Arsenal star predicts one major improvement Unai Emery will make from Arsene Wenger era

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin expects the team will become more organised after replacing Arsene Wenger with Unai Emery this summer.

The Gunners made a huge decision ahead of the new season, with Wenger stepping down after 22 years in charge in north London, and Emery coming in as a somewhat surprise replacement.

While the Spanish tactician has impressed in spells with Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain, a number of bigger names had initially been strongly linked with the position.

Emery only emerged as a leading candidate at the last minute before being very quickly announced by Arsenal, but it seems he’s made an impression on Bellerin.

The defender already sees a big change in the way the team is set up, and while he was quick to praise both managers’ ways of doing things, he did make the claim that he feels the players will be more organised now, which will be music to many fans’ ears.

Hector Bellerin has discussed life under new Arsenal manager Unai Emery

‘Both coaches have philosophies that are completely different,’ Bellerin is quoted in the Daily Mirror.

‘We are getting used to it, working really hard, understanding how they want us to train and play. Everyone is doing really well and everyone is really excited. It’s different in many different ways.

‘Arsene Wenger was a manager that took a lot of inspiration from players, he gave you a lot of freedom. Unai Emery is a bit more tactical. We are going to be more organised on the pitch and they are different philosophies that have worked for them both.’
