Reactions Trail Arsenal Official Unveiling Of Unai Emery As New Manager
Emery, 46, joins the Gunners having left French champions PSG after guiding them to the Ligue 1 title.
The Spaniard also won four domestic cups with the French giants, having previously steered Sevilla to three successive Europa League triumphs.
He succeeds Frenchman Arsene Wenger, who has left after 22 years in charge.
The club also confirmed the news in a tweet.
“Unai has an outstanding track record of success throughout his career, has developed some of the best young talent in Europe and plays an exciting, progressive style of football that fits Arsenal perfectly,” Gazidis added.

Reactions have trailed his appointment on Twitter and here are some of them
Domestic trophies: 5
European trophies: 3
Domestic trophies: 0
European trophies: 0
But One is apparently a young progressive manager at Tottenham while the other is a flop. Jog on. #WelcomeUnai

Without managing a single game for Arsenal, Unai Emery has the same amount of silverware in England as Mauricio Pochettino.#WelcomeEmery

Unai Emery? I’m in! I think with his track record and obvious passion he could become a great success. Big job ahead. Massive shoes to fill. Let’s give him the platform of patience and understanding he will need. #goUnai

My personal expectation for Unai Emery next season..
1. Take us back to the Top 4
2. Win any of the cups (League Cup, FA cup or preferably Europa)
3. Make the defence line tighter
4. Play attractive football in the process
5. Beat Mourinho #WelcomeUnai

Best goal difference in Europe’s top five leagues in 2017/18:
+79: Pep Guardiola’s Man City (106 scored, 27 conceded)
+79: Unai Emery’s PSG (108 scored, 29 conceded)
The only two sides to score 100+ league goals.

0 – Unai Emery has come up against Pep Guardiola (10 games) and Jose Mourinho (5 games) on 15 occasions overall, but hasn’t won a single one of those matches (W0 D5 L10). Hierarchy. pic.twitter.com/nrimNwI3K1
