Emery promises ‘new future’ for Arsenal

Posted on

first_imgThe 46-year-old arrives in north London to take charge of a squad that went stale under his predecessor Arsene Wenger, who had failed to win the Premier League title since 2004.Arsenal finished sixth in the English top-flight this season, missing out on the Champions League for a second successive year, while trailing 37 points behind champions Manchester City.Wenger was forced out after losing his grip on an unbalanced squad and, while Emery said he will give his players a chance to impress, the former Paris Saint Germain boss made it clear he is willing to breathe life into a moribund club with new signings.“It’s a big challenge for me but I have worked also in other projects, big projects,” he told reporters.“This is a big team, with great players. We think we need change, little things, a few players.“I want to speak individually with all the players face to face.“It’s very important for the club, after two years outside the Champions League, to work to be the best team in the Premier League and also in the world.”Despite the daunting task facing him, Emery, who was allowed to leave French champions PSG at the end of the season, insisted his move to Arsenal is a great opportunity.“This is a big project and I am proud to be here and to work after Arsene Wenger,” he said.“In my career every year I grew up with new challenges. For me this challenge is a dream come true.”Emery, who won the domestic treble with PSG this season, is on a reported £6 million per year contract after convincing Arsenal’s board he was the right man to replace Wenger.He won the race ahead of seven other candidates thanks in part to his willingness to work with chief executive Ivan Gazidis, head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat.That trio are the new power-brokers at Arsenal and Emery was quick to praise his employers.“Thank you Ivan, Raul and Sven. The first meeting with Arsenal people was with those three who, after three hours, gave me a very good feeling for how we will work together and create a new future for Arsenal,” he said.– ‘Win together’ –Speaking in broken English, Emery paid tribute to Wenger, who departed with three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups in a reign that transformed English football.“Thank you Arsene Wenger for your legacy, he has reverence from all coaches in the world. I learned with him all the things in football,” Emery said.Wenger won the double in his first full season with Arsenal in 1997-98 — an achievement that might be beyond Emery given the rebuilding job facing him.Asked what he hoped to achieve next season, Emery said: “I think that’s about battling for every title, that’s something in Arsenal’s history and in my history as well. And I want that to continue.“I don’t promise today we will win but I can promise you we will work hard and we will work together.“We will transmit our emotion and we will fight for the objectives.”Key to his attempt to revitalise Arsenal will be bringing the best out of Mesut Ozil, the World Cup winning German playmaker who has often cut a diffident figure in his time with the Gunners.Emery, a three-time Europa League winner with Sevilla, called on Ozil to commit to the cause, saying: “He’s one of the biggest talents here and I want talented players here.“I want to spend time with him and all of the players – to speak to them about how inspired and excited I am to be here and for them to feel it too.“We all need to give 100 percent and that’s what I’m looking for from every player and myself.”Worringly for Arsenal fans, Emery has never won a match against Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola or Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.“I’m thinking about the present and the future. In terms of my past experience, it has made me stronger today,” he said.“I’m excited to be here and fight against some top managers and some top teams.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Unai Emery is the new Arsenal head coach © AFP/File / CHARLY TRIBALLEAULONDON, United Kingdom, May 23 – Unai Emery has warned Arsenal’s under-performing stars he won’t be afraid to wield the axe as he prepares for the challenge of creating a “new future” for the troubled Premier League side.Emery was unveiled as Arsenal’s first new manager in 22 years on Wednesday as the Spaniard faced the media at the Emirates Stadium.last_img read more

Kyle Lafferty had another chance in the 53rd minute but saw his effort go wide. Rathmullan defended well and were always dangerous on the break.

Keelin Reid got the Ballybofey goal.CAPPRY CRUSADERS U12’sCappry Crusaders 5-1 Ballybofey CubsCappry Crusaders played the Ballybofey Cubs on Monday evening in Cappry Park and got off to a flyer of a start when they scored on their 1st break straight from the kick off. Credit must go to the young Ballybofey players who showed great character and didn’t let the early goal affect them. They put the Cappry defence under a bit of pressure for a while but our back line coped well with all that was thrown at them. Cappry started to settle into the game a little bit more as the half wore on and soon found themselves 2 nil ahead when a Ballybofey back pass was overhit and lobbed over the Ballybofey keeper. Once again Ballybofey showed character to get a goal back when Daithi McMahon broke down the right wing and scored to the back of the net. It stayed like this until half time. In the 2nd half Cappry kicked on and Conor McMenamin scored twice before Conor McGinty scored with a well struck penalty. Martin Mbuli was very unlucky not to get on the scoresheet as he was full of running all evening and only for a few great tackles from the Ballybofey rearguard he would have definitely have found the back of the net.UNDERAGE TRAININGKeep an eye on our Facebook page for details of training sessions.LAST MAN STANDING Still time to get your Last Man Standing forms in as the 1st week was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.

He also described the Government proposal to start charging for water from October 2014 as “cynical and unfair.”“Families will receive the bills in early 2015.“In a cynical move the government is holding off until after next year’s local elections before anyone receives bill.“Fine Gael and Labour know that to issue the bills before may would certainly mean a loss of council seats.“The current proposal to charge households for water was dreamt up by Fianna Fail but brought to life by Fine Gael and Labour,” he said. He added that he has been speaking to local Fine Gael supporters and members and they are genuinely concerned on where there party is going and are very unhappy with these austerity policies.“The time has come for leadership from our local government public representatives, to make a stand against their governments failed austerity policies and stand with the people, the very same people who gave these councillors their votes in 2009.“With the local elections coming up in may of next year, these government cllrs need to choose which side they are on – their parties or the people.”COUNCILLORS NEED TO CHOOSE THEIR PARTY OR THE PEOPLE – McLAUGHLIN was last modified: July 25th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:austeritybuncranaCllr Ciaran McLaughlinlast_img read more

AFCON 2019: Morocco, Ivory Coast in tasty Group D encounter

Posted on

first_imgMorocco lived it late to defeat Namibia last Sunday. (PHOTOS/Agencies)AFCON 2019Morocco vs Ivory CoastAl Salaam Stadium, CairoFriday, 28-06-2019 @8pmGroup D will be the center of attraction on Friday as the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations continues.Two of this year’s favourites Morocco and Ivory Coast will clash at the Al Salaam Stadium in Cairo, with the winner sealing a spot in the last 16.Morocco got off to a winning start, requiring a late Litamunua Keimuine own goal to take care of stubborn Namibia in the game played last Sunday.The Atlas Lions were frustrated for huge spells against the South African nation until an Hakim Ziyech free-kick was turned into his own net by the striker.Morocco needs to forget about the game against Namibia and focus on the task at hand, one which will indeed shape the fate of the group.“The game against Namibia no longer holds much importance, said Morocco head coach Herve Renard ahead of Friday’s game against his former employers Ivory Coast.“We have to focus on the game tomorrow (Friday) which I think is not any other group game.“I think the goal of the two teams is to go much further in the competition.”Renard was the manager of Ivory Coast between 2014 and 2015, helping them to their second AFCON time in his last year in charge.The Frenchman says he is fortunate to have been coach of the Elephants at what he terms as the right time.“In my career, I had the good fortune to be coach of this Ivory Coast team.“I have simply been lucky to be in the right place at the right time, and the Ivory Coast will always be a magnificent memory.Just like Morocco, Ivory Coast were winners in their opening game, defeating South Africa 1-0 on Sunday.Jonathan Kodjia scored the lone goal for the Elephants, one that means they start the day joint top of the standings in Group B.Kodjia (Left) scored the winner for Ivory Coast against South Africa.Kodjia made up for missing a gilt-edged chance in the first half with a 65th-minute winner after being set up by former Leeds player Max Gradel.With a host of high profile players including Lille’s Nicholas Pepe, in their ranks, Ivory Coast are big favourites to walk away with the AFCON title this year.Both sides go into the game without any injury worries.Ivory Coast’s Wilfred Zaha will be pushing for a start after coming off the bench against South Africa. However, the Crystal Palace star-player did not impress in his brief comeo against Bafana Bafana and it will come as no surprise if he is out of the starting XI once again.This will be the 9th meeting between the two sides since January 2006.In the past 8 match-ups between the two, they have drawn five with Morocco triumphing twice and losing only once.The Atlas Lions are unbeaten in their last 7 games against the Elephants, winning both of the last two encounters.The last time the two met in an AFCON game, Ivory Coast defeated Morocco 1-0 with Didier Drogba scoring the only goal of the contest in January 2006South Africa and Namibia who both have no points, square off later in the night in the other Group D game.The other games on Tuesday-Tunisia vs Mali @5:30pm-South Africa vs Namibia @11pmThursday’s results-Madagascar 1-0 Burundi-Senegal 0-1 Algeria-Kenya 3-2 TanzaniaComments Tags: AFCON 2019Group DHakim ZiyechHerve Renardivory coastJonathan KodjiaLitamunua KeimuineMax GradelMoroccoNamibiaNicholas PepeSouth Africatoplast_img read more
