PSG boss Emery: This is what I think of Arsenal manager Wenger…

Unai Emery has revealed he is an enormous admirer of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

The Spaniard is preparing his PSG side for Tuesday night's Champions League clash with the Gunners in Paris and ahead to that encounter, spoke glowingly of the Frenchman who is in his 20th season with the North London club.

"I have been attending UEFA coach meetings for years now and I admire him," former Sevilla boss Emery said of Wenger.

"I'm 44, quite young, and trying to learn still - I've been speaking with the best coaches in Europe over that time and that includes Wenger.

"I have a lot of respect for his longevity. It's not very common - there was Sir Alex Ferguson - but we'd all like to be in a similar situation to Arsene Wenger."
