"The first was progressive, entertaining football, a personality that fits with Arsenal's values and also a record of developing players - in particular young players - through detailed tactical instruction".

"All of the eight people we approached were interested in the position and took part in extensive, first-person interviews and none of them withdrew at any point".

"We were in a fortunate position to name our first choice". I think we can be and we want to be a candidate for them. "We are working in a different way to the past, more of a team effort, supporting Unai's vision and energy and finding ways to be successful".

"He has a feeling and competitive energy and it is this passion, love for football and will to win that made us feel it as exactly right for Arsenal".

"I'm very excited to be given the responsibility to start this important new chapter in Arsenal's history".

Emery was announced as Arsene Wenger's successor at Arsenal this morning on a three-year deal.

There are a lot of questions about the current Arsenal squad.

The 46-year-old, who left Paris Saint Germain after winning the domestic treble this term, arrives at the Emirates Stadium with Arsenal in turmoil after a woeful season saw them finish sixth in the Premier League.

It also wouldn't be shocking to see him try and bring PSG players to Arsenal like Goncalo Guedes, Thiago Motta, Angel Di Maria, Yuri Berchiche, Julian Draxler and so on, all to help him with the move and give him a sense of comfort and familiarity with the players. "The objective is to work hard together with these talented players".

"It's very important for the club, after two years outside the Champions League, to work to be the best team in the Premier League and also in the world".

"For all the coaches in the world, he is a reference".

"It's a big challenge for me but I worked also with other big projects and, for me, I am proud to be here and work after Arsene Wenger".

"Thank you, Arsene Wenger, for your legacy".

Emery won the Ligue 1 title, the French Cup and the League Cup this past season in Paris.

A luxury few teams have, Arsenal always expected to be in the Champions League every year and more often than not, they were.

Emery's reputation was elevated after guiding Sevilla to three straight Europa League titles, but he couldn't make an impact in the continent's more illustrious competition.
