Arsenal has parted-ways with Unai Emery after the former Paris Saint German manager failed to pick up a win in his last 7 games as Arsenal manager.
In less than 24 hours after claiming his side has improved despite losing to Frankfurt, Unai Emery has fired with the Gunners leaving the team in the hands of Freddie Ljungberg.
Unfortunately for Emery, his era at Arsenal had to be terminated after just 18 months as Arsene Wenger’s successor as he hands over to former Arsenal winger, Freddie Ljunberg.

Emery Sack Statement as written by Arsenal on their official website.
‘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.’

There are possible links connecting Napoli manager, Carlos Ancelotti to a Premier League return as he is considered one the potential Emery’s replacement.
Meanwhile, Carlos Ancelotti also has issues to settle back in Serie A as he is also struggling to win matches with his team sitting on the 7th position.
Another name on the list is former Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri who is currently without a job and most likely to be appointed as he is considered one best to deal with Arsenal’s defensive issues.
