Unai Emery has reflected on his time at Arsenal, claiming that the club's supporters did not have the patience to endure the lengthy rebuild the Gunners' required.

Emery took over in north London following Arsene Wenger's departure in 2018 and lasted until November the following year, losing in the Europa League final in his only full season at the club.

“It was a difficult moment for any coach coming in, to establish yourself,” Emery told The Athletic.

“Certain players who had been important, but were not any longer, found that difficult to understand. The fans also found it difficult to understand that there needed to be an evolution. Changes were needed, and I began those changes.”
