Unai Emery takes his first training session as Arsenal manager

VIDEO: Arsenal stars return for pre-season training

Arsenal have returned to pre-season training ahead of one of the most important season’s in the clubs recent history.

The 2018/19 season is of course the first season for 22 years where Arsene Wenger will not be in the dugout for the Gunners, with Unai Emery the man charged with replacing him.

Arsenal finished sixth in last season’s Premier League table, an incredible 12 points behind Liverpool in the fourth and final Champions League spot, and 14 behind North London rivals Spurs.

Emery has already started to rebuild the Gunners squad, bringing in experienced defenders Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, as well as highly rated young goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

There are other deals in the pipeline too, with Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira expected to join after his involvement at this summers World Cup has come to an end.

Those players who haven’t been involved in the showpiece tournament over in Russia have now returned to Arsenal’s training ground to start their pre-season preparations, and of course, meet their new manager.

The club have also released a video of the players being put through their paces by the clubs fitness staff:
