Unai Emery seems to have revived Arsenal from the malaise that had set in under Arsene Wenger and now the Gunners' boss has fired shots at his predecessor about where the problems were with Wenger's team.
"Nowadays it's very hard for a coach to stay 22 years", Emery said in an interview with Spanish sports daily Marca on Thursday. "I talked with a lot of people who had interacted with him in his time and it was very reassuring".
"The process with him in this worldwide break is to finish training with us every day to start playing, little by little".
"Before Wenger arrived, Arsenal celebrated the 1-0 (win) and was based on defensive solidity".
"We need more in some things, being different tactically, individually, in the spirit, in the mentality". The big news for Arsenal though, is the return of Laurent Koscielny, although the defender is still quite short of match fitness. We had to stop it and start climbing. Sixteen matches, we've not lost, it's good.
