Emery: 'Managers in England live as prisoners of results'
- The Spaniard believes the pressure is constantly on the managers of clubs.
- The head coach claims that the days of long-term managers like Arsene Wenger are over.
- The 47-year-old adds that he feels 'respected' at the Emirates and would like to fully develop his project.
Speaking with Spanish radio station Cadena SER, Unai Emery talked about the job as a manager in England and how tough it could be sometimes due to pressure. Despite this, the Spaniard hopes he will be able to remain at Arsenal for a number of years to see his project blossom.
"Managers in England, more so all the time, we live as prisoners of results.
"I signed for three years, but there are windows that can mean that is either fulfilled or not. Halfway through the season, I commented to them, that up until now I had won [in my career], thinking that one day I would have to leave the club.
"And here is the only place where I win with a view to continuing a project with the club."
"It’s the first time that has happened to me: I feel respected and I am keen to be able to develop a project.
"Us coaches, in the end, are [working] where they want us. Not very often do we decide where to go. I was lucky enough to substitute Arsene Wenger.
"It will be impossible to be here for as long as he was because I think that long spells [for coaches] in football have ended. In England, the figure of a manager is highly respected, but it also has high demands."
