Neymar is backing Unai Emery to be a big hit at Arsenal following his appointment at The Emirates.

The Spanish manager has been getting used to life at the north London club after he was brought in as Arsene Wenger’s replacement at The Emirates back in May.

Emery’s side suffered a disappointing start to the Premier League season as they were beaten by Manchester City and Chelsea FC in consecutive games.

However, the Gunners have since bounced back and they are unbeaten in the Premier League since those defeats.

Arsenal currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League table eight points behind leaders Manchester City as Emery looks to try and guide the Gunners back into the top four this season.

Neymar played under Emery at Paris Saint-Germain, and the Brazilian superstar believes that the Spanish boss will be able to get the best out of the Gunners.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Neymar said: “Now it’s easy to say because Arsenal are playing really great football.

“They are coming from a great run in recent matches and everybody knows he’s a really great coach.

“We know about their quality and I was really happy to work with him because he’s a really hard working guy.

“He really wanted to coach us and really wanted to study about football.

“I think he will bring good things for Arsenal, which is really is a really huge and important club here in England. I wish him luck.”

Arsenal will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Bournemouth away from home on Sunday 25 November.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
