New Arsenal boss Unai Emery promises to deliver special moments and memories

It’s official. After a one month search Arsenal have appointed Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger’s successor at the Emirates.

Emery arrives at Arsenal on the back of winning the domestic treble with PSG, a club he led to seven honours in the space of just two years.

The Spaniard previously hoisted three consecutive Europa League crowns with Sevilla, and steered Valencia to three successive top-3 La Liga finishes, while he achieved promotions with Lorca and Almeria. He also had a stint in Russia with Spartak Moscow.

Arsenal now have an experienced and successful manager who is completely consumed by football.

He lives and breathes the beautiful game and will relish the opportunity to tackle the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp on a regular basis.

After landing the job, Emery told Arsenal’s official website:

“I am thrilled to be joining one of the great 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 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.”

Back in April the Gunners revealed that Wenger would be leaving the club in the summer after 22-years at the helm.

Since then just about every manager going has been hurled into the mix for the North London job, including the likes of Max Allegri, Luis Enrique, and Patrick Vieira.

However, the club’s former skipper Mikel Arteta then emerged as the red-hot favourite earlier in May, but with an appointment seemingly inevitable, Emery then burst into the mix and bagged the job following his departure from PSG.

Emery will look to create a team capable of challenging for both domestic and European honours, with Arsenal available at 20/1 to end their 15-year search for a fourth Premier League title.
