Pires on Emery’s Arsenal spell
Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes the club could have given Unai Emery more time to prove himself.
Speaking on behalf of LiveScore, LaLiga ambassador Robert Pires said: “It’s impossible to compare Emery and Arsene Wenger during their Arsenal days. But the owner could have given him more time. It was difficult for him, especially with the language.
“I thought he did a good job back then. Unfortunately for him and Arsenal, they lost the 2019 Europa League final in Baku to Chelsea. The pressure on the manager is great.
“Managers and players need time. When you change countries, you change everything. I understand football, it’s international but not the same from country to country.
“Every country has a specific way of playing football. That’s why it can sometimes take longer for a coach or player to adapt.
“Can you imagine that we are talking about Lionel Messi, one of the best players in the world, and look what happened with his move to PSG in France? I repeat, it takes time to adapt.
“It was also difficult for Messi because Ligue 1 is more physical than LaLiga”
