Arsenal part with Unai Emery following abysmal results

Arsenal have parted company with manager Unai Emery.
The decision comes after their last night’s Europa League game at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, which saw the London side relinquish the first-half lead and eventually lost 2-1.
Arsenal, who are currently in the eighth place in the Premier League table, have not won in their last seven games in all competitions.
“The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required,” says a statement released on Friday by the club.
While Arsenal continue to search for a new manager, former midfielder Freddie Ljungberg, who was an assistant to the former manager, will take interim charge of the side ahead of Sunday’s game against Norwich City.
Emery’s cause was not helped by the controversy over Granit Xhaka. The Swiss international swore at Gunners fans when he was substituted against Crystal Palace last month. Emery responded by stripping Xhaka of the captaincy.
Also, Pepe, Arsenal’s record signing, has been a huge disappointment since his £72 million move from Lille last summer.
Under Emery, the club has spent at least £200 million.
Emery’s position began to look shaky when north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur sacked Mauricio Pochettino last week only months after he took the club to the Champions League final.
“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,” said Josh Kroenke while speaking on behalf of the Arsenal board and owners.
Emery was appointed Arsenal manager in the summer of 2018. The 48-year-old Spaniard replaced Arsene Wenger, who departed after 22-year at the North London club.
