Arsenal ex-star,Robert Pires, has expressed satisfaction with the club’s improved performances under Unai Emery and believes they both win Europa League title and finish in the top four as well.
Arsenal went back up into fourth place after they defeated Manchester United 2-0 at Emirate stadium and are just one point behind third-placed Tottenham on the table.
Emery’s men also did wonders when they overturned a 3-1 deficit against Rennes, to face Napoli in the Europa League quarter-finals.
This has prompted Pires’s well wishes when he spoke with ESPN.;
”I think Unai Emery is a good manager, he’s won some titles with Sevilla, with Paris Saint-Germain.
”For the end of the season, he has two targets: to reach the top four and – why not – to win the Europa League competition.
”That’s why Arsenal are in a very good way and that’s why I’m very confident and very positive always when I talk about Arsenal.
”I think they can reach both targets. Of course it will be very difficult, but the squad is very good, we have good quality.
”All the players now they are very confident, especially Mesut Ozil – because he is one of the best players in the Premier League.
So that’s why Unai Emery, the squad, they are very confident for the two targets: the top four and why not lift the [Europa League] trophy’.
