Unai Emery surprised more than 300 of our fans when he turned up at our Emirates Stadium supporters event on Wednesday evening.
Having already met club staff, our new head coach took part in a question and answer session alongside chief executive Ivan Gazidis, and was keen to share his footballing philosophy.
“For me, it’s after I met with the staff, now I’m meeting with the supporters,” he told Arsenal.com. “Together, we can make things better and achieve success in the next years.
“For me, the supporters are like one table with four legs. All the legs are very important. One leg is the organisation, the second leg is the team and the players, the third is the media who broadcast our success all around the world, and the fourth is the supporters.
“The four legs are very important for the table and likewise for Arsenal. If you lose one leg, you break. I’ve used this metaphor many times to describe our relationship with the supporters.
“I am very excited for everything to do with this club, with the staff, the supporters and the players at training on Monday,” he added. “This event is all about the supporters and I want us to be together here because the supporters want to know all about me. I am here for them.”
