Arsenal unveil Unai Emery as new manager

How Unai Emery has performed against Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola

Arsenal announced on Wednesday that Unai Emery is their new head coach, succeeding Arsene Wenger at the Premier League giants. Arsene Wenger's successor appeared alongside chief executive Ivan Gazidis at a news conference at the Emirates to lay out his plans for how to turn the Gunners back into title contenders.

Emery clearly isn't afraid to tackle a challenge even when it comes to language.

Emery was handed the two most-expensive signings on the planet in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe and although they dazzled domestically, they were knocked out by Real Madrid in the UCL this season after their dramatic collapse to Barcelona in 2016/17. That meant he wasn't able to express most of his ideas as clearly as he might have wished but he still managed to say most of the right things. One of the complaints from supporters was the lack of quality in the current squad.

'If he made a decision to stay for 10 more years, no one would have been against (it)'.

Emery very much looked the part in a dark gray suit, white shirt and red tie: an outfit similar to what Wenger often wore during games.

"Also, through cultural demands - pushing players and demanding more from them". "We play against all the teams with this personality, with I think the history here is one".

"These two things are, for me, very important - protagonists with possession of the ball and pressing when you don't have the ball".

Speaking today the new manager said: 'We will create a new present and a new future for Arsenal.I want to say thank you Arsene Wenger for your legacy.

"I hope he will bring new tactical ideas and spirit to Arsenal", the Armenia worldwide told Vivaro News, "I hope he will succeed".

Although the decision was met with a mixed reception from Arsenal fans, the figures behind the decision are clearly certain the Spaniard is the man to take the North London club forwards.

Unai Emery became Arsenal's new manager after beating two other candidates to the job, according to chief executive Ivan Gazidis. By battling for every title. And I want that to continue.

'Our objective is to be among the best teams in Europe, to win titles and to be in the elite of European teams.

"All the way going through the process, Raul and I and Sven spoke to each other as little as possible because we didn't want to pollute each other's viewpoints from the discussions we had had", Gazidis told United Kingdom newspapers. "I know my ambition and my passion and to know how I want to grow up with Arsenal".

Emery will be expected to deliver better results on the pitch than Wenger did in recent years but he'll struggle to deliver better quotes.

Despite this, the Arsenal hierarchy is confident that Emery's arrival can put an end to the discontent that has crept into the Emirates, both on and off the field.
