I don’t buy the player power nonsense. Players have a input but it’s the philosophy of the head coach you adapt to. Otherwise why would clubs even bother recruiting Head Coaches or Coaches applying for roles at clubs?
Emery is the kind of person who will try his utmost best to attain the result he wants. When he was managing in Spain, he had issues with Isco and sold him on. At PSG it was Neymar but Neymar in the end was convinced not to leave, in the end Emery was gone.
Here at Arsenal it’s Ramsey and Ozil. We don’t know what is going on behind the scenes but one thing is for sure, Arsenal are in a very bad position financially. Not Sanctioning £250k-£300k wages for Ramsey to stay makes sense. Keeping Ozil with huge wages in the side is pointless and expensive, especially when he fails to deliver in big games and lacks consistency. With his age, he isn’t going to change his approach (pressing).
Emery is still pretty much dealing with a squad inherited by Wenger. So of course, we should give 2-3 transfer windows to implement the type of players that adapt to his style. If he fails to deliver any changes by next year, then I predict he will be sacked around March 2020. But I’m willing to be patient and see what he does. I just hope how he is dealing with Ramsey and Ozil, he knows what he is doing.
