Bilyaletdinov insists ex-Arsenal boss Emery a 'great coach'

Former Everton midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov insists Unai Emery is a top coach.

Bilyaletdinov worked with the sacked Arsenal boss at Spartak Moscow.

“Emery was a great coach," said Bilyaletdinov to evertonfc.com.

“He really wanted us to play in a Spanish style, it was good football but we needed time to adapt.
