New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed his plan to take every game step by step in order to achieve success in the first season with the club.
The 2018/19 Premier League season is just a month away and preseason for most of the English sides have already begun. Arsenal will have a new manager for the first time after 22 long seasons as legendary French manager Arsene Wenger left the club this summer. The North London side will be hoping that new boss Unai Emery breaths some new life into the club with his philosophy.
The Spanish manager arrived at the Emirates after winning the Ligue 1 trophy with Paris Saint Germain by a massive 13 point gap but he is aware that the Premier League will be a much more difficult challenge. Emery has also begun his preseason training with Arsenal and revealed his thoughts in a post-match press conference ahead of the first fixture against Boreham Wood.
Emery On His Challenge-
Speaking to the media in a press conference the 46-year-old was asked about what his approach would be like for the new season to which he replied, “Let’s go step by step. We need to do it this way, working and thinking with our minds. For me, the position is for the team to get better day by day, and we plan for the first match against Manchester City.”
For the Gunners wondering whether Emery would bring in a different philosophy to the club the new Arsenal boss gave a positive update, “I want to win. The performances, every day, for work on attacking, defending, is to be competitive in each match. My first idea is getting better day-to-day with our players and working hard with our players, to transmit my ideas. The system for me isn’t the most important. For me, the most important thing is to be and to create one competitive team. And then, we have the quality.”
Emery has outlined his priorities and stated that the most important thing for the club is to win which will go down well with most of the Arsenal faithful. However, they will face stiff competition from their league rivals for silverware. He has already shown intent with the signings and arrivals at the Emirates so far but allowed Jack Wilshere to leave the club.
