Arsenal star explains how he’s helping Unai Emery settle in

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has heaped praise on new manager Unai Emery’s efforts to learn English.

The Spanish tactician took over from Arsene Wenger this summer, and has big shoes to fill in replacing such a legendary figure at the club.

And while he’s at it, Emery has to do so whilst adapting to a new league and settling in to a new country altogether.

Thankfully, he has his fellow countryman Bellerin to help him learn the new lingo, though the defender insists the new head coach is not relying on any Spanish and is making a big effort to communicate only in English, as reported by James Benge of the Evening Standard.

Emery takes charge of his first Premier League game in charge of Arsenal today as they welcome champions Manchester City to the Emirates Stadium for a rather daunting first fixture of the post-Wenger era.

He’ll certainly need his communication skills up to scratch by this point if the north Londoners are to pull off his tactics and do what’s needed to get an unlikely victory.

Where will Arsenal finish in their first season under Unai Emery?
