Arsenal staff expect Unai Emery sack announcement
Arsenal boss Unai Emery’s time in north London could be up. According to a report, staff at the north London giants are expecting a sack announcement in the foreseeable future.
The Spaniard’s reign in north London has taken a turn for the worse in recent times, with the club failing to win any of their last six matches across all competitions.
Publicly, the Gunners have insisted they’re very much behind the 48-year-old, who was appointed as Arsene Wenger’s replacement in the summer of 2018.
However, Arsenal are a team in chaos and Emery has found his stock plummeting among fans amid their torrid run.
And Goal say staff at the club believe it’s a matter of when, and not if, the Arsenal manager will lose his job.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang told to quit
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can’t be expected to stay at Arsenal with the club struggling to challenge for Champions League football, according to former Premier League star Clinton Morrison.
“Do you blame him?” the former Crystal Palace man asked about Aubameyang’s alleged decision to shelve contract talks during an appearance on talkSPORT.
“He’s gone to Arsenal thinking they’re going to challenge for the title, but they’re not challenging for the title – I think they’ll struggle to finish in the top four!
“He’s gone there to win trophies, but what will they win this season? He’s gone there to play Champions League football and he might not even do that!
“He’s delivering on the pitch, he’s scoring goals week-in week-out, but the club is not living up to his expectations.
“I think Arsenal are at a standstill. They haven’t progressed and are still doing what they were doing under Arsene Wenger.
“A lot of people were moaning, ‘Get Wenger out’, but he was successful, he was a winner!
“Can Unai Emery really motivate these players? He has not convinced me so far at Arsenal.”
