Losa happy with Nobbs' new contract

Pedro Martinez Losa, Arsenal's manager, also commented on Nobbs' extension, citing that she was "a symbol of Arsenal's future".

"Jordan is a very important player for us and one of our key offensive players." Losa stated on the club's official website.

The boss believes that Nobbs "has a lot to learn", but possesses "incredible potential". Losa thinks that their start is showing "more than enough" to suggest she can be the club's future.

He added, "We are very happy - if she is happy, we are happy. That is the most important thing."

Development is key

Losa also praised Jordan Nobbs' development since signing for Arsenal, mentioning Kelly Smith and Kim Little as her mentors. "She learned from players like Kelly Smith and Kim Little at a time when they were playing Champions League," Losa said. The manager believes Nobbs gained "a lot from the competitiveness", as well as "playing at the top level with top players in the world".

He concluded by speaking about Nobbs and her renewed commitment to the club, "We can receive big rewards in the future and especially players like Jordan Nobbs who can show us those values."

Arsenal certainly seem to be looking forward to Nobbs' continued contribution in the 2016 season as they embark on challenging for more titles.
