Former BBC journalist David Ornstein, who is now working with The Athletic, has shared what the club’s stance over Unai Emery is ahead of Thursday’s Europa League fixture.
The Gunners have struggled to compete for a place in the top four this season, on the back of a woeful campaign last term as they fell short of Champions League qualification for a third year in a row.
With Arsenal failing to win a game in the Premier League since early October, much of the club’s fan base has been left frustrated by current boss Unai Emery.
The Spaniard’s future at the Emirates stadium has remained in doubt, only a week after rivals Tottenham Hotspur sacked Mauricio Pochettino.
However, former BBC journalist David Ornstein has shed some light on the situation, revealing that the club called off training for Sunday and Monday, perhaps to calm down the current chaos.
With that said though, Ornstein claims Emery will be kept as manager of the team ahead of the clash with Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday.
