Emery dodges Wilshere question in first Arsenal press conference

Emery dodges Wilshere question in first Arsenal press conference

"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".

Indeed, the 46-year-old has won the Europa League three times with Sevilla, and Ligue 1 with PSG, along with two Coupe de France, two Trophees des Champions, and two Coupe de la Ligue trophies.

"I have met Stan and Josh Kroenke and it's clear they have great ambitions for the club and are committed to bringing future success".

"I want to speak about the team collectively, I don't want to speak individually about the players", he explained.

The Spaniard emerged as the shock favourite earlier this week after it had seemed former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta was in line to land the job.

Arsenal's chief executive Ivan Gazidis gave Emery a tour of the Emirates Stadium.

Gazidis said the former Valencia, Sevilla and Paris St-Germain boss impressed the interview panel with his "meticulous preparation".

"His hard-working, passionate approach and his sense of values on and off the pitch make him the ideal person to take us forward".

"Unai Emery is to become our new head coach", said a statement on the club's website. We had a meeting on Monday.

Emery was let go by PSG with one year left on his contract and the roots of demise lay in two painful Champions League exits and a troubled relationship with star striker Neymar.

After his playing career ended in the 2004-05 season due to a knee injury, Emery took charge at Lorca Deportivo.

He also said he wants to keep the same brand of attacking football that was Arsenal's hallmark under Wenger - but hinted that he'll demand more pressing without the ball from his players. The Argentine didn't have a single press conference in English for his first 18 months in the Premier League and that allowed him to absorb the culture and feel his way into the PL. Emery is already way ahead of Pochettino in that respect and even if Arsenal's fans are looking for instant answers in every single press conference, it's unlikely Emery will deliver them simply because he has yet to master the English language.
