Canberra United new recruit Ariane Hingst has settled in well at Canberra United and the 33-year-old believes the nation-s capital is a fitting location to play out the twilight years of her career. Ariane recently gave us five minutes of her time for the first installment of ‘Five Questions with…-, a new weekly feature on the Canberra United website. Enjoy!

How have you enjoyed your time at Canberra United so far?
I-ve absolutely loved it from the first moment I got here. It was a really great welcome from the team, which makes things a lot easier when you join a new team and I-m having a really great time.

What-s been the highlight?
I-m not a fan of naming highlights because that means other things aren-t as good, so I prefer not to name highlights.

Describe what it was like pulling on the Canberra jersey against the Roar and running out in front of a home crowd.
It-s always great to play the first game, but obviously I had a mixture of nerves and was a little bit excited and I just couldn-t wait to finally start the season. I had a good pre-season, the team has been training together for a few weeks and it-s always good to be out in front of a home crowd of almost 1,000 spectators. Unfortunately, our game wasn-t the best and I wish we could have played better soccer. I-m sure we-ll have better games coming, but it was a good start anyway.

What do you hope to achieve at Canberra United?
I-m a winner, so I always want to win every game and get the three points. Unfortunately, we couldn-t get the three [against the Roar], but now I-m just focusing on the next game and taking home the three points there and I just really enjoy winning.

What future goals do you have in football?
I don-t have too many goals anymore because I-m coming close to the end of my career and close to retirement. I-m just still enjoying the game so much. I-m very happy to have been given the opportunity to come to Canberra United because I still have so much passion for the game, but no big plans coming up anymore.
