Emery was speaking to the press following his side's 1-1 UEFA Europa League draw with Vitoria Guimaraes when he gave a defiant four-word answer to speculation of Mourinho's impending arrival at the Emirates.

"I am the coach," Emery said, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Spaniard also shared his disappointment at Arsenal's failure to claim all three points against their Portuguese opponents, but maintained his side's ambition to remain competitive in the tournament.

"In this competition, our objective is to be first in the group," the former Paris Saint-Germain boss added.  

"We are going to play the next two matches to make sure we're in that position. Now we're going to prepare for a new competition.

"We worked, we played, fighting against a team with strong organisation. When we did the most difficult, score one goal, they drew at the end.

"It's a little disappointing for that result. We're first in the group, we want to make sure of that position in the next matches."
