Unai Emery Arsenal

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has discussed the blueprints for the Gunners this season, as he prepares for his first Premier League game in charge of the club.

The Gunners were handed the most difficult start possible, as they host last season’s Premier League winners Manchester City at the Emirates stadium on Sunday.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Emery discussed his plans for the new season:

“Our style with the ball is to be protagonists, to do things with combinations, to control the match with the positioning of the ball. And then when we have the space, to be aggressive going forward.

“Defensively: first it is to be organised, recover the ball quickly. But in these two moments in the match we need to work. To say it here is easier than doing it on the pitch. We also need time, but now I am happy because I think the players are improving.

“We need two things: quality players, which we have, and then organisation. Together I think we can improve, to win in our way. I repeat: organised, then play.”

The Spaniard revealed the ultimate aim of winning the title, but only believes in going for that aim whilst playing enjoyable football.

“It’s clear, the aim for the club is to arrive as champions, play for titles. But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it].

“I want the players and supporters to feel that together, and also enjoy each match, each moment in our stadium, and in this way the team transmits to the supporters the passion.”
