Arsenal Coach Set to be Fired Today

Struggling English Premier League giants, Arsenal are set to fire head coach Unai Emery according to various reports in England.

Last night’s defeat to the German side, Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League seems to have sealed the Spanish coach’s fate.

The Gunners are without a win in seven games. The team’s poor style of play has also been an issue of concern to both the supporters and even former players who have called for his sacking.

Arsenal board was due to meet on Friday morning to deliberate on his successor with his assistant, Freddie Ljungberg expected to succeed him on a temporary basis.

Emery joined Arsenal from PSG in mid-2018 as a replacement for Arsene Wenger. His first season with the club was relatively good as he led the club to the Europa League final where they lost to Chelsea.

The second season, however, has proved to be a difficult one as the Gunners are they lag in 8th position with 18 points from 13 league matches. They have won only four of their 13 league matches this campaign.
