Emery reacts to angry Lacazette incident on Saturday
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has spoken on the incident on the sidelines which involved Alexandre Lacazette during Saturday’s game against Burnley.
The new Arsenal boss has come to the club with a much different approach from the man whom he replaced, Arsene Wenger.
Emery has not been afraid to make a number of controversial decisions with some fans questioning his moves while others praise him for being bold.
On Saturday, the Gunners boss decided to hand Alexandre Lacazette a rare start in the Premier League after dropping the Frenchman in the last couple of games.
However, Emery still managed to anger Lacazette in the end as he substituted the striker in the second half.
The ex-Lyon star showed his frustration as he walked towards the bench with the cameras spotting him throw his gloves away in anger.
Lacazette moved to Arsenal just over a year ago but his reaction could bring back rumours of him wanting to end his career at the Emirates stadium in search of more playing time.
When asked about the incident on Saturday, Emery actually had some praise for the striker.
“I didn’t see that, but I think he is happy with our victory. Only he wanted to score and when a striker doesn’t score, I like that he can be angry with his situation.” Emery said after the game
“But he worked very well today. For me, the last matches are the best he has played. He is coming back as the best Lacazette to help us.”
