Arsenal have parted ways with their 1 year and a half manager Unai Emery after a bad start to the campaign at the club and club legend Freddie Ljumberg has been appointed as the interim manager by the board as in the club statement.
In a Statement, Josh Kroenke thanked Unai Emery together with his staff for the unrelenting job in helping the club to where they are now.
He also stated “We have full confidence in Freddie Ljumberg to take the club to the next level”
Arsenal have endured their worst start to the footballing season since 1992, the club who recently parted ways with their longest serving manager Arsene Wenger will now look for a new manager.
Arsenal suffered a horrible defeat at the hands of Frankfurt yesterday in the Europa League. This was all in front of what looked like a very empty Emirates stadium.
Some of the fans who were seen on Arsenal Fans TV, had been heard talking about how they would not be wasting time going back to the Emirates stadium to watch any games as long as Emery was the manager.
The body language among the different players yesterday was also very revealing of what is currently happening at Arsenal.
Prior to the UEFA Europa League fixture, Arsenal had dropped two points against Southampton in the English Premier over the weekend which meant that they dropped further away from the top four positions and just ahead of fellow struggling giants Manchester United by one point.
Arsenal have now gone 8 games consecutively without a win in all competitions and this has raised so many eyebrows both from the fans and the board.
Arsenal have parted ways with their 1 year and a half manager Unai Emery after a bad start to the campaign at the club.
The only advantage for the club at the moment is the fact that they are already through to the next round of the Europa League but will now have to battle in the last game to decide who finished top between them and Frankfurt.
Yesterday marked the worst attendance registered in an Arsenal game at home. Not even Arsene Wenger registered such numbers.
During the entire course of the game, fans were booing the manager for what many have described as a lack of tactical awareness of his team and even when they have any tactics going on, they are negative tactics.
Arsenal have been reported to be looking at managers like Nigelsman, Mikel Arteta, Max Allegri, Nuno Esperito of Wolves among others to replace Unai Emery should he get the sack but for now it seems that the club is looking at having Ljumberg take over the reins as they take their time to get their right man.
