Pires: Emery is Arsenal's best signing

18 Jul 2018, 07:45

Unai Emery is the best signing the club has made in the close-season, says Robert Pires. 

Emery replaced Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman ended his 22-year stay with the Gunners at the end of last season. The former Paris Saint Germain boss has been active in the transfer market having already signed five players this summer. Stephan Lichsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Bern Leno, Lucas Torreira and 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi have all joined him at the Emirates ahead of the new campaign. 

The legend believes, the acquisition of Emery is the best signing for the north London side, "The best signing for me is Unai Emery, the manager. Of course I believe in the players, and especially the new players. But for Emery it's very important to start very well. He knows he's at a big club and has a lot of pressure, but I think he has a big character and spirit.

"He won in Spain. He won in France. He has a lot of experience and I hope for him and Arsenal that he is successful with the club," he told Sky Sports. 

Emery's Arsenal begins the new Premier League season with a trial by fire, facing defending Champions Manchester City on August 12, followed by a trip to London rivals Chelsea on August 18.
