Unai Emery of Arsenal – Playing from the "best way"

Unai Emery of Arsenal – Playing from the "best way"

The boss of Arsenal Unai Emery will not change his philosophy after a bad result and insists that his style of play from the back is "the best way" to achieve success in the club. The new Gunners coach has faced some criticism after the 2-0 loss to Manchester City – including Sam Allardyce and club legend Tony Adams, who questioned his tactics after the defeat. After taking over from Arsene Wenger, Emery emphasized the importance of using the goalkeeper to help play the ball out of the back, and it was clear that his players are still getting used to the new system. But the Spaniard is willing to continue with the same plan and is sure that his players will eventually dominate him. "We have not lost because of our personality, our idea, our style, we have not lost for this," said Emery. "We have lost on other things, we can improve on other things, tactics, improve our learning in the next game, but we are also building our style because we think it's the best way, to have control over every game, to find the best way to win. "The new style puts further pressure on the goalkeeper, with Petr Cech struggling to put the ball into play against Man City – and almost scoring an autogolibero own goal in the first half. However, Emery supported Cech to maintain his starting position against Chelsea on Saturday, and said that being part of the passing game is something that modern goalkeepers need to get used to. The trainer of Arsenal Unai Emery may have to look at his spending during the next transfer window. Stuart MacFarlane / Arsenal via Getty Images "It's an evolution in football, but football changes every year: goalkeepers can play like a player, start with center-back or right-back or left-back," said Emery . "It is not mandatory to start every action with [a short pass]. Perhaps if the opposition is putting pressure on us, then we must also find another option and play the ball for a long time in the second action. "We are training for every situation, I want at all times to know what our best action is. This is our style and our creative idea: we need – with confidence, with confidence – to build in every game and training session. in this process ". The Spaniard also insisted that he paid no attention to the negative criticism his team received after the loss of the city. "I'm looking at positivity inside [the club]. We can not always convey positive things outside, "he said. When you win, when you lose, it must be coherent, you must stay tuned, continue to think positively every day. You have to eliminate positive things from the game to build our identity. "The loss of Man City adds further pressure to Arsenal to get a result at Stamford Bridge, where they have not won in the league since 2011. And while Emery will stick to its overall philosophy, it could make some tactical changes compared to the City game "We are working in pre-season to build our ideal and I do not want to change it. But it is clear that every game is different. I think 70 percent of our personality is thinking for us, and 30 percent for the opposition. "
