Arsenal supporters now want the club to follow in Spurs’ example and fire coach Unai Emery with the Gunners currently struggling in the English Premier League.
The Spanish tactician is currently under pressure after a run of four league matches without a win. Sixth-placed Arsenal has managed just four wins in 12 league assignments this season. Their failure to protect leads is another concern for the fans.
The club’s fortunes haven’t changed much since Arsene Wenger was fired last year and replaced with Emery. The team failed to secure Champions League football last season after finishing below the top four positions. They further suffered an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Chelsea in the Europa League final.
A defiant Unai Emery has however remained adamant that he can turn the team’s fortunes around. The team’s last defeat to Leicester City further piled pressure on him and the club hierarchy is said to be concerned with the poor run.
Club legends Ian Wright and Emmanuel Petit have also joined those asking for the coach’s firing. Wright said the same is not progressing under the former PSG coach while Petit believes Patrick Vieira or Thierry Henry is better placed to lead the club forward.
On Tuesday, Arsenal arch-rivals Spurs fired their coach Pochettino and now Arsenal fans want to same fate to befell the Europa League-winning coach.

Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked by Tottenham.
Arsenal should sack Unai Emery, and go for Pochettino.

@Arsenal when are you sacking Unai Emery? Other sensible clubs are even sacking their half decent manager. We have a mannequin as manager and you have refused to sack him.
