Unai Emery dodged a question over the future of Jack Wilshere as he gave his first press conference as the new Arsenal boss.
Former PSG and Sevilla boss, Emery, was confirmed as the Gunners’ new head coach and Arsene Wenger’s successor on Wednesday morning.
“I’m honoured to be here,” Emery told journalists. “Thank you to the Kroenke family. We travelled to Atlanta for a meeting with the family, for me it was avery good meeting. Good conversation with him and his son.
“The connections were all together for the project. Also, thank you to the board. We had a meeting on Monday. They feel with their heart Arsenal.
“My English is not the best now. I want to make an effort to speak with you, to the supporters, to explain my ideas, my ambition and to explain I am very excited for this opportunity at a big club, with a grand stadium.
“I know all the players. I think all the players are very important.
“All the players I want to speak to individually. I want to speak to them face to face.
When asked about the future of Jack Wilshere, Emery added: “I don’t want to speak about individual players today.”
