Unai Emery set to take over reins at Arsenal

Arsenal to appoint Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger's replacement Unai Emery's task is to make Arsenal more ruthless
Troy Mann | 22 May, 2018, 21:14

Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta, now part of Pep Guardiola's backroom team at Manchester City, had been heavily rumoured to be the leading candidate and Wenger said last week the Spaniard "has all the qualities to do the job".

Emery, 46, won Ligue 1 and four domestic cups in two seasons in the French capital before departing earlier this month.

According to David Ornstein of BBC Sport, "an announcement and news conference are expected later this week" to confirm Emery as Wenger's successor.

Emery is not fluent in English but the Arsenal board did not consider it to be a big enough problem to vote against his appointment.

Another former Arsenal captain, Patrick Vieira, is believed to have been interviewed for the role, while Juventus manager Max Allegri and Hoffenheim's Julian Nagelsmann were considered but are understood to have indicated a preference to remain at their respective clubs.

Their new boss will need to work alongside head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, and rumours suggested Arteta was concerned with the incoming head coach's level of control in the new structure.

He will replace Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman left the club following 22 years in charge.

"Emery would come in and say 'where are we? who's going out? who's leaving? what's our situation in terms of buying?'".

"You know the stuff that's just going past?" I can't get it out of my head.

"What that all means now is that Unai Emery is the No 1 choice to be the next Arsenal manager". While the club hierarchy favoured the appointment of a young, emerging coach, Emery's track record at Sevilla, where he built one of Europe's most successful teams on a limited budget, persuaded Arsenal that he is the man to lead the team into a new era.
