Unai Emery relishing challenge of succeeding Arsene as Gunners boss

Arsenal appoint'progressive Emery as Wenger successor

He also said he wants to keep the same brand of attacking football that was Arsenal's hallmark under Wenger - but hinted that he'll demand more pressing without the ball from his players.

"Those eight people took part in an extensive, in person interviews with us and none of them at any stage withdrew their interest".

"All the conversations I have had with the club shows we share the same vision for the club".

"All were interested in the position and we were unanimous in our choice of Unai to drive the next chapter of our history". He has an energy, a competitive energy, and will to win that made us think this was a ideal fit for Arsenal'. "I know my ambition and my passion and to know how I want to grow up with Arsenal".

Arsenal finished 37 points behind champions Manchester City this season and closing that gap will not be easy.

Speaking at his first press conference as Arsenal head coach, Emery would not be drawn on the club's plans in the transfer market this summer, saying he needed to speak to the players individually. One of the complaints from supporters was the lack of quality in the current squad.

Despite this, the Arsenal hierarchy is confident that Emery's arrival can put an end to the discontent that has crept into the Emirates, both on and off the field.

"It's very important for the club, after two years outside the Champions League, to work to be the best team in the Premier League and also in the world".

Following two seasons with French champion Paris Saint-Germain, Emery has been charged with arresting the club's slide without altering its famed style of play, as Arsenal prepares to enter a second consecutive season without Champions League football.

"For all the coaches in the world, he is a reference".

"The objective is to work hard together and with these talented players". We learned, I learned from him all the things in football.

"It's a big challenge for me but I worked also with other big projects and, for me, I am proud to be here and work after Arsene Wenger".

The 46-year-old has been hired to fill the sizeable void left by the departure of Frenchman Arsene Wenger who had been at the Arsenal helm since 1996.

"I thought also Mikel Arteta would have been a good appointment".

Before moving to France in 2016, Emery had a significant track record of success in Spain, winning three successive Europa League titles with Sevilla.
