Success for Arsenal
Uani Emery has laid out his blueprint for success at Arsenal.
He said that the key is for the players to all work together to win the ball back, and to work as a team unit, making sure they grow together as a team.
He put a key emphasis on the passion the players will provide, and how organised they can be, noting it’s that which will bring success to the club.
Sky Sports report he said: “When we are thinking in an attacking moment, I want the goalkeeper thinking for that, he is the first.
“The same when we are thinking defensively, I want our strikers to be thinking: ‘We need to protect the goalkeepers’. I want those two moments to feel the same for all players.
“Success is to improve, grow up, build one team with personality, and then I want to win. I want to do it one way with this personality, enjoying with our supporters.
“We are looking in this way, one team with a passion, with a quality, organised, and in this way we are near to winning in the future.”
Europa League pressures
Of course, Emery would love to win the title with Arsenal, and noted that “It’s clear, the aim for the club is to arrive as champions, play for titles. But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it]”.
Yet, it would be a huge ask for Arsenal to play in the Europa League, go far in that competition and also win the league.
Emery is prioritising getting the team playing well and working together for their success in the short term, and wants the players and the fans to enjoy their football – something that has been in short supply at the Emirates in recent years.
