Arsenal fans force out another manager – Unai Emery sacked

1 year ago

The Arsenal fans have struck again, forcing manager Unai Emery out of the club.

Arsenal releasing a statement on Friday morning saying that he had been sacked.

After forcing Arsene Wenger out in even more disgraceful circumstances, it remains to be seen who can satisfy their demands this time.

Mauricio Pochettino was sacked this month only months after a Champions League final appearance and still set to qualify from their CL group this time, having finished fourth last season.

Very similar for Unai Emery, finishing fifth last season in the Premier League and reaching the Europa League final only months ago, despite last night’ home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt they are still top of their qualifying group this time with one game to play.

Quite amazing how sympathetic the media are to the likes of Arsenal and Spurs fans not happy with their clubs/managers and agitating for change, yet Newcastle fans are somehow deluded when not wanting a relegation fight every season.

There are now only 11 Premier League clubs of the 17 that ended the 2018/19 (and didn’t get relegated) who still have the same manager.

The following having departed:

Chris Hughton (Brighton)

Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea)

Rafa Benitez (Newcastle United)

Javi Bracia (Watford)

Mauricio Pochettino (Spurs)

Unai Emery (Arsenal)

Official Arsenal statement:

‘We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team.

Speaking on behalf of the Arsenal board and our owners Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, Josh Kroenke said:

“Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand.

“We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success.”

The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required.

We have asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach. We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward.

The search for a new head coach is underway and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete.
