Alessia Russo opens up about the tough transition to new club Arsenal

Alessia Russo made a surprising move to Arsenal shortly before heading to Australia to participate in the Women’s World Cup with the England national team.

The transfer generated significant attention as she switched from Manchester United to Arsenal, a rival in the Women’s Super League, without a transfer fee.

She joined Arsenal’s preseason preparations just one week after competing in the World Cup final between England and Spain, providing her with limited time to recover from the emotional experience of coming close to winning the tournament.

“Joining a new club is hard but I am making new friends and new connections on the pitch” she told The Standard. “When you join a new team — you have got to figure out what each other’s traits and strengths are and how you can make them better and how they make you better. Yes, it takes a little bit of time but you feel it is coming more and more together.”

“You’ve seen so far in the league that you can’t see anyone as an underdog — the standard has just gone up another level. The girls have been great and so has everyone around the club.”

Alessia Russo has scored three goals in six games across various competitions. Despite her contributions, Arsenal hasn’t had the strongest start to the season, with only two wins in their first four games. As a result, they currently occupy seventh place in the league standings.
