|Unai Emery to Arsenal: Will the players respond to a new approach?
| ลิ้ ง sbo Unai Emery’s emphasis on the details will represent a key change of approach for Arsenal. But will it work? Adam Bate takes a look... Emery is the more prosaic appointment. He is the known quantity. Although Mikel Arteta's past experience at Arsenal was a factor in his favour, it was his inexperience that appealed to many because it offered the tantalising prospect of the unquantifiable. Could Pep Guardiola's assistant be football's next super coach? Arsenal supporters could dream.
Instead, it is Emery and there are similarities between him and his predecessor. Like Arsene Wenger, the new man will be 46 when taking up the post. He has even had the moniker of 'professor' just as the Frenchman once did. The two men share a pathological obsession with football. Emery's old Valencia winger Joaquin once suggested that it was an illness.
But this is no continuity candidate. Indeed, what is most intriguing about this appointment are the differences between the pair and, as a result, the possible shift in emphasis that could now be seen at Arsenal. Wenger's obsession never did translate into an obsession with details. He offered freedom and encouraged players to solve their own problems. ลิ้ ง sbo
The familiar accusation that Wenger did not adapt his approach to the opposition dogged the latter years of his reign. It was offered up as an explanation for the team's inability to pick up results in the biggest games, particularly away from home. Wenger's Arsenal sought to impose their own game on the opposition. If they could not, problems usually followed.
All the evidence suggests that Emery is likely to approach the task rather differently. He arrives having spent two seasons at Paris Saint-Germain - the wealthiest club in France - but by common consensus this did not play to his greatest strengths. Emery has been at his best when devising ploys to thwart opponents. Working out ways to win against the odds.
That was evident even before he made a name for himself with a trio of top-three finishes at Valencia and those three Europa League triumphs with Sevilla. It was at Almeria where he won promotion to La Liga and the praise of iconic coach Arrigo Sacchi. Once there, he enjoyed wins over his future employers Sevilla and Valencia, and, most notably, Real Madrid. ลิ้ ง sbo
