Unai Emery looking to do something important this year.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is in the second year of his two year contract and knows the pressure is on him to deliver.
Last season ended very disappointingly with a string of Premier League defeats and Europa League humiliation. Emery simply has to do better this season if he is to get a contract extension.
There have been questions over the 47-year-old tactics, team selection and formations. However, he believes that his way is the right way.
“I am speaking every day with Raul, Edu and the players,” he said. “And I really think our way is going right and working well.
“And really now I am very happy the club. I am really happy with the players. The last two, three, four weeks, every player – and Mesut Ozil – has been working very well. In this way we can be positive and we can think we are going to do something important this year.
“This is the way I want and I was speaking with Raul, he has the same idea when he is speaking with me.”
Nice confident words but the bottom line is that Emery has to deliver Champions League football at a minimum. If he wins domestic silverware but fails to qualify for the Champions League that will not be good enough.
Let’s hope that Arsenal does something important this year as Emery has stated.
