Arsenal Women: Stina Blackstenius

Arsenal Women new signing Stina Blackstenius believes she is ready for a new challenge after signing in the January transfer window. Blackstenius was one of the most sought-after transfer targets and is now fully focused on becoming a better player. She joins as a free agent after her contract at Hacken expired. She follows in the footsteps of her countrywomen Magdalena Eriksson and Hanna Bennison who play at Chelsea and Everton respectively.

“I just went for it. I get a really good impression from Arsenal as a club and everything just felt good when I took the decision,” Arsenal Women new signing Stina Blackstenius said. “The WSL is one of the most attractive leagues right now because it is a really competitive league to be in. I was out playing in France a couple of years ago [Blackstenius spent two seasons at Montpelier before returning to Sweden] but then I felt maybe I wasn’t ready to take that step.”

“I have heard so much good stuff about the league and the teams here in England, I felt like I didn’t need any!” she added. “I know Frida Maanum from when we played in Linkopings. She can speak Swedish so I was talking to her a bit on my first day. I got good first impressions from everyone. There are a lot of good girls in the group and I feel well taken care of. He knows that I want to fight for trophies and that I want to keep winning stuff. And I know that he’s a coach who wants the same.”
