Unai Emery has now been at the club for four months - so how would he sum up his experience in England so far?
Our head coach faced the media ahead of our game against Watford, and this is what he told them about his early impressions:
- Emery - Gracia is competitive and always improving
- Our head coach on Ramsey’s Arsenal future
- ‘Each player is doing well… but we need more’
on if he's enjoying it here so far...
on what he is enjoying - or not enjoying...
I am enjoying it because I love my work and when I can explain my work with the players, they are responding as I want and also with every match with a good result, like the last matches, I am happy. For me, it's a very good experience at the moment. There are still many matches, many days and I hope many years for continuing to improve here with my experience and my knowledge. But now, at the moment, I think the club is giving me a lot of positive things. I am working every day with the players with a very big commitment and my demands are very great, very big and also my challenge here too. I want to share with the players and with the club also, my challenge to learn and to improve together.
on what he doesn't like about England...
I was born in the north of Spain, with the rain. Then I lived a lot in Spain, with the sun. I love the sun a lot. But also, we need the rain. Maybe if rained less, it'd be better.
