Arsenal fans fail to agree on imminent appointment of Emery as manager

Ever since Arsene Wenger announced his plan to resign as Arsenal manager at the end of the season, attention turned to his possible replacement.

The new leader had huge boots to fill given that Wenger was in charge of the North London outfit for 22 years, during which he won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

For weeks, former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta was thought to be the front-runner.

The 36-year-old inexperienced candidate only retired from the game two years ago, and since then he has been working as an assistant coach to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

On Monday, a curveball was thrown when BBC Sport reported that former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery was to be appointed this week.

It is believed that the Arsenal board unanimously agreed that the Spaniard was the right man to succeed Wenger.

The 46-year-old’s CV is impressive given that he won five trophies, including the Ligue 1 title in two years at PSG.

Prior to his arrival at Parc des Princes, Emery guided Sevilla to three successive Europa League crowns.

The surprise news has been met with a mixed response from Arsenal fans, who have been posting their thoughts on Twitter.
