Ex Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger feels new coach, Unai Emery is presently proving how good he was at the club when he was still the manager.
Wenger said it is clear now that he did not fail because Top four finishes are now celebrated in several clubs.
The Frenchman said expectations have now been reduced at the London club and it shows how successful he was when he was coach at the London club.
His words, “Every year people want something more from you. I experienced that at Arsenal.
“We were 20 consecutive years in the top four but in the end it was not enough anymore.
“Today if you get into the Champions League people are very happy.
“That happened to [Mauricio] Pochettino. Once you’re somewhere four or five years, no matter how good a job you have done, you have to show people you can give even more. He’s at that stage.”
On Tottenham, “When I played them two or three years ago, they looked like a young, hungry team who had found good strengths, good core of the team with people who were together, growing inside the club,” Wenger said of north London neighbours.
“They expressed that hunger and players from outside were vital, like [Christian] Eriksen. Today, you don’t feel exactly the same chemistry, and a player like Eriksen is a bit sidelined because it looks like he doesn’t want to commit his future to the club.
“Modern life is down to small margins, and these small margins at the moment are not in their favour. Will they get that back?”
