Emery sacked

Arsenal would part ways with Unai Emery on Friday the 29th of November.

After a poor showing vs Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday evening, which Arsenal lost 2-1, the Gunners are now seven games without a win across all competitions, a stat which the Arsenal hierarchy seemingly weren’t too keen on.

After sacking Emery, the North London outfit confirmed that Freddie Ljungberg would be made interim boss whilst they search for Emery’s successor.

Ljungberg would post on message on social media shortly after being named interim boss.

Now, on Saturday, the Gunners have confirmed via their official Twitter account that Arsenal academy manager Per Mertesacker will be supporting Ljungberg in the short-term.

Norwich vs Arsenal

As mentioned in Arsenal’s tweet, Mertesacker will be in the dugout on Sunday when Arsenal travel to Norwich.

Ljungberg probably couldn’t have asked for a better first game in charge.

The Canaries are 18th in the Premier League and began the weekend with the second-worst defensive record in the English top-flight this season.

As for Arsenal, they started Saturday 8th in the league with an eight-point gap open between themselves and 4th place Chelsea.
