Arsenal sack Emery – Ljungberg in charge
Arsenal has sacked its manager Unai Emery.
The dismissal comes after a poor run of form, including a mid-week defeat in the Europa Cup.
It was that 2-1 loss – making it a run of seven failed games – that sealed his fate.
The North London club is eighth in the Premier League table and eight points adrift from the top four.
Arsenal play Norwich away at Carrow Road on Saturday.
It’s a game the Gunners should win given Norwich’s league position – just two points off bottom place.
While the board decides on a new boss, Arsenal will be managed by Freddie Ljungberg, a former player.
