EPL: Unai Emery breaks silence on Arsenal replacing him with Arteta

The former Arsenal coach, Unai Emery, spoke about the club’s decision to replace him with Mikel Arteta. The 48-year-old was fired last month, after a period of 18 months in charge ended with a seven-game winless race.

Manchester City’s assistant chief, Arteta, was announced as the new chief of the Gunners on Friday. Emery, speaking with BBC Sport, insists that the Gunners are making “a good decision” by naming their compatriot.

“He is really ready to take the next leap. “He has been in Arsenal before, has been in the Premier League and has been working with Pep Guardiola.” I think this is a good decision and I would also like it to be a good decision, ”said Emery.
