Unai Emery has been confirmed as the new Arsenal manager. The Spaniard replaces Arsene Wenger in the Emirates hot seat after the Frenchman stepped down after 22 years in north London.
Previously, Emery led Sevilla to three successive Europa League trophies – a proven track record which seemingly saw him emerge as the preferred candidate ahead of former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta for the Emirates Stadium job.
The new manager said: “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.
Emery was officially unveiled as the new manager this Wednesday on a lucrative deal worth £6million-a-season after agreeing to replace Wenger at the helm.
