Arsenal’s Viktoria Schnaderbeck says she will take her time on signing a new contract with the club.
The Austrian’s deal expires in North London at the end of the season and she told the Austrian Football association: “I’m in a good conversation with the club, but I want to take my time with the decision. But there is a trend, and it is for Arsenal.
“I feel totally comfortable here and know that the club is also satisfied with me.”
The Austrian captain also heaped praise on club and international team-mate Manuela Zinsberger, who has established herself as Arsenal’s number one, adding: “At the beginning the division was 50-50, but in the end Manu was ahead.
“For her, the start here was absolutely successful, she feels very comfortable. I’ve known her for a very long time and I can tell how well the change has done her both sporting-wise and personally.”
