The post-Wenger era begins at Arsenal with the Gunners appointing Unai Emery as their new boss.

EMERYArsenal have officially announced Unai Emery as their new manager, replacing Arsene Wenger after 22 years.

The 46-year-old Spaniard left Paris St-Germain last month where he won one Ligue 1 title and four domestic cups in two seasons in charge.

Previously he guided Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League triumphs between 2014 and 2016.

Emery’s official website leaked the news last night but now the Gunners have officially announced the signing.

On the Gunners website, a statement read: “Unai Emery is to become our new head coach.

“He joins the club after completing a two-year spell at Paris Saint-Germain, where he recently landed the treble of Ligue 1, Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue.”

Arsenal chief Ivan Gazidis added: “Unai has an outstanding track record of success throughout his career.

“He has developed some of the best young talent in Europe and plays an exciting, progressive style of football that fits Arsenal perfectly.

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

“We conducted a confidential, wide-ranging and rigorous search involving extensive background references, data and video analysis, and personal meetings with all the candidates we shortlisted.

“All were interested in the position and we were unanimous in our choice of Unai to drive the next chapter of our history.”

Emery himself said: “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.

“I’m very excited to be given the responsibility to start this important new chapter in Arsenal’s history.

“I have met Stan and Josh Kroenke and it’s clear they have great ambitions for the club and are committed to bringing future success.

“I’m excited about what we can do together and I look forward to giving everyone who loves Arsenal some special moments and memories.”
