Arsenal appoints Emery as new manager
Published in The Egyptian Gazette on 23 - 05 - 2018

LONDON, May 23, 2018 (News Wires) - Arsenal have appointed Unai Emery as their new manager, the first man to take over the top job at the club since Arsene Wenger arrived in 1996.
Wenger's replacement is the 46-year-old Spanish coach Emery, who left Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer after two years in the French capital, winning the domestic treble this season.
"I am thrilled to be joining one of the great clubs in the game. Arsenal is known and loved throughout the world for its style of play, its commitment to young players, the fantastic stadium, the way the club is run," said Emery.
Emery's most notable body of work was winning three successive Europa League titles as Sevilla coach between 2014 and 2016. He began his coaching career at Lorca Deportiva in 2005 while also coaching Almeria, Valencia and Spartak Moscow.
Wenger's final season in charge ended in disappointment with Arsenal finishing sixth in the Premier League -- missing out on Champions League qualification for the second season in a row.
Emery had strengthened speculation he would take over as Arsenal's new manager after a photo appeared on his official website announcing him as the Premier League club's coach.
He is infamously remembered for PSG's 6-1 defeat at Barcelona last season in the Champions League last 16 that saw PSG squander a 4-0 lead from the first leg to go out of Europe in humiliating fashion.
Despite spending £198 million to break the world transfer record to land Neymar from Barcelona, PSG suffered more disappointment in the Champions League last 16 this term as they lost 3-1 away and 2-1 at home against Real Madrid.
Arsenal apparently opted against appointing former player Mikel Arteta as their next manager due to his lack of experience.
Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke and chief executive Ivan Gazidis apparently decided that appointing former the Gunners midfielder would be a risk because he lacks managerial experience at the top level.
The 36-year-old Spaniard now seems likely to continue in his assistant manager's role alongside Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
