Emery confirmed as new Arsenal manager

Unai Emery: 'I want Arsenal to be back among Europe's elite'

Unai Emery: 'I want Arsenal to be back among Europe's elite'

On Wednesday, Emery said in an official statement: "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".

After 22 years of Arsene Wenger sitting in the Arsenal hotseat, the Frenchman has finally passed the torch, with former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery taking up the reigns at the Emirates.

It also wouldn't be shocking to see him try and bring PSG players to Arsenal like Goncalo Guedes, Thiago Motta, Angel Di Maria, Yuri Berchiche, Julian Draxler and so on, all to help him with the move and give him a sense of comfort and familiarity with the players. They will have somebody under whom they can improve their individual and collective games.

"All the titles that will be in the next season and the future [the aim is] to be a candidate and challenge for all the titles", he said.

Arsenal are coming off a disappointing season, having finished sixth in the Premier League - 37 points behind record-breaking champions Manchester City. "Today, I want to work and speak globally for the squad". "There's a special feeling here and we need to recapture this and push this club forward".

Arsenal's trophy haul over the last decade is limited to three FA Cups, and they have rarely competed for the title during that period.

The fact that Emery insisted on speaking English (aside from when answering questions in Spanish), even though the club had arranged an interpreter, showed that he was keen to make a good impression on the British press. I think that's about battling for every title. That's something in Arsenal's history and in my history as well. "I know they already are, but I want them to continue to be".

Emery, however, will not have the financial resources he enjoyed at PSG who previous year shattered the world transfer record to sign Neymar from Barcelona for 222 million euros ($260.25 million). Always, the good teams forget what they have done and think what they have to do again. "The objective is to work hard together and with these talented players to work", he said. "It's very important for me to be a protagonist with the ball and pressing when you don't have the ball". "We're confident he is the right person for the job and that he will work to deliver the triumphs our fans, staff and everyone who cares about Arsenal want", he said.

"I believe we can grow with the players we have". This is a big team with great players.
