Unai Emery: How fans reacted to sack of Arsenal coach
A cross-section of Arsenal Football fans have reacted to the sacking of coach Unai Emery after 18 months.
The decision to dismiss Emery was taken less than 12 hours after the Gunners lost 2-1 to Frankfurt in the Europa League.
Freddie Ljunberg was appointed to take over on an interim basis.
Speaking on behalf of the Arsenal board and owners Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, Josh Kroenke had 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.”
However, fans expressed their divergent opinions on the sack of the Spaniard.
