Gunners legend Winterburn has special message for impressing Arsenal boss Unai Emery

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has installed a new belief and atmosphere at the Emirates since arriving at the club, according to legend Nigel Winterburn.

Despite a relatively disappointing domestic Cup and Premier League title push, the Gunners still have a chance of winning the Europa League under the Spaniard while also getting into a top four spot, if they can beat off the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea.

It is a far cry from a Gunners side that finished way down in sixth position in the Premier League last season under Arsene Wenger, with the Frenchman’s tactics and style of play seemingly outdated for the clubs immediate success.

“At this moment in time, the atmosphere within the stadium (is biggest change)” Winterburn told The Debate.

“Particularly last season with Arsene Wenger, it was toxic at times within the stadium, Arsenal supporters arguing with each other, and I think there’s just a renewed energy with Unai Emery coming in.

“Different voice, different style of play, he’s quite happy to bring people off after 45 minutes, I just feel there’s more belief around the stadium and the atmosphere in some of the home games has been very, very strong.

“This is not Unai Emery’s team; he’s not bought in many players, bar one or two, and I’m looking forward to seeing if he gets another two or three transfer windows and have money to spend, and see where the team are from there.”

Here is what we think on Emery.

So far Emery has done a decent job at the Emirates and is starting to build a side that will once again challenge for the Premier league and Champions League titles, he just needs a bit more time and a few superstar signings in the summer to be real contenders.

The Gunners made a smart choice in hiring the Spaniard, he just needs the backing of the Arsenal faithful and hierarchy if he is to bring success back to the club.
