Arsenal confirm Unai Emery as new boss

The former Paris St Germain boss posted a message on his official website which read: “Proud to be part of the Arsenal family.”

Unai Emery has been confirmed as Arsenal’s new head coach.

The former PSG boss is the first new manager to take over the club in almost a quarter of a century following the departure of Arsene Wenger.

Emery, 46, left French side Paris St Germain at the end of their campaign following a two-year stint during which he won one Ligue 1 title and four domestic cups.

Previously, Emery led Sevilla to three successive Europa League trophies – a proven track record which seemingly saw him emerge as the preferred candidate ahead of former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta for the Emirates Stadium job.
