Barely 24 hours after Arsenal suffered 2-1 loss to German club, Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League, the club’s management has terminated the appointment of its senior team manager, Unai Emery.

The 48-year-old tactician was sacked 18 months after his appointment as successor to the club longest serving manager, Arsene Wenger in 2018.

Former Arsenal winger and member of ‘The Invincibles’, Freddie Ljungberg, will take charge of the first team while the club searches for a permanent replacement for Emery.

Last night’s defeat marked Arsenal’s worst run of results since 1992 before appointing Wenger. And are without a win in their last seven matches following Thursday’s 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.

The Gunners have won only four of their 13 Premier League games this season and are now eighth, eight points adrift of the Champions League places.

Emery was appointed as successor to Arsene Wenger in 2018 but has lasted just 18 months in the role.
