Arsenal boss Emery: Toshack a big influence on career

Arsenal boss Unai Emery admits he looked up to John Toshack while working in Spain.

Emery was asked by arsenal.com about his biggest coaching influences.

"I learned with every coach I had in my career," Emery said. "For example, one who came to Spain and Real Sociedad, John Toshack. He's from Wales and really he transmitted to us a very deep culture from England in the football, in San Sebastian, in Real Sociedad.

"I learned a lot from him but I learned from a lot of coaches and we have very good examples with Guardiola, with Simeone, with Luis Enrique, with Jurgen Klopp.

"Really I watch a lot of work, of matches from other teams and other coaches to see how they can manage each moment and I learn and I use them to improve me."
