It seems that the wait to discover who Arsenal’s new manager will be is almost over after Unai Emery basically confirmed it himself on his official website.
However, the Spaniard had clearly jumped the gun as the page now displays an ‘error’ message when clicked on.
Emery spent the last two years at Paris Saint-Germain, but was sacked earlier this month due to the club’s failings in the Champions League.
In his relatively short spell at Parc des Princes, the 46-year-old guided the team to five trophies, including the Ligue 1 title.
Prior to that, Emery was in charge of Sevilla for three years, in which he helped the team win the Europa League crown each season.
According to The Telegraph, Arsenal have informed Emery that he can bring in four members of his own backroom team.
The publication states that Juan Carlos Carcedo is expected to join him as assistant manager, while a goalkeeping coach will also be added to the staff.
Arsenal fans, in particular, are excited about the idea of a new goalkeeping coach as many have been disappointed in Petr Cech’s performances between the sticks this season.
Some, though, are not too thrilled about the new addition due to the form of PSG goalkeepers Kevin Trapp and Alphonse Areola.
