Reliable journalist Ornstein reveals Arsenal’s expected decision on Emery after Enrique claim
Highly-reliable journalist David Ornstein has revealed the decision that Arsenal have made over the future of Unai Emery, following a claim by El Confidencial’s Kike Marin that the club had contacted former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique over replacing the current manager.
The Gunners decided to hire Unai Emery as the man to replace Arsene Wenger in May last year, following the departure of the Frenchman, who left as the most successful manager in the club’s long history.
Emery failed to secure the club’s main target of qualifying for the Champions League in his first season at the Emirates stadium, and after four months into his second campaign, not much progress has been made.
Following the defeat to Leicester City on Saturday, the Gunners are nine points behind the Foxes and Chelsea in the race for a top four finish.
Thus, there have been rumours about the club beginning a pursuit of former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique to replace Emery.
However, reliable journalist David Ornstein has revealed the club has made a firm decision on the current manager’s future and that is to keep him for the rest of the season.
Indeed, the claim by Ornstein is suggesting that the club’s hierarchy will wait until next summer to review Emery’s progress as manager.
Arsenal bosses “100%” behind Unai Emery, deny considering change or talking to candidates, plan to review in summer. Kroenkes + execs offering full support, won’t react to “noise”, feel results will improve atmos & think #AFC on right path. @TheAthleticUK: https://t.co/rXXrMAtd9a
