Welbeck: Arsenal are ‘right behind’ Unai Emery’s ideas

Danny Welbeck has said that the Arsenal players are ‘right behind’ manager Unai Emery and the new ideas he has brought to the club.

Emery took over at Arsenal earlier this summer after Arsene Wenger finally brought an end to his 22-year reign as the Gunners manager, with the hope of restoring the club to its former glories after a baron few years in the Premier League.

Arsenal have won the last four games on the bounce after they lost their opening two, although the Gunners defence has looked far from solid, surrendering chances with alarming regularity as Unai Emery tries to implement his new philosophy on the club.

They got their Europa League campaign off to a winning start on Thursday night, beating Ukrainian outfit Vorskla Poltava 4-2 at the Emirates, and one of the goalscorers Danny Welbeck has said that while the team were disappointed to concede two goals, they are right behind their new manager:

“It was a convincing win. It was difficult in the first half to impose our style of play but we had to be patient to try and implement things,” Welbeck told BT Sport.

“We got a few goals but it was disappointing to concede a few too. With the squad that we have got, we are focused on the next game.

“Everybody looks forward to the next game and we always want to win. All the lads are enjoying it [under Unai Emery] and you can see the way he wants to play. We are right behind his ideas.

“We want to keep getting better and better. There are always standards and we want to keep on improving.

“It is healthy to have great players all over the pitch and to have everyone fighting to be in that starting XI. It is a good headache for the manager to have.”
