Arsenal sacks Unai Emery, sorts for Replacement

PublishedBy: in SportNovember 29, 2019


Arsenal have sacked manager Unai Emery after a tumultuous start to the 2019/20 season.

The Gunners are languishing in eighth place in the Premier League table and are already eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and 19 behind leaders Liverpool after just 13 games.

Arsenal have only managed four wins in the Premier League so far, while they also exited the Carabao Cup on penalties against Liverpool.

Things haven’t been much easier off the pitch, either, with Grant Xhaka clashing with Arsenal fans only weeks after being named club captain.

The final nail in Emery’s coffin was a 2-1 home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League, capping off a winless November across all competitions – drawing three and losing twice. It also extended the Gunners’ winless streak to seven games, last winning 3-2 against Vitoria on October 24.

As a result, the Spaniard’s 78-game spell at the Emirates has come to an end with a record of 43 wins, 16 draws and 19 defeats, including a 4-1 loss to Chelsea in last season’s Europa League final.

Arsenal announced the news with a statement on their official website which read: “We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team.

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

The Gunners also provided a statement from Josh Kroenke, on behalf of the Arsenal board.

“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,” Kroenke said.

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

Freddie Ljungberg will replace Emery as interim head coach, starting with the Gunners’ trip to Norwich City on Sunday. Arsenal confirmed they have stared their search for a new permanent manager and will comment further when that process is complete.
