All Arsenal fans are very excited in Unai Emery’s arrival, and fully expect the Spaniard to introduce big changes to get the Gunners to be challenging for the Top Four once again. And it is even more pleasing when we hear the players are also excited about the changes and are feeling more and more positive that Emery will turn things around. Listen to what Shkrodan Mustafi had to say about his new boss. “I quite like the idea that the coach has on how he wants to play,” he said on Arsenal.com.
“He is going to bring us forward because he knows exactly what he wants to do and what he wants from the players.
“He knows exactly what kind of game we want to play. That’s important because he can show you who you are on the pitch. You know exactly what the coach wants you to do when you have the ball and how to move. That’s important when you have a lot of young players.
“When I first met him, he had this aura that he knew exactly what he wants to do, what he wants to be working on, what are is priorities and he was very detailed. He was not trying to show us new football but he was trying to put one idea into the team which is the same for everyone and we work for the same things.
“Most of the time, they were basic things. They were nothing special – he is not trying to change the football world. He is someone who has a clear idea and is looking at details, to one or two metres. In today’s game that is very important because most of the time it is one or two metres that decides if it’s a goal or no goal. My first impression was that he is someone who really knows what he wants and really sticks to his idea.”
There is the devil in the details for sure! If all the Arsenal players are feeling the same way about Emery’s ideas then surely it is just a matter of time before it all comes together and we start shooting up the table again!
Onwards and Upwards!
