In an extremely difficult season, Unai Emery takes on Arsenal’s technical leadership. First, the Spanish coach, knows very well that his predecessor, Arsene Wenger, leaves behind a large store. A great work, though Arsenal has not managed to star in and out of the border in recent years. Emery, who left Paris Saint-Germain champion France, but not with the best evidence on the European track.
The administration of the Parisians had taken Emery 2 years ago (in the position of the Frenchman, Laurent Blanc) with the hope of giving her more stuff to the UEFA Champions League. Besides, in the summer of 2017, Al Khelaifi had redeemed the Neymar clause with the implausible amount of 222 million euros and everyone was expecting too many things. Of course, the Brazilian faced a serious injury problem and lost a significant part of the season.
The essence, however, is that Paris left the top interlining cup, in the 16th phase that did not go unnoticed. Now Emery will have a big challenge ahead of him. To prove that the 3 consecutive UEFA cups, which he had only conquered with Seville was unfortunate. On the “gunners” who will guide for the next 2 years, he will have the opportunity to succeed. He certainly will not have the great pressure he has in Paris. In Arsenal the climate seems to be closer to Seville. That is, the group is more family-friendly than Paris. And Emery must feel more comfortable. This will make it work more pleasantly.
As he stated on Wednesday, May 23 in his official presentation: “I’ve met Stan and Josh Kroenke (two of the big shareholders), and it’s clear that they have great aspirations for the club, they are committed to bringing important footballers, and I’m excited about what we can do together, and I look forward to giving everyone Arsenal loves some special moments and memories”.
Stan Kroenke, the majority shareholder of the club, described Emery as a “proven winner”. Emery won five domestic divisions in his two PSG seasons – including the Ligue 1 title last season – although his lack of success in the Champions League has cost him his job. He also struggled to impose his will in locker rooms that had many egotisms.
Prior to that, Emery was very impressed with Seville, despite the fact that he had to sell the best players of the club on a regular basis. The most impressive, of course, is that it has won the Europa League for three seasons in a row.
“We are pleased to welcome Unay to Arsenal,” said Kroenke. “He is a proven winner, we are sure he is the right person for the job, and he will work to bring the triumphs to the fans, our staff and those interested in Arsenal.”
Knowledge, energy, determination
During the press conference presented by Emery, several things were known: his knowledge. His energy. His determination and love for the game. He wants to continue the great legacy left by Wenger.
The most important points of his speech are:
• She wants Arsenal “to be the best team in the Premier League and all over the world.”
• He stressed the two Ps – occupation and pressure – as a key to his approach and his team will be “protagonist”.
• He will speak separately with all footballers. There’s nothing to say about Jack Wilshere’s future.
• He thanked Arsène Wenger for the “legacy” he left.
Mislintat chose him
Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the “Gunners” may have taken the decision to recruit Emery – as Arteta appeared until recently, but in the days before, the one who had dealt extensively with the subject of the new coach, was the German, Sven Mislintat . It was he who had devoted endless hours of study. He had carefully analyzed all the candidates’ data. He had spoken with them and had done a complete analysis in general. The first one gave the “green light” for Emery , Sven Mislintat.
Indeed, everyone now expects Emery to work with the young Greek central defender, Konstantinos Mavropanos, to become the footballer. Emery was first introduced to the members of the administration on May 18th, with no one, of course, to disclose it. It was kept as secretly agreed!
