Arsenal Women boss Jonas Eidevall believes his side is good enough to compete on all fronts this season. He did admit it was tough to keep the focus on the different competitions. The Gunners have started their Women Super League with a bang and a perfect record including a 4-0 win over West Ham this weekend. They lead defending champions Chelsea by three points. Their next assignment is a trip to Denmark to take on Koge in the Champions League.
“I think so, that’s the belief I have in the squad,” Arsenal Women boss Jonas Eidevall said. “So far in the season, we have shown that we are able to win with a lot of different players on the pitch which has been a strength as well. It is one game at a time but I have a big belief in this squad and I feel we can beat any opponent we are playing, so that is a nice feeling to have to go into the games.”
“I don’t think it is easy because obviously, that is when it requires a lot from both the coaching staff and players that we cannot get complacent and that we need to prepare for every game we play,” he added. “That is the difference between just saying something and doing something. Everyone will say ‘it is one game at a time and we need to be focused for every opponent’ so that is the easy thing to say but the hard thing to do. The turnarounds are quick between the games so it requires a lot of hours and in that case, it starts with us as a staff group to do that work and if we fail with our preparation then we give the signal to the players it’s not important.”
