Emery is the most sought-after coach in the club football. He was at his epitome when PSG hired him from Sevilla in 2016. He won three consecutive Europa League title with Sevilla before landing a managerial job at PSG. However, he did win trophies at PSG, but he never been able to prove himself as Champions League material for the Parisians.
His inability to manage the egoistic Neymar brought trouble for him at PSG and he was finally replaced. Thomas Tuchell replaced him at PSG and it only left Emery to decide his future soon at a different club. Arsenal came calling for the Spaniard after long-held manager Arsene Wenger said goodbye to his beloved club.
Emery is welcomed to write a new chapter at Arsenal. Club Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis quotes at Arsenal official website, “Unai has an outstanding track record of success throughout his career, has developed some of the best young talents in Europe and plays an exciting, progressive style of football that fits Arsenal perfectly. His hard-working and passionate approach and his sense of values on and off the pitch make him the ideal person to take us forward.”
Gazidis adds, “We conducted a confidential, wide-ranging, and rigorous search involving extensive background references, data and video analysis, and personal meetings with all the candidates we shortlisted. All were interested in the position and we were unanimous in our choice of Unai Emery to drive the next chapter of our history.”
Unai Emery also said, “I am thrilled to join one of the greatest clubs in the game. Arsenal is known and loved throughout the world for its style of play, its commitment to young players, the fantastic stadium, the way club is run. I’m very excited to be given responsibility to start this important new chapter in Arsenal’s history. I have met Stan and Josh Kroenke and it’s clear they have great ambitions for the club and are committed to bringing future success. I’m excited about what we can do together and I look forward to giving everyone who loves Arsenal some special moments and memories.”
