Arsenal lost 1-2 to Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates in that was already billed as Unai Emery’s last match. Now, it’s just a matter of time before the Spaniard gets sacked.
With seven games without a victory, Arsenal are enduring their worst winless streak since February 1992 — they haven’t won since October 24. The Gunners never experienced such a poor run across 1,235 games under Arsene Wenger.
For Unai Emery, the end of the road is near
According to Metro, the boss officially lost the dressing room after the Gunners tied relegation-bound Southhampton. Emery denied the rumors that his squad has lost faith in him.
“Yes of course. They show that,” said Emery.
“As a coach each moment in my career is difficult. This is a very good but very hard job.”
“When you are winning you feel the support for everybody. I believe in us, I believe in the players. I know I am going to work very hard to come back to the performance.”
With marquee players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and strike partner Alexandre Lacazette refusing to sign new contracts, the call for Emery’s exit is growing louder and louder.
But the under-fire manager wasn’t the only one to face defeat in the Europa League today. Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also on the hot seat after losing 2-1 to Astana.
Odds are high that both managers get the sack before Christmas.
