It’s now official. Wenger is out and Unai Emery is in. The Spaniard was officially unveiled as the new Arsenal coach in a press conference at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. The news came just a few days after the media had reported that Mikel Arteta was expected to be named the new Gunners boss.
Not surprisingly the Arsenal fans have not been shy in offering their opinions on the new head coach. It appears that the majority of supporters are optimistic and ready to welcome Emery to the club. However, there is a contingent of fans that apparently are never satisfied.
Here’s a selection of some of the Tweets from those excited by the news of Emery coming to London:
Welcome unai emery as our new coach, hope we fans ALL get behind him & give him the time & patience to put his own ideas into practice, before all the idiotic bile starts from the haters. . COYG!!!— thegeordiegooner (@davidcoulson9) May 23, 2018
I am buzzing for what Unai Emery can bring to the table. Haven’t been excited about Arsenal in a long long time. The man gives off good vibes! #WelcomeUnai— Kausar Chy (@KausarChy) May 23, 2018
Of course some Arsenal fans are hard to please and here are a few thoughts voiced by those “supporters” that never seem to be satisfied:
Unai Emery is another step backwards. A continuation of the club falling in the abyss. Seen his work with psg in champions league. His sideline tactics were dreadful. When will we start the rebirth? It's hopeless.— Yyonghao (@yyonghao) May 23, 2018
Unai Emery literally is the worst option Arsenal could get, isn't he?— Andrea G. (@KakaAssist) May 23, 2018
Unai Emery is not a world class manager— Nii Odartey (@allhailnino) May 23, 2018
Here’s one from someone so unimpressed with Emery they want to see the return of Wenger:
When it was discovered that Emery has his own Twitter account one fan offered some excellent advice for the new coach:
Time will tell whether Arsenal fans will be singing the praises of Emery or not. At the very least, the guy needs to be given time and the chance to succeed.
