Arsenal have axed manager Unai Emery after last night’s Europa league loss to Eintracht Frankfurt.
After a long spell of poor form, Arsenal’s 2-1 Europa League loss to Eintracht Frankfurt was the final straw for club chiefs, culminating in the club’s worst run of results for 27 years.
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, 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.
“We have asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach. We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward.”
