Arsenal has issued Unai Emery his marching orders following the team’s defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt. The Gunners suffered an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to the Bundesliga side at the Emirates on Thursday night – a loss which saw them miss out on the opportunity to seal qualification to the last 32 of the Europa League.
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.
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.
The search for a new head coach is underway and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete.
