Arsenal fans in meltdown over new Unai Emery video

Unai Emery confirmed as Arsenal boss

To no one’s surprise, considering Unai Emery had announced the news on his own website last night, the Spaniard was confirmed as the new Arsenal “head coach” on Wednesday morning.

Emery replaces Arsene Wenger who was Arsenal manager for the last 22 years.

The jury is very much out on Emery, despite plenty of silverware won at Sevilla (three Europa Leagues) and at PSG (are domestic trophies too easy in France?).

Nevertheless, the underlying feeling amongst Arsenal fans appears to be support for their new head coach in what really feels like a new dawn for the north London side.

“The next chapter”

With so much coverage of Emery’s arrival and with the club under a microscope, there was always the chance of a social media issue arising.

Arsenal fans have not reacted well to one video put out by the club on Wednesday.

It is titled “The next chapter… #WelcomeUnai” and explains the long list of Arsenal “managers” that have come before Emery.

Whilst it does not feature every Arsenal manager, it only goes up to George Graham.

Does Ivan Gazidis want to airbrush Arsene Wenger from Arsenal history?

Arsenal fans are now wondering why their most successful ever manager, Arsene Wenger, has been left out of this clip.

Some Arsenal fans are speculating that it suggests a rift developed at the club between Ivan Gazidis and Arsene Wenger.

Gazidis was responsible for changing the structure of the club as he prepared for Arsene Wenger’s departure.

Other Arsenal supporters are arguing that putting Arsene Wenger down as a “chapter” would have also been insensitive due to his achievements for the club.
