The Brazilian praised his former manager Unai Emery and believes he will be a success in North London
Paris Saint-Germain’s record signing and Brazil captain Neymar is confident that his former boss will achieve great things with Arsenal.
Unai Emery left PSG at the end of the 2017/18 season and is now Arsenal manager, replacing Arsene Wenger after 22 years at the helm.
Emery has begun to impose his style of play at Arsenal. The Gunners have started the season fairly well and are currently fifth in the table.
Neymar played under Emery for a season at PSG and has high hopes for the Spaniard as he aims to make his mark in the Premier League.
“Now it’s easy to say because Arsenal are playing really great football,” he said.
“They are coming from a great run in recent matches and everybody knows he’s a really great coach,” he told a news conference on Thursday, ahead of Brazil’s friendly against Uruguay at the Emirates.
Oncethe international break is over, Arsenal take on Bournemouth as they aim to get back to winning ways after three consecutive league draws.
That is followed by a Europa League match against Vorskla, a competition that Emery has had huge success in after winning it three years in a row while with Sevilla.
