Unai Emery is ‘done at Arsenal’, says John Cross

Pressure mounts on emery after Arsenal let a lead slip at home to Wolves as winless Premier League run stretched to three games.


Arsenal is on the run of 11 points from their last nine games. The Club has been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and failed to win either of back-to-back home games with  Crystal Palace and Wolves.

Emery’s job in Arsenal is under threat with Jose Mourinho touted as a potential replacement.

“I think we have reached a point where Unai Emery is done.” John Cross said.

“They will not sack him until maybe Christmas or top four is out of sight, though”

“I just feel he was the wrong appointment. Its partly the language barrier but he is never connected with the fans. When he was unveiled, we spoke to him after the press conference and he interviewed in Spanish through a translator. His language was much more expensive, colorful and clear.”

“Eighteen months on, he still has not mastered English to any sort of acceptable level.”

“What are his tactics? Is he a pressing manager, is he counter-attack, is he possession? We just don’t know.”

“The club backed him in the summer to the hilt. And this squad is easily good enough to get in the top four. It will be a failure in Emery’s part if they don’t. There is easily enough good players there. You look at other clubs, Arsenal has a better squad than Leicester but Brendan Rodgers is a better manager who gets more out of his players.”

Mike McGrath conquers with Cross. He says Emery’s tenure at the Emirates was looking in danger. But still said, barely a year into his managerial career, he hoped the former PSG and Sevilla boss would get more time to turn things around.

“There are things he has done wrong as a manager.  The X factor-style captaincy was a sign of weakness. If you are a coach and you have the most highly paid player at the club, it’s your job to find a place for him.”

“But I would also say, I’m not sure about it being the end of the road. I would like to see him get given a bit more time. He has got the Premier League joint-top goal scorer from last season. He has just had a window where Arsenal fans were rejoicing and were happy with Luiz and Pepe. And behind the scenes, the new Spanish hierarchy is, I’m told, a respected outfit.”
