Take-down Man City: Emery issues first order to Iwobi & co.

A strange clause in Unai Emery's contract with North London outfit Arsenal has been leaked, days after the Spaniard was confirmed as Arsene Wenger's successor.

Emery was named Arsenal’s head coach on a three-year deal last week following Arsene Wenger's departure after 22-years of managing the club.

According to The Times, Emery’s contract at Arsenal contains a break clause that can be triggered after two seasons. The report says Arsenal can invoke the clause without paying up the full value of his contract.

The 46-year old manager previously spent three seasons with Sevilla, leading them to an unprecedented three consecutive Europa League titles, establishing the club as a major force in the Spanish league.

He started his coaching career at Lorca Deportiva in 2005 after playing mostly in the Spanish second division. He went on to coach Almeria, Valencia and Spartak Moscow before joining Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain.
