Benefited and harmed by the march of Unai Emery

The coach has been fired. Özil lived in ostracism and Xhaka had lost the bracelet. Not even Aubameyang, his best player, was with the coach.


Uni Emery has ceased to be Arsenal coach this Friday. That of Hondarribia after less than two years of his arrival in which he has weighed the bad results too much in this start in the second season, especially, after a streak of seven games without knowing the victory.

The hitherto second coach, Freddie Ljunberg, becomes interim first and the candidate who arrives at the Emirates will find a squad with several fronts open in the standings, where he is eighth to eight points in the Champions area.

In the north of London, several are the beneficiaries and also those harmed with their departure.

Beneficiaries: Özil, Aubameyang, Xhaka, Mustafi ...

With the departure of Unai Emery, there will be two players who will be able to fight again for their position: Mustafi and Mesut Özil. The German case was one of the most flagrant. Several seasons ago he arrived as a star and in this he lived in ostracism. The 11, considered one of the best in the squad, will have to win the new coach just like Mustafi, from whom Unai Emery publicly and privately requested his departure.

Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka are also on this list. The striker is the top scorer of the team, the first captain and the one who has played the most minutes but showed his dissatisfaction with Emery's work on several occasions through social networks just like his forward teammate, Lacazette.

The case of the Swiss is the most striking. After facing the stands he lost the captaincy and, although he received public support from the Spanish, if he rebelled against his recommendation by half-apologizing to the fans. Its situation is, without a doubt, the most thorny that will have to handle the next one that arrives to occupy the bench of the Emirates Stadium.

Nicolas Pepe seems to be another beneficiary. Although Emery gave him confidence and minutes the most expensive signing of the summer has not found its level. The Mantes-la-Jolie starts from scratch and is expected to be one that improves after the change. There is a lot of hope in him.

Injured: Guendouzi, Willock, Martinelli ...

Among those harmed by Emery's departure are the youngest. Guendouzi was one of the bets with the entry of Unai from unknown to player with some weight in the rotation.

This year, the discoveries have been Gabriel Martinelli and Willock. The Brazilian arrived from Ituano and has been one of the revelations of the season in the Europa League where he has three goals and two assists in five games. Joe Willock is the ninth player on Unai's squad. Just arrived from the quarry had prominence and responded even with four goals.

Now, almost everyone will start from scratch in search of minutes in the eleven with the new coach. Opportunities will be for everyone on an English calendar that is overloaded on Christmas dates.
