Unai Emery has put his focus on fixing Arsenal’s ‘ridiculous’ defence on the training ground.
That is according to Arsenal’s director of high-performance Darren Burgess.
And Burgess has revealed Emery has worked on making Arsenal more organised on the training ground.
He told Fox Sports: “Most people recognised that our defence was poor last season we conceded a ridiculous number of goals around 50 or something which Arsenal hadn’t done in maybe 15 years so one thing he’s been working on unsurprisingly is making the team a bit more solid and better organised in that area.
“Obviously it remains to be seen how successful that is but that’s an area he’s focused on.
“He’s very particular on player positioning depending on where the ball is in certain areas of the pitch.”
