Carragher: New Arsenal boss Emery compared to Rafa Benitez

Carragher: New Arsenal boss Emery compared to Rafa Benitez

Arsenal's Head of High-Performance Darren Burgess has revealed what head coach Unai Emery most wanted to change about the club (via Fox Sports).

The Gunners appointed the Spanish head coach as their new manager at the end of the 2017-18 Premier League season following a hard campaign.

"So, therefore, I think they're going to struggle".

Arsenal fans heading to their clash with Manchester City on Sunday will do so with a sense of excitement and a little trepidation as new manager Unai Emery begins the post-Wenger era with the toughest of all opening matches.

It got interesting when Jens had to comment on the chances of Tottenham. The 46-year-old has won three UEFA Europa League titles with Sevilla, a French Ligue 1 trophy and two French League Cups with Paris Saint-Germain, and has been known for his high-pressing, intensive style of play, which Arsenal have been missing during the past few underwhelming seasons.

That gutsy display against the eventual bronze medalists is thought to have gained manager Akira Nishino more favour in his homeland, but the Japan FA would still prefer to bring in Wenger. "But it's must if you want to be a big side", the man added.

Jim Carrey gives out ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ details
The Sonic movie is being directed by Jeff Fowler, whose 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke was nominated for an Oscar. This follows confirmation that Jim Carrey will assume the role of Sonic's nemesis, Doctor Robotnik, aka Eggman.

Lehmann also said Arsenal's new goalkeeper Bernd Leno still has a lot to prove as he tries to topple Petr Cech as the Gunners' No. 1.

The Italian takes his side to Huddersfield Town on Saturday where Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world's most expensive keeper at 71 million pounds ($91.43 million), is set to make his debut. He fails to do so?

While optimism is growing at Anfield, the same can not be said at last season's runners-up Manchester United who kick off the new season on Friday at home to Leicester City with a squad that is under-cooked, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

Further, Lehmann had to share his thoughts on Alisson Becker, Liverpool's new number one.

"I am always interested to see whether those players can actually become world class".

It would be interesting to see whether the Arsenal legend's comments attract attention of the big coaches and spark a battle of words in near future.
