He would have preferred life under Wenger to one under the new administration headed by Unai Emery. Hye however did not fail to admit that the era of the new boss is one of great vision.

“The easiest way for me would have been if Arsene had stayed,” he said.

“He would have trusted me and given me an easy way. But I am excited about the new stuff and the change in management.

“Unai Emery is a hard coach and is totally focused on what happens on the grass.

“That is his main focus – to get us back in the Champions League.

“It is exciting that I am part of that process.

“People want to see results but we need to make sure the change happens in the right way and not to rush it too much.”
