Monchi is one of the contenders to become the next technical director of Arsenal.

Unai Emery was complimentary of Monchi when asked about his candidacy. 

“I worked very well with him in Sevilla for three and a half years and my relationship with him is good,” Emery said. “He is a good person and a good professional. I can say he is working in Roma and this issue is the club’s responsibility.”
