Arsenal appoint Unai Emery as head coach to replace Arsene Wenger

Unai Emery

Emery inadvertently seemed to confirm the news on Tuesday night when a subsequently-deleted image appeared on his official website alongside the quote "proud to be part of the Arsenal family". "I'm very excited to be given the responsibility to start this important new chapter in Arsenal's history".

Asked what his targets are for next season, Emery, who just led Paris Saint-Germain to a domestic treble, said development is most important. "It's signed, it's a stable contract and he will take with him his coaching staff", a source close to Emery told ESPN FC.

"We spoke in this moment about who they want, and how I want to work".

Three other assistants - technical coach Pablo Villanueva, fitness coach Julen Masach and video analyst Victor Manas - also have worked alongside Emery for several years. Ivan Gazidis, the chief executive, has overhauled the club, with Raul Sanllehi and Sven Mislintat having been given overall responsibility for transfers.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis said the decision to appoint the former Valencia and Spartak Moscow boss had been unanimous.

"His hard-working, passionate approach and his sense of values on and off the pitch make him the ideal person to take us forward".

Ubisoft Hints at 'Unannounced Franchise Title' in Earnings Report
It's time to speculate! Previously, Ubisoft planned to release four AAA titles and predicted it would sell 23 million units. If we had to guess, that game is probably Watch Dogs 3 or the recently rumored return of Splinter Cell .

"We were in a fortunate position to name our first choice".

Emery, however, will not have the financial resources he enjoyed at PSG who previous year shattered the world transfer record to sign Neymar from Barcelona for 222 million euros (195 million pounds).

Unai Emery dodged a question over the future of Jack Wilshere as he gave his first press conference as the new Arsenal boss.

Before his spell at PSG, Emery spent three seasons at Sevilla, taking the Spanish club to three consecutive Europa League titles. The rest of his career was largely spent in Spain's lower leagues with sides Toledo, Racing Ferrol, Leganes and Lorca Deportivo.

"All the players I want to speak to individually".

He also said he wants to keep the same brand of attacking football that was Arsenal's hallmark under Wenger - but hinted that he'll demand more pressing without the ball from his players.
