EPL: Unai Emery compares self with Guardiola ahead of Arsenal clash with Man City




Arsenal coach, Unai Emery has disclosed that his Manchester City counterpart, Pep Guardiola was a ‘better’ manager than him.

According to Sportmole, Emery stated this on Friday ahead of his side’s clash with City on Sunday evening in the Premier League at the Emirate Stadium.

The 46-year-old knows the City boss well from their time in La Liga, where he failed to win any of their 10 meetings as manager of Valencia and Sevilla.

“I am 46, he is 47 and he started his career as a player, bigger than me,” Emery said, adding that, “His career as a coach is also bigger than mine.

“We started our careers as coaches at maybe the same kind of time and his career, statistically, is better than me also but I like more playing against him because it demands more from the preparation, to try to win against his teams.

“When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare for this match.”
