Ex-Gunners Kanu reckons Premier League title may be out of reach for Unai Emery
- Arsenal all-time legend doesn't really believe in Unai Emery capability of winning the Premier League title in his first season with the Gunners
Speaking to BBC Sport, the former Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu says: "If it happens and they win the league, it’s a miracle. It takes time for the newcomers, the new signings, to adapt. We have to allow time for him to bring his own style and the way he wants to play.
"For the new manager, it’s going to be a very big challenge; the fans want them to perform in the league in his first year, which is always difficult for a new coach.
"It’s a very big club – coming into a big club you need a trophy, so if you don’t win the league, you need to win the others. It’s hard, but that’s what you expect of a coach of that stature and a big club.
"He’s been signing new, good players. They’re more defensive and not allowing goals, which is good. They have to know how to win games, even if it’s 1-0. All they need is the three points."
My expectation for Arsenal this season. Remember, it’s an expectation and not a demand.— 'Improper' Fan (@5MinuteFinal) July 28, 2018
