Arsenal appointed Unai Emery as their new head coach in May last year and even though he hasn’t got them back to the Premier League top four, he has however led his side to a European final in his first season at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal offered Unai Emery a short-term deal because it was not a guarantee that he would be successful at the Emirates and he has indeed somewhat proved that he deserves another season as he got the most wins in first 50 matches than all his predecessors. Arsenal’s head coach Unai Emery has sent a special message to the Arsenal fans about his future, the gunners boss claims that this is the first time that he has felt at home in his managerial career.
Unai Emery has coached a number of top clubs including Valencia, Sevilla and Paris Saint Germain but he has however said that he feels that he can lead the Arsenal project whereas he has always felt like he could leave at his previous clubs.
“Throughout my career, I won things but knew I would have to leave. Here (at Arsenal), I feel respected and able to develop a project. It’s the first time it’s happened to me.” said Unai Emery in an interview with Cadena SER.
The Arsenal supporters will be hoping that he does succeed because they have not tested a lot of success since they made a move to the Emirates Stadium in 2006. Winning the UEFA Europa League will be a good start because the gunners don’t have many European trophies and they will have got automatic qualification in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
