I want my team to ‘suffer’ – Arsenal coach

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has said that he wants his team to ‘suffer’ following their 3-0 victory over FK Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday, uniquesports.com.ng reports.

Goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Emile Smith-Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi ensured victory for Emery’s men.

Emery, who said he wants his side to suffer after defeating the Azerbaijan side, insisted that he doesn’t want the Gunners to play easy matches again.

“Good evening. Yes, each match for us is not easy”, Emery told a press conference as quoted by Inside Futbol.

“Firstly, because when we are playing away, we are playing against a good team like Qarabag today.

“Good players also and with a very great ambition and excited to play against us.

“Their mobility, their quality in above all the first half, I think we suffered in the match.

“But I want to suffer. I want to not find easy matches, like today.”

Emery added, “Then, in our moments, to show you and show them our possibilities, our quality and our organised moments.

“I think in the 90 minutes today, the team worked very well”

Emery’s men have now won eight games in a row across all competitions after their poor start this campaign.

They will now face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday in the Premier League.

Wenger reveals Ozil’s problem under Emery

Published

Arsene Wenger has suggested Arsenal’s decision to give Mesut Ozil a long-term contract may have left the playmaker in a “comfort zone”.

The Gunners handed Ozil a deal until 2021 last January amid speculation that he would follow Alexis Sanchez out.

Wenger was still manager at the time, and although the move to tie down the player was seen as a positive one, the German has slipped down the pecking order under new boss, Unai Emery.

Ozil last started a game on Boxing Day and has made just two substitute appearances in all competitions in 2019.

“I feel that the length of the contract has nothing to do normally with the selection of the team. But sometimes there are special cases.

“Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years we have a good player for five years. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they practise, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone.

“He has a contract but the problem is that, if you want to buy a player like him, you have to spend £100m. And to maintain the value of the player, beyond the Özil case, it is more about the way football is structured.

“To buy players of top, top quality you need £100m. So the decision you have to make is whether you re-sign the player, who costs us nothing, or do we have the money to buy a new player?” Wenger said after being honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award at the Laureus World Sports Awards on Monday.

Arsenal will demand at least £60 million for Matteo Guendouzi following interest from Paris Saint-Germain, The Sunday Express reports.

Guendouzi signed for the Gunners last summer, joining in a £6m deal from Lorient.

The 19-year-old has quickly established himself at the heart of Unai Emery’s midfield and has made 33 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

PSG have been monitoring Guendouzi’s progress in the Premier League and are considering a bid this summer.

But the Gunners have set a £60m asking price, if the French champions do decide to make a move.

“I should have stayed calm but it’s not always easy. Sorry.

“There are still 90 minutes to play and I believe that my teammates will make it to the next round,” Lacazette wrote on Twitter.

Unai Emery’s side now need to win by at least two goals at home next week to advance.
