Venkatesham insists Arsenal happy with Emery

Arsenal managing director Vinai Venkatesham insists they're happy with the work of manager Unai Emery.

Despite their collapse in drawing at Watford, Venkatesham insists the board are happy with Emery's tenure so far.

"We are very comfortable with him and his coaching staff," Venkatesham said of Emery during an interview with the Strait Times.

“We think he is doing an excellent job, so we are very happy.

"When we appointed Unai, the team that worked on that looked at lots of different attributes that we felt we want to have in our head coach.

"One of them was, we want a coach who was willing, able, and had a track record of playing young players, because that is an important part of Arsenal Football Club."
