"That is very important for the club, after two years outside the Champions League, working for this".

A common goal with his new employers was a theme Emery returned to throughout his maiden media briefing as Arsenal boss. I hope he will bring new tactical ideas and spirit to Arsenal, and I hope he will succeed.

"The formal recommendation to the board was supported by a 100-page dossier with references, analysis, videos showing their coaching in action and a great degree of background information", Gazidis said.

"He has a feeling and competitive energy and it is this passion, love for football and will to win that made us feel it as exactly right for Arsenal".

Unai Emery's record against Pep Guardiola (drew 4, lost 6) and Jose Mourinho (drew 1, lost 4).

There will be plenty of those, of course, who will delight in citing the Andrew Sachs comparison, which was an easy shot to throw at Emery, but as he wrestled irregular verbs and rearranged an array of vowel sounds, we had a little glimpse of the man's determination.

Stan Kroenke, the club's majority shareholder, described Emery as a "proven winner". "He shares our vision to move forward, to build on the platform created by Arsène Wenger and help this club enjoy greater success".

Emery was equally enthused at being given the opportunity to fill Wenger's shoes at the Emirates.

"If he can restore these ingredients, then Arsenal can at least challenge in the Premier League".

"It's a big challenge but I've worked also with other big projects and for me I am proud to be here and to work after Arsene Wenger", he told reporters. Success this season would be developing but how? I think that's about battling for every title. That's in my history and Arsenal's, and I want it to continue.

"What we want to do is not fear any team neither here in the Premier League or in Europe and our objective is to be among the best and to beat the best". We play against all the teams with this personality.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis detailed how Emery came through an interview process featuring eight candidates that ran from 25 April to 15 May.

"Emery needs to bring in a player like Marco Verratti, who he managed at Paris Saint-Germain, to instil those qualities in midfield".
