Darren Burgess Reveals What Unai Emery Most Wanted To Change At Arsenal

09 August, 2018, 19:30 | Author: Suzanne Horton
  • Unai Emery

The Spanish manager took charge of Arsenal just a few months ago as Arsene Wenger's replacement.

Understandably, Arsenal fans were excited by the prospect of signing such a talented attacker but our joy was short-lived as respected BBC journalist David Ornstein was quick to play down the reports. "Arsenal will look at a new keeper in one or two seasons".

And Burgess has revealed that Emery has been particularly focused on improving their defence before the start of the Premier League campaign.

Juergen Klopp's side, bolstered by the likes of Brazil keeper Alisson from AS Roma, compatriot Fabinho and fellow midfielder Guinean Naby Keita, are the most likely to close the gap on City who won the title by 19 points last season. His sessions are very intricate in that regard.

"Looking around the dressing room and seeing what other players are being paid, in Arsenal's case the ludicrous contract that they awarded to Mesut Ozil in February, Ramsey might not think he's going to get that level of contract, sees himself as all footballers do when they get the age of 28, think this could be my last major contract".


Rather than building on Arsenal's already implemented attacking approach and star power like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the former Liverpool defender expects Emery to adopt a more rigid approach.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth previous year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.

"Like Arsene [Wenger], he's a workaholic: he's always watching film of training or the opposition".

"He's unbelievably passionate and the training sessions are extremely up tempo and full of instructions and hands on. It's been great getting to know him".
