And for many of us, we got our first introduction to Emery on Wednesday afternoon, after he was officially unveiled at the Emirates with an introductory tour and press conference.

Emery needs to bring in a player like Marco Verratti, who he managed at Paris Saint-Germain, to instil those qualities in midfield.

Arsenal finished a disappointing sixth-place in the Premier League this season but, speaking to French radio station RMC, Aubameyang has indicated that he is happy with Emery's arrival as the club look to the future. "On one hand, it's odd for all the fans that the coach has left".

OXFORD United's headway in the transfer market has been held up by the appointment of Unai Emery. But it's definitely a fresh start. I just felt that it was a very sensitive period for Arsenal.

"Of course it's weird that the coach goes after 22 years".

"But we have to have players of our own that we can keep our model working and moving forward. It's going to be a new start so we'll have so we'll have to see how it goes. everyone will have to get it into their heads that we have to work hard to rival the best".

'I think the history here is a team who loves playing with possession of the ball.

'All the work and all the coaching is a reference, and I learn with him all the things in football'. In Paris, boxed into a corner by the Qatar Sports Investments and their lavish spendings on attacking players, Emery was forced to abandon his inherent traits which made him so successful as a manager on the Mediterranean coast.

Emery's preferred formation of 4-2-3-1 in a counter-attacking set up will find fans in North London, especially due to the presence of Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in Arsenal's ranks - the young manager's nuanced yet meticulous approach a pleasant surprise for Gunners fans.
