Fake journalist makes claim about Emery sacking which should not be believed

There is a fabricated report doing the rounds on social media about the possible sacking of Arsenal boss Unai Emery and surprisingly, many people are actually believing it. 

In the midst of Arsenal’s terrible form in the Premier League this season, there have been calls for the departure of Unai Emery, who replaced Arsene Wenger at the club in spring 2018.

However, the fact does remain that the Gunners’ hierarchy is yet to make any decision over the future of the Spaniard and until anything is formally announced, no one should be fooled.

A fake journalist account which has pretended to be an ITK and a Sky Sports reporter for a while, just claimed this today…

Sadly, some news sources and blogs have taken that seriously, but the account – which uses a photo of former Sky Sports presenter Andy Steggall as its avatar – is actually being treated like a legitimate source.

The holder of the imposter Twitter account claims to be a newsman called ‘Antonio Russo’, who is working for Sky Italy. But upon verification, there is no journalist with that name on the books of the popular news channel.
