We got our reward - Vic

We got our reward - Vic - 1 May 2007 - Women's Football NewsArsenal manager Vic Akers lavished praise on his team after they captured the UEFA Women's Cup with a 1-0 aggregate win over Umea IK.
"It's a great moment," he said, "but you don't get anything without putting the effort in and that's what we have done. We got our reward but it got a bit tense and the players had to defend much harder as they made it difficult for us. But the result is ours and they can't take it away from us.
"It's a personal landmark for me and what a fantastic year our 20th year has been. We already have the League Cup and Premier League in the trophy cabinet and now we have the biggest trophy of them all, with the F.A.Cup Final to come. We have three games to go if we are to be unbeaten all season and that would be another fantastic achievement.
"We kept two clean sheets against their forward line and that is a real plus. We've been playing midfielders in defence and they have been outstanding, and Mary Phillip has had to play left back and not once has she complained. Emma Byrne made good saves in both games and her handling today was first class."
The final few minutes were marked by the long awaited return of Faye White from injury. "It's nice for Faye to get her feet on the pitch at the end," admitted Vic. "She has been a terrific servant to the club for eight years and it is great to have her back."
"We could have won both games," said Umea coach Andree Jeglertz. "We didn't score our goals, and they scored one and won because of that. We were the better team over the two games and deserved better, but maybe we didn't deserve the luck.
"It's hard to speak of positives when you have just lost a final but I think we really tried for the win. Arsenal have a good defence, their goalkeeper was good today, and they are a very good team - the best in Europe, in fact."
"It's a fantastic day," smiled Arsenal defender Mary Phillip. "A great achievement for us.
"We worked hard as a team last week to get the 1-0 win and a draw did us today, so we'll take it!
"There's not a word to describe how I feel, just ecstatic right now."
