North London giant Arsenal have finally made their decision on who will replace Arsene Wenger following the French tactician’s exit this summer, with Unai Emery prepared to take over as per BBC Sport reporter David Ornstein.
Emery relieved by PSG
The Spaniard tactician was relieved of his Paris Saint Germain duties at the end of the campaign and is prepared to step into yet another role at a top club.
It was initially thought that Manchester City assistant coach and former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta would return to the Emirates Stadium as the side’s first-team boss, but it looks as though the side’s board have decided that the former Sevilla manager is the best man for the Arsenal job.
Arsenal reportedly set to appoint Emery
Emery led the French Ligue 1 champions to the league title and also won the French Cup – Coupe de France, but his poor run of form in the UEFA Champions League led the Ligue 1 giants to replace Emery with former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel recently.
BBC Sports Football reporter David Ornstein suggests that Unai Emery will be confirmed as the new Gunners manager this week, with preparations underway ahead of next campaign.
Mikel Arteta has reportedly withdrawn from the race to succeed Arsene Wenger, leaving Emery as the only option.
