Arsenal's new manager!
Arsenal have announced Unai Emery as their new manager. The 46 year old spaniard has come to the premier league after just winning the treble with the top team in the Ligue 1 Paris St-Gemrain.
This new addition to the club may come as a shock to most fans who follow the premier league as former Arsenal player Mikel Arteta was said to be taking job. Mikel had just won the English Premier League as an assistant coach for Manchester City so it seemed like a real possibility, instead the role has gone Emery who has also won successive Europa League titles with Spanish team Sevilla which something Arsene Wenger struggled to do after 22 years at the club.
He has been praised and backed by other successful Premier league managers such as former Leicester City and Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri and current Premier League holder Pep Guardiola.
Emery will be presented at a press conference later on today. He said prior to today “I am thrilled to be joining one of the great clubs in the game,” Emery said. ”Arsenal is known and loved throughout the world for its style of play, its commitment to young players, the fantastic stadium, the way the club is run. I’m very excited to be given the 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.”
