EPL: Van Persie questions Unai Emery’s style at Arsenal

Former Arsenal striker, Robin van Persie, has slammed manager Unai Emery, for adapting his line-up and tactics too much.


Emery is notorious for chopping and changing his side to suit different challenges, even making triple substitutions mid-match.

It is different from Arsene Wenger’s time, who somewhat rigidly stuck to his philosophy even when it wasn’t working.

But Van Persie feels Emery’s approach is not the answer.

Asked what he makes of the current Arsenal team, Van Persie told BT Sport: “It’s difficult to say because if you look at the teams under Wenger, Wenger’s teams always used to play from his philosophy.

“You can see the same happening now with Jurgen Klopp and the same with Pep Guardiola at Liverpool and Manchester City.

“But with Emery I don’t really see his philosophy. What is his philosophy? He’s changing a lot, he’s changing tactics a lot.

“It looks to me like he’s changing his playing style based on the opponent, and I think it does show real strength if you, from the basis, go out with your own strengths.”
