EPL: Mkhitaryan tells Unai Emery what he expects from him at Arsenal

After days of speculation Arsenal have officially announced that former Paris Saint German coach Unai Emery will succeed Arsène Wenger as their new coach

'Managing Arsenal is most attractive role in world football'

"It's a great challenge (to be at Arsenal)".

It's a curious statement considering many Arsenal fans will be keen for a quick turnaround after the club finished fifth and sixth in the Premier League, respectively, during the final two years on Wenger's watch.

"It's a big challenge for me but I have worked also in other projects, big projects", he told reporters. "My idea is to be protagonists - to play against all the teams with this personality".

He also cautioned against expecting instant rewards from the new man, dubbing any demands for immediate success "naive".

"I certainly think he needs two or three players".

'I still haven't had an opportunity to meet him. "For me this challenge is a dream come true".

Emery, who won three consecutive Europa Leagues with Sevilla before spending two years at Paris Saint-Germain, winning a domestic treble this past season, was one of eight candidates who went through an extensive interview process, Gazidis said.

Gazidis, head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat all agreed on the appointment of the Spaniard, with Mikel Arteta among those previously linked with the post.

As if replacing Arsene Wenger isn't tough enough, Emery insisted on conducting most of his news conference in English even though he's still coming to grips with the language.

'I haven't talked to my team-mates about him.

Mkhitaryan feels Emery's Arsenal must target a swift return to the elite of European football. That's in my history and Arsenal's, and I want it to continue. "Our first club motto was "Forward" and it's time for us to look forward", he said.

"We will transmit our emotion and we will fight for the objectives".

Emery will be able to count himself among a chasing pack for next term, with Guardiola's City defending a Premier League title they won with a 19-point advantage over nearest rivals Manchester United.

"I'm thinking about the present and the future".
