Gunners head, Unai Emery, has been sacked as Head Coach. The news came in this morning after his home loss to the German side Eintracht Frankfurt. Unai Emery has been in the club for 18 months only for him to become the second to be sacked this month after Mauricio Pochettino. Emery was appointed as successor to Arsene Wenger in 2018 but has lasted just 18 months in the role.
Former Arsenal winger and member of ‘The Invincibles’, Freddie Ljungberg, will take charge of the first team while the club searches for a permanent replacement for Emery. Unai hs been unable to win his last seven games with club. This happens to be the worst in the club in a long time now. He has had series of draws in his last five games in the English Premier League the climax of it all came when he lost yesterday at home.
