Unai Emery’s position as Arsenal manager is under threat.
Supporters have been calling for the Spaniard’s head following the club’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Sheffield United on Monday night.
It was not just the result that disappointed, but Arsenal’s overall performance sparked outrage amongst the fanbase.
Despite dominating the ball with 69% of possession, the Gunners only managed three shots on target in the match.
Emery is currently failing to get the best out of £72m winger Nicolas Pepe and is refusing to play Mesut Ozil.
The board still are in agreement that it’s better to stick, rather than twist at this stage, but they do know who is next in line should they want to appoint a new manager.
Earlier this month, assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg emerged as a potential candidate.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein said in a Q and A: “Freddie is highly-rated by the players and staff.
Orstein believes the players respond well to Freddie Ljungberg
“And the logical feeling is he would take temporary charge if anything happened with Emery.
“He has ‘number one’ ambitions of his own and won’t hang around somewhere for too long if he doesn’t think the opportunity will come.”
Gooners, do you think that would be a good longterm move? Let us know in the comments…
