Emery announces ‘he wants to win something important’ after breaking Arsenal record
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has opened up and told the Gunners fans that he wants ‘to win something important’
Emery arrived at the Emirates last summer in a shock move by the Gunners after many in the media believed that former player Mikel Arteta could be the man to replace legendary boss Arsene Wenger, who shocked many and left the club after 20-years of loyal service.
And despite a few poor results as boss of the Arsenal, Emery has won 32 of his first 50 fixtures in charge – nine more than Wenger – and four more than George Allison, who held the previous record of 28, which was set in 1934.
Arsenal are one of the favourites to win the Europa League this season under the Spaniard and also finish back inside the top four, which would hand the Spaniard Champions League football for next season and a whole bunch of cash to spend on new players.
Speaking to Sky Sports about breaking Arsenal’s winning record, Emery said: “It’s great for us as a team and great for me as a coach, but I want to win all of the matches I play.
“I want to be here and have the possibility to win something important with Arsenal. I think we are improving. It is in our hands to do something important at the end of the season.
“I am proud of the players, I am proud of the club, I am proud of our supporters, I am proud of our situation now – with possibilities in the Europa League and Premier League.
“We want to play next season in the Champions League, but we know it is going to be difficult. We need our focus to be 100 per cent, we need everybody concentrated.”
many have critcised Emery this season for some of his decisions and performances, but has has done a really good job as boss of the Arsenal side and if they win the Europas League and get back inside the top four, he could not have asked for a better start to life as boss of Arsenal.
Emery has won trophies wherever he has been and that will be the case at the Emirates, if he is given time and funds to improe the squad.
