AFTER just 18 months on the job Arsenal have fired Unai Emery.
He was appointed the Gunners manager in May 2018 after stints at Paris St-Germain where he won the French league title and three Europa Leagues with Sevilla.
The Spaniard had replaced Arsene Wenger.
Emery has been replaced by assistant and former Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg on a temporarily basis until a replace could be found.
Arsenal said the decision had been “taken due to results and performances not being at the level required”.
The Gunners have not won in seven games and lost 2-1 at home on Thursday to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.
It is their worst run without a victory since February 1992, which was eight games under George Graham and are without a Premier League victory since October 6 and eight points off the top four.
