Uni Emery has been dismissed this Friday as coach of Arsenal, a decision precipitated by the defeat of Thursday against Eintracht in the Europa League (1-2) and with which the gunners accumulate seven consecutive games without winning between all competitions.

"We announce that we have made the decision to separate from our coach Unai Emery and his team of assistants. The decision has been made because the results and the performances are not at the required level," the club said in a statement. On the same note, Arsenal has expressed its gratitude to the Spanish coach and his technical team for their "relentless efforts to make the club compete again at the level we all expect. We wish Unai and his team success in the future."

Freddie Ljungberg, Emery staff member, will take over the team on an interim basis and will sit on the bench this weekend at the home game against Norwich City on day 14 of the Premier.

The shadow of Wenger

Emery came to office May 3, 2018 replacing Arsene Wenger with the intention no longer to make the legend that Arsenal represents the figure of the French coach -immission impossible and not intended by the Fuenterrabía coach- , but with the premiere of a new stage in the London club, reset and open the windows to new methods, a change of air that will breathe renewed illusions to the proud swollen gunner. But the plan has been truncated in just 555 days, which Emery has remained on the Emirates bench; It is 7,339 days less than the legendary coach Gallo, who held the position for 7,894 days, that is, almost 22 years, from October 1, 1996 to May 13, 2018.

Fifth classified in his first season in the Premier, the Basque coach leaves Arsenal in eighth place in the English League with 18 points (19 of the leader and 8 of the Champions League positions) and eliminated from the Carabao Cup (fell to the Liverpool on penalties). In these almost 19 months since his arrival, Emery has not been able to get any title with the gunners, although he managed to qualify the team for the final of the Europa League 2019, which he lost to Chelsea.

The last defeat in the Europa League against Eintracht in Frankfurt at Emirates Stadium, where Aubameyang's initial goal was traced, has accelerated Emery's exit after a string of poor results in recent weeks. The skating against the German team forces Arsenal to seek the classification for sixteenths on the last day in the field of the Belgian Liege Standard.
