But Scott insists she did not move for financial reasons, previously telling The Guardian: “People assume I went for the money but it wasn’t that, it was so I could improve in a way that wasn’t possible here. Now though you can develop your game by staying in England, you don’t have to go to America or Sweden any more.
“I was never motivated by money. I wanted to be an FA Cup finalist, I wanted to walk up the steps at Wembley. I wanted to win the league. I still only ever want to win trophies. No matter what happens to our game, money won’t be a motivation for me.”
What has Alex Scott said about sexism?
Scott has received a huge amount of abuse due to her gender since appearing as a pundit for men’s football games and towards the end of the 2018-19 season, her first campaign as a regular broadcaster, the former Gunner spoke out about the mental effects of some comments on social media comments.
Twitter is there for everyone to see. I think I get it (sexist abuse) every single day now,” Scott said on the BBC.
“I went through a stage over Christmas when it got hard to handle. At the time I was, ‘right, I’m going to come off Twitter and move away from social media’.
“But then I thought that it has been my strong presence on social media that’s allowed me to connect with fans and that by coming off Twitter I was allowing them to win.
“So that’s when I put out a tweet saying, ‘actually, I’m not going anywhere and I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing’.
