Arsenal officially sacks Spanish manager Unai Emery

Spanish football manager Unai Emery has been officially sacked by Arsenal, after seeing the club to their worst run since 1992.

The North London club have failed to win any of their last seven games and recently succumbed to a 2-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium against German club Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.

Since the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, the English club has been able to register four wins in 13 Premier League matches and are currently sitting at the eight position with eight points away from the fourth position.

Emery, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium during the summer transfer window in 2018, was meant to succeed Arsene Wenger, who spent 22 years with the club before leaving.

The 48-year-old manager was only in charge of the club for 18 months despite his two-year contract signed when he joined. The Gunners official website claims that the Spaniard was unable to meet with the level required.

However, former Arsenal winger and legend Freddie Ljunberg will be taking over the first team managerial needs as an interim manager, as the club continues to search for a potential replacement for Emery.

The Gunners director Josh Kroenke said via Sky Sports: “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.”
