Alexandre Lacazette says there are ‘big differences’ between current boss Unai Emery and former manager Arsene Wenger.
Emery succeeded Wenger as the man in charge at the Emirates Stadium during the summer and, after starting his reign with back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, he was able to celebrate his first victory following Saturday’s 3-1 triumph over West Ham.
Wenger was in charge of Arsenal for 22 years before his departure so everyone connected with the club is still getting used to a new man at the helm and France international Lacazette has acknowledged there are big differences between the two coaches.
“There is a lot of difference under the new manager,” Lacazette said. “You can’t really compare the two coaches – they are their own men when it comes to football.
“Even if the aim is still to play and hurt the opposition with the ball, there are some big differences.”
Lacazette came on as a substitute during Saturday’s victory over West Ham with the scores at 1-1 and he has praised Emery for installing belief that he could have an impact on the contest.
“I knew I could help the team,” he added. “What I do is different to everyone else. I just want to play and help my team all the time.
“The manager just told me to play my game and said we will win if I play well.”
