Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta also congratulated Unai Emery who finally got a new job. For information, the interpreter from Spain was officially appointed to handle Villarreal next season.
Yes, the former Paris Saint-Germain coach is believed to replace Javier Calleja in the Spanish La Liga club’s chair. In fact for Unai Emery, this is his first job since leaving Arsenal sacked in December 2019.
At that time, it could be said that the dismissal of the coach was an inevitable solution for Arsenal, following a series of poor results obtained by the North London club in the event. In fact, they were unable to win in the last 7 matches.
After Emery’s sacking, Arsenal briefly appointed Freddie Ljunberg to serve as caretaker coach. Then in early January, the Gunners officially announced their permanent coach, he is Mikel Arteta.
Arteta still remains in his position until now, although Arsenal’s performance has not been truly improved. Because, after the death of Emery, the Gunners squad was in ruins, both in terms of performance and mental.
However, the former Pep Guardiola assistant still feels that Unai Emery deserves appreciation. He too congratulated the predecessor and prayed for the best.
“Congratulations on his new job, he returns to Spain. He is a coach with a wealth of experience and has had success there. We wish him the best from here. There are many people on this team who like him and I have high respect for him. ”
“I am also grateful for what he has done here with the players, the effort to develop the team and the squad. We wish him all the best and hopefully all goes well, “said Arteta on the official Arsenal website.
Arsenal themselves threatened to fail to play on the European stage next season. However, the Gunners are still likely to be champions in the FA Cup.
“Hopefully next season will be different. We face many challenges, difficult but beautiful in front of us. “We have to return this club as it should, with top clubs in this country and in Europe,” continued Arteta.
