Unai Emery was appointed as Arsenal manager on May 23, 2018 after Arsene Wenger announced his departure from the club.
Since his appointment, Arsenal has made a huge progress and currently is 4th in the Premier League table with 63 points, one point behind 3rd placed Tottenham.
Speaking to Copa90, Emery has revealed why he choose Arsenal and what was the moment that made him think that the club is special.
“The second half I remember a very good, very big energy and the atmosphere was special,” Emery told Copa90 when talking about their win over Tottenham.
“Big club, with big ambition,” he replied when asked why he chose Arsenal. “A big past, big present and we work at a big future. It’s a big challenge for me, and when a club like Arsenal call you it’s easy to say I want.
“It’s massive, the work before I arrived here, at this big club. It’s a big responsibility to me also, after Arsene to take it, but I take the responsibility with a big confidence in my work.
“Also because the club give me a big possibility to work with a very good training ground, a very good stadium, very good relationship with the supporters.
“Arsenal is very big not just in London but also around the world.”
