The five keys to the dismissal of Unai Emery from Arsenal

The 'gunner' directive made the decision to replace the Spanish coach after the bad results harvested at this start of the season in the Premier.


Unai Emery's stage in England has come to an end. The sports management of Arsenal, with the Spanish Raúl Sanllehi and Edu Gaspar in command, has made the decision to do without the Basque after the bad start of the season in the Premier League. A little over a year ago, Emery took the reins of the North London club, being the riskiest decision of his entire sports career because he was going to replace a respected and beloved figure by the vast majority of the fans, we talk about Arsène Wenger The club went from day to night because the styles of these two coaches are totally opposite. Despite this difference, the satisfactory results came very soon with a winning streak of twenty-two matches without knowing defeat in all competitions. Even reaching the final of the Europa League but the season ended without a prize, that is, without reaching the Champions League because the gunners lost the final of the Europa League against Chelsea.

In this second season, Arsenal has not started the Premier very well being its worst start since the 1982-83 football course. At the moment it is eight points from the Champions League, for this and other reasons there is the farewell of Unai Emery of Arsenal:

1. Bad results

The club is experiencing its worst start of the last thirty years and currently has five games without knowing the victory. It occupies the eighth place and is eight points from the Champions positions. The investment last summer causes the club to need the income granted by the classification to the most important competition in Europe at club level. In addition, if this objective is not achieved, it would cause the march of some of its stars (Aubameyang and Lacazette). The data has not been hopeful with the Basque coach on the bench because Arsenal is the third team that receives the most shots only behind Norwich City and Aston Villa, the first of them in relegation positions, and the second touching the red lantern

2. Outside Champions

As it is well indicated in the first point, the club needs to enter the Champions League after three seasons without qualifying in the top four, one with Wenger and two with Unai Emery. The Alsatian coach managed to be among the first four for twenty years, he did not succeed in his farewell year. Not for prestige but rather for the economy of the club. Arsenal sailed through the desert in terms of transfer issues when it came from Highbury to the Emirates. A difficult situation that was sustained thanks to the income granted to qualify for Champions. Now, after three courses without achieving it, he cannot go another year without entering because he could see how his players request to leave. Emery had it at his fingertips the previous campaign but spent his only bullet with the Europa League and shot him through the butt. In this course we are seeing how the team, despite the defeat against the Eintracht in Frankfurt, is doing well in Europe but in its domestic competition it is a disaster. Faced with this problem, the board of directors did not want to put up with the Spaniard on the bench and decided to look for an alternative with a new technician, for now it will be Ljungberg as interim coach.

3. There is no definite style

In this year and a half, the Basque coach has not been able to establish a game idea, that is, a solid structure where to create the project of this team. In each encounter we can observe different game models where absolute chaos predominates, especially in defense. Today, the weakest area is still the defensive line where each member has failed to interpret what their coach was asking for and, therefore, it is normal to see these disruptions during several chances of the matches. David Luiz and Sokratis do not give security, they have not been able to impose a hierarchy and their shortcomings are protected by the actions of the strikers.

4. Topic Xhaka

Uni Emery failed to handle all the controversy that engulfed Granit Xhaka, to such an extent that he removed the captaincy and defected him for a month. Everything came preceded by the encounter of the Swiss with his hobby when he was replaced in the match of day 10 in front of the Crystal Palace. The fans stopped seeing the player in the calls and on the pitch. Aubameyang took over the bracelet and part of the locker room began to divide at this decision. The Basque coach was not able to calm the waters inside the locker room, even with his hobby. Finally, the midfielder played against Eintracht in the Europa League match last Thursday.

5. Distance from the fans

The poor results and the controversy with Xhaka caused the fans to raise their voice towards their coach. “Emery out, no tactics, no formation. Nowhere to hide ”, began to be read every weekend in the Emirates. The problems were joined by Unai Emery, who was already alone in the club, and failed to reverse the situation.
