HECTOR BELLERIN reckons Unai Emery has Arsenal “more organised” than under Arsene Wenger.
Bellerin, 23, says his team-mates had more freedom under Wenger and that the new regime is taking some getting used to.
He revealed: “The coaches have different philosophies, they are completely different. Arsene Wenger was a manager that left a lot of inspiration with the players.
“He gave you a lot of freedom and now Unai Emery is a bit more tactical, more organised on the pitch.
“Training is way different, we are working on different things that we didn’t use to with the [previous] boss.
“It’s different philosophies that have worked for them both of them and for us as players it’s just about replicating what they want on the pitch.
“We are getting used to it, we are working really hard to understand the way they want to train and the way they want is to play.
“I think everyone is doing really well and everyone is excited. We are all working hard because everyone wants a spot in the starting XI.”
Emery’s side take on Chelsea in Dublin tonight, fresh from thrashing an under-strength Paris Saint-Germain side 5-1 in Singapore on Saturday.
And ahead of the International Champions Cup clash at the Aviva, Bellerin’s mood is positive as he looks forward to a new season under a new manager for the first time as a professional.
“I think he [Emery] is a great coach. He has great experience in Spain and he’s always played at the top level, even with teams that didn’t have the best players. He’s made them very competitive.
“It’s been very different for everyone [this summer].
“Mr Wenger had been at the club for 22 years so obviously a lot of things have changed.”
