Arsenal have sacked head coach Unai Emery after the club’s worst run of results in twenty seven years!
Emery replaced Arsene Wenger in 2018, the club’s longest-serving manager, in terms of both length of tenure and number of games overseen who managed the club for twenty two years.
Arsenal are without a win in their last seven matches following last night’s 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.
Emery previously led Paris St-Germain to the French league title and won three Europa Leagues with Sevilla, was appointed Gunners boss in May 2018 after Wenger stood down. It was announced this morning that he has been replaced on a temporary basis by assistant and former Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg.
Arsenal football club have said “the decision had been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required”.
The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST) said Emery’s dismissal was “unfortunate but inevitable” and the “more difficult challenge is to recruit a suitable successor”.
Ljungberg took training on Friday and the Arsenal statement added: “We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward.
“The search for a new head coach is under way and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete.”
There are a number of names in hat including Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta, ex-Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe.
