Henrikh Mkhitaryan: The players are not sure what to expect from new Arsenal manager Unai Emery


Arsenal attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan says the players are not sure what to expect from new manager Unai Emery.

The Spaniard took over from Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman left his position at the end of the season.

The Armenia international joined the Gunners during last January's transfer window and is expected to be one of the key players for Emery.

"I still haven't had an opportunity to meet him," Mkhitaryan said in an interview with VivaroNews Sport.

"We didn't have time to talk with each other. I hope he will bring new tactical ideas and spirit to Arsenal, and I hope he will succeed.

"I haven't talked to my team-mates about him. I would like to meet him. We're not sure what to expect.

"Everyone at the club is a professional. Everyone knows what he should do and what he is expected to do.

"Not only the players, but the staff overall were sad [with Arsene Wenger's departure]. It's not that easy to handle the exit of a man who was managing the team for 22 years," he added.

"You can't imagine how everyone was amazed with the atmosphere he had created. If he decided to stay for 10 more years, no one would have been against [it]."
