Miedema claimed her form of late is down to her relaxed mentality, saying she refuses to wilt under the pressures of professional football.
“I think that’s just how I am,” said Miedema. “I always think I’m quite relaxed on the ball. I want the ball quite a lot, I am confident as well so I don’t know if that makes me look really relaxed on the ball. Whatever it is, it’s just my way of playing and I don’t think that’s going to change.”
For a striker with such a clinical record, Miedema’s attitude towards her own aims are refreshingly selfless, and the Netherlands international explained that her main ambitions are – and will always be – winning trophies with Arsenal.
“For me the main goal in a year is always to get trophies with the team.”
“If I need to put on paper what my goals are for this season it will always be winning the league with Arsenal or winning the cup with Arsenal. If trophies and individual awards come that’s absolutely fine but I don’t think it ever has to be the main focus.”
