the moments why we do all this – great teams, great atmosphere.”
