“The players we’ve got and all the staff behind the scenes. I’m really happy to commit my future.”
Since her arrival at Meadow Park in 2015 from Irish side Shelbourne FC, McCabe has helped the Gunners win the FA Cup, the League Cup and Women’s Super League.
And she’ll have the chance to help them add the Champions League to their cabinet after her decisive goal in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Everton last weekend helped them secure qualification to Europe.
She has been a key player in Joe Montemurro’s team this season, scoring four goals and providing 12 assists in just 24 matches.
One of her stand-out moments in this campaign was when she scored a stunning free-kick in Arsenal’s 6-1 rout against rivals Tottenham.
Montemurro also expressed his delight at McCabe’s decisison to stay at the club and said she has been one of the highlights of his managerial career.
Since she returned from her half-season loan with Glasgow City in 2017, Montemurro believes she has developed into a “world class” player.
He said: “Katie McCabe is one of the highlights of the last three or four years here.
“It’s been a project which has been an exciting one. She’s been thrown every challenge from the day that we brought her back from her loan.
“And I think she’s just developed into a world-class left-sided player. All credit to her, she personifies exactly what we want from our squad.”
But, unfortunately the pair’s working relationship is coming to an end as Montemurro will be leaving the Gunners hot-seat at the end of this season.
He announced his shock exit at the end of March after spending three years at the helm.
At the time of the news, Montemurro revealed that his decision to leave had been the hardest of his professional career so far.
