That’s a whole paragraph talking about her individual achievements! That’s how amazing she has been in the women’s game!
“I think the most beautiful thing about the game is building something with a team and with people around you that you really want to be around,” said Vivianne.
“I do feel like I have got that at Arsenal. I feel like for me, winning titles with Arsenal will mean a lot more to me than winning them with another club at the moment. And that’s what I obviously hope to achieve with Arsenal.”
Congratulations to our 25-year-old star on getting deservedly rewarded for her efforts for the red half of London. Hoping for many more successful years…
