Unai Emery backed by Former Premier League star to bring back success at Arsenal

The Spaniard has been very busy in the transfer window

Unai Emery was appointed as Arsenal’s new manager back in May after Arsene Wenger decided to leave the club after 22 years at the end of the season. He signed a three-year deal worth £15 million.

The Gunners finished sixth in the Premier League last season and will miss the Champions League next season. The Spaniard has been charged with the task of returning the club to the European elite while challenging for major honours.

It has been a busy transfer for the Premier League giants, as the new boss has brought in new five players, reinforcing the particular areas which needed strengthening to compete for major silverware next season.

Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient, Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund and Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka have already signed new long term contract extensions. It is also expected that Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey will soon follow them too.

Former PSG boss has admitted that he is happy with the summer signings but hasn’t ruled out more signings if an opportunity comes before the transfer window closes.

Former Tottenham and Manchester United striker has backed Emery to brink back success at the club.

“He’s the right man for Arsenal to bring them to more success,” Berbatov told Standard Sport.

“I watched a lot of games when he was in charge of PSG and I liked the way his team was playing the ball around the pitch from the back with the keepers, through the defenders, midfielders and attackers.

“They always controlled the game and the ball was moving on the pitch not in the air and I think what he’s going to do with Arsenal.

“He will be even better at Arsenal because Arsenal are always trying to control the game with short passes and moving together up the pitch, so it’s a perfect place for him to develop his vision of the game and I think he’s going to have success there.”
