The Gunners boss was conducting his pre-match interview ahead of the away tie at Cardiff.
He was answering a question when a mobile that was put down on the table to record him started ringing.
The Spaniard looked puzzled for a minute before asking: “Is this yours, I don’t know who it is”.
Someone in the background shouted “It’s Ozil, is he playing tomorrow?”
Emery continued: “I am going to answer it.”
He then reveals the caller is a “John Spencer” – could it be the former Chelsea and Scotland striker himself?
He then asks if he can answer it, before those in the room shout their approval and burst into laughter.
And the 46-year-old didn’t disappoint.
He answered, saying: “OK, good morning, good afternoon.
“Hi, I am Unai Emery. How are you?
“We are working.”
The media were left howling in laughter before Emery shook his head and explained that “John Spencer” had hung up.
It brought some fun to what has being somewhat of a tricky start to life at The Emirates for Emery.
He lost the first two Premier League games, to Man City and Chelsea, before picking up a morale-boosting victory against West Ham.
