Dani Ceballos has nothing but warm words about Unai Emery
Some of the fans may be calling for the head of Unai Emery and he may be widely criticised but not by Dani Ceballos.
The Spaniard has immense respect for his fellow countryman hailing his achievements since he took over from Arsene Wenger.
The 23-year-old, who is on loan at Arsenal from Real Madrid, is currently on international duty with Spain. The playmaker was speaking to the press ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
“I arrived on the first day and the respect they have for him is tremendous, he has turned around the club’s situation in just one year,” He told Radio Marca.
“He has managed to compete and only just missed out on the Champions League, he almost won the Europa League.
“We’ve started well, just one defeat, third in the league and we are going up.”
It is good that Ceballos has so much time for Emery but a lot of the fans will disagree with his assessment. Arsenal collapsed at the end of last season, Ceballos was not a Gunner then so he does not know what it was really like.
The Europa League final humiliation is not something most of the fans look back on with pride either.
Ceballos means well but the jury remains out on Emery and he has until the end of the season to prove he is the right man for the job.
