London, ENGLAND: Arsenal have confirmed Unai Emery as their new manager succeeding long serving French tactician Arsene Wenger who left the club after 22 years in charge.

The Spaniard is expected to bring to the club his winning record that saw him guide Sevilla to three successive triumphs in Europa League before moving to Paris Saint-Germain where he stayed for two seasons.

He joins The Gunners after parting ways with PSG in the just concluded season despite winning all the domestic titles with the French Ligue One side except for a dismal performance in UEFA Champions League which is believed to have cost him his job.

Unai started his coaching career at Lorca Deportiva in 2005 after playing mostly in the Spanish second division. He went on to coach Almeria, Valencia and Spartak Moscow before joining Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain.
