As Wenger replacement, Unai Emery has quickly stamped his authority at Arsenal. Thanks to their wins on the spin, the Gunners have jumped to fourth place in the Premier League table. And this got fans singing, “We’ve got our Arsenal back!” But how does Unai do to gain the success? Here are the 5 secrets behind Unai Emery’s revolution at Arsenal.
5. Sugar ban
Emery has banned sugary drinks at the club’s training ground. One player during Wenger’s reign boarded the team coach holding a bottle of Coca-Cola. And Wenger let it slide easily. But the new man in charge would not be so forgiving. Now Arsenal players are disciplined on their diets strictly under Emery reign.
4. Keep quiet and work! No more Mr. Nice Guy
Wenger had nurtured a relaxed atmosphere at the club, believing it would help his team be calmer on matchday. But under Unai, the training ground is far less breezy. The Spaniard sticks close to his inner circle only. And that is a source of frustration for those who were used to Wenger’s more open demeanor. They just keep quiet and work!
3. Attention to details
Compared to Wenger, Emery is far more involved in direct coaching and players are happy about it. He spends more time focusing on the tactics of the opposition than Wenger. Tactical sessions can be arduous and time-consuming but Emery’s attention to detail has impressed the squad.
