Gunners secure Swiss defender Maritz

ARSENAL have confirmed the signing of experienced Swiss International defender, Noelle Maritz, from VfL Wolfsburg.

Having picked up a number of honours during her career, the 24-year old departed the German outfit off the back of winning her fifth Frauen Bundesliga and sixth DFB Pokal. She also has a UEFA Women’s Champions League winners medal, picked up with Wolfsburg back in 2014.

Capped 74 times by Switzerland, Maritz expressed her delight at joining the North Londoners: “I’m really excited and so happy that I can play for such a huge club,” she enthused.

“I honestly can’t wait to just get started now and meet all of my new teammates. This is a whole new challenge for me and I feel like it’s a great step in my career and development.”

Meanwhile, Gunners Head Coach, Joe Montemurro, said: “We’re ecstatic to have a player of Noelle’s calibre at the club.

“She’s been on our radar for the last six months because she’s very proactive going forward, but again, she’s another player that’s played in Champions League finals and big games. She really suits the kind of player that we want at this club.”
