Arsenal appointed Unai Emery as their new boss during the summer transfer window and within such a short span of time, the former PSG boss has worked wonders with the club.
Emery has made a series of fine signings during the summer and now the Gunners sit pretty on fifth spot in the Premier League table.
And now the current Gunners boss has finally spoken out about the state of the squad during the final years of Arsene Wenger’s reign.
Talking to Marca, Unai Emery said: ‘Before Wenger came, Arsenal celebrated 1-0 and were based on defensive solidity.
‘With Arsene, joy came from attacking, with players of good standing. And the perfect combination was the Invincibles.
‘But over time, only technical quality and offensive freedom were taken care of, losing the defensive structure.
‘What I want is to unite both essences and be more competitive. Arsenal was in decline. We had to stop it and start climbing.’
But we feel it is not only Arsene Wenger who is to be blamed for this situation of the club. The management is equally responsible for this whole incident since after numerous protests they chose to stick with the Frenchman.
Finally, though, Unai Emery has managed to revive the fate of the club and now it looks like the Gunners will finally be back to playing Champions League football next season.
