Gilberto: Emery faces tough task at Arsenal

Former Arsenal captain Gilberto Silva feels for Unai Emery over his team's slow season start.

Emery was appointed new Arsenal head coach in the summer after Arsene Wenger's exit.

Gilberto, who played for five years under Wenger including in the Invincibles season, says his former boss changed the face of the club.

And he reckons that makes the job even more tricky for Emery coming in.

“It's not easy, it's not going to be easy for him," Gilberto told Goal.

“It's a difficult task because he's going to replace a man who changed the history of the club."
