Arsenal set to appoint Emery as new manager

Arsenal set to appoint PSG’s Unai Emery to replace Wenger

Emery announced last month he would leave French champions PSG when his contract expired at the end of the season.

Emery previously enjoyed great success on the European stage at Sevilla, where he won three Europa League titles in three full seasons at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

According to The Guardian, the club have conducted a thorough recruitment process as they look to replace Wenger.

While he had helped them continue their domestic dominance, his departure was assured when they failed to make significant headway in the Champions League for the second successive campaign.

Meanwhile Emery will have to quickly immerse himself in language lessons because despite the suggestions on Monday night that his English is not a problem then he has learnt it pretty recently if that is the case.

However, the Spaniard paid for his failure to get PSG beyond the last 16 of the Champions League in his two seasons at the Parc des Princes.

It was the first time Arsenal have searched for a new manager since 1996, with Wenger departing at the end of this season, after almost 22 years at the North London club, where he won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

Manchester City first-team coach Mikel Arteta had been a front-runner to replace Wenger, with City boss Pep Guardiola giving the former Arsenal captain his blessing to pursue a career in management at the Emirates.

But outspoken former Arsenal forward-turned pundit Ian Wright, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, said: "It's like they're at the sushi shop". No, I'll take that one now.

Paris Saint-Germain's Spanish headcoach Unai Emery is pictured before the French cup semi-final match between Caen (SMC) and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on April 18, 2018 at the Michel-d'Ornano stadium in Caen, northwestern France.
