Emery Sacked By Arsenal After Worst Run Of Results For 27 years

Arsenal have sacked manager Unai Emery after the club’s worst run of results since 1992.

Emery replaced Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2018 but has lasted just 18 months with the Emirates board pulling the trigger.

The Gunners were beaten 2-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday night, taking their winless run to seven matches and sealing Emery’s fate.

Arsenal return to action in the Premier League against Norwich on Sunday, languishing in eighth in the table, eight points adrift of the top four.

Emery insisted post-game on Thursday that his focus remained on the trip to Carrow Road.

But senior figures met on Friday to discuss the crisis and concluded it was time for him to depart.

A club  statement declared: “We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team.

Speaking on behalf of the Arsenal board and our owners Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, Josh Kroenke said: “Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand. We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success.

“The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required.
