Arsenal have expectedly relieved Unai Emery of his duties shortly after his 18-month reign hit a nadir on Thursday night with a 2-1 home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in front of one of the lowest crowds in the history of the Emirates Stadium.
Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed as caretaker, starting with Sunday’s trip to Norwich.
The Gunners have endured their worst run of form since 1992 and are winless in seven games. The patience of the Arsenal hierarchy has vanished. Fans are united in their demand for him to go. Players are bemused by his tactics.
An announcement from the Emirates Stadium came Thursday.
