“How We Intend To Dominate The Premier League” – Unai Emery Reveals
Arsenal new boss Unai Emery has unveiled his blueprint that will eventually lead the Gunners to becoming formidable and Champions in England.
Former Arsenal legendary boss Arsene Wenger built a legacy and the reputation of a top-notch coach but over the last decade, he failed to win any trophy barring the FA Cup and the club descended in class. Wenger decided to call time on his spell at the end of last season and Emery was appointed in his stead.
Emery is fondly remembered for leading Sevilla to two Europa Cup titles but even though he won the Ligue one with Paris Saint Germain, his spell at Parc des Princes outfit had almost nothing to cheer about. The aforementioned Spanish tactician has earned plaudits for the players he’s signed this summer but he has not been tipped to win the league title or even end the season in top four.
Nonetheless, Emery appear unfettered by the perceived limitation he is said to have and he has gotten his plan spot on for the coming season.
“Our style with the ball is to be protagonists, to do things with combinations, to control the match with the positioning of the ball. And then, when we have the space, to be aggressive going forward.
“Defensively: first it is to be organised, recover the ball quickly. But in these two moments in the match we need to work. To say it here is easier than doing it on the pitch. We also need time, but now I am happy because I think the players are improving.
“We need two things: quality players, which we have, and then organisation. Together I think we can improve, to win in our way. I repeat: organised, then play.” He said per Sky Sports
Emery added: “When we are thinking in an attacking moment, I want the goalkeeper thinking for that, he is the first. The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: ‘We need to protect the goalkeepers’. I want those two moments to feel the same for all players.
“Each player has this quality, this characteristic to help the team as a collective. For me, that is very important.”
