Arsenal director Unai Emery says gangster drama Peaky Blinders is helping him perfect his English.
The Spaniard says he watches the BBC series’ box set, set after WWI in Birmingham, to unwind.
But its Paris St-Germain boss has been proven tricky for by the West Midlands accent.
“It [Peaky Blinders] is great but it is hard [to know ] out of Birmingham. And it’s very aggressive. But it’s fine, it’s fine,” Emery said.
Emery who replaced Arsene Wenger in the Emirates Stadium in the summer, has additionally taken language courses to improve his English.
When he isn’t seeing TV thrillers he is seeing his passion – soccer.
The 47-year-old, who speaks in English in his news conferences, said:”In each livelihood, you have to feel passion for this so as to give it your best performance. Football is my passion.
“It’s my job, but I do not believe every day that it is my job, it’s my best hobby. I feel the passion. I’m doing my job with my desire.”
