Unai Emery discusses his plans for Arsenal in first press conference

Positive start

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery has discussed his plans for the club ahead of next season as well as his ambitions with the Emirates side.

The Spanish boss was confirmed as the new Gunners boss on Wednesday morning having left Paris Saint-Germain last week.

While the manager had won the domestic treble, his performances in the Champions League ultimately cost him his job.

The side went out to eventual finalists Real Madrid but with PSG looking for a period of European dominance, it was not enough.

Ambitious

Now, Emery has moved onto the Premier League and has some very big plans for Arsenal.

That is because he has claimed that the club must work towards being the best team in the Premier League and even in world football.

“I believe in the players we have here,” Unai explained in a press conference on Wednesday.

We can grow with these players and the objective is to work hard with these talented players, to work to be a candidate for all the titles in the future.

Then it’s very important for the club, after two years outside the Champions League, to work towards this, to arrive and be the best team in the Premier League and also the world.”

A line for Wenger

Emery also made sure to thank his predecessor Arsene Wenger for his work with the club.

“For all coaches in the world, you are a reference. I learned with him all the things in football,” he explained.

“My English is not the very best now and I want to make an effort to speak with you to explain my ambition.

“I am very excited for this opportunity at a big club, a great city and stadium.”
