Asked to define the man he replaced, Emery reportedly told Marca: ‘'Before Wenger came, Arsenal celebrated 1-0 and were based on defensive solidity.

"With Arsene, joy came from attacking, with players of good standing. And the perfect combination was the Invincibles.
"But over time, only technical quality and offensive freedom were taken care of, losing the defensive structure," the Spaniard added.

Wenger ended his 22-year spell last season, with Emery replacing him at the helm of affairs at Emirates.

Despite his otherwise successful tenure at the London club, many contended Wenger's long stay ended up tarnishing his impressive reign.

The last of Wenger’s three Premier League titles came in 2003/04, claiming only FA Cup trophies and Community Shield titles in subsequent years.
