Arsenal head coach Emery sacked as Ljungberg takes temporary charge, WHAT ABOUT SOLJSKAER...

Arsenal revealed that Unai Emery, head coach, was promptly relieved of his duties at the Emirates Stadium, with the Spanish manager spending 18 months on the north side of London.
On an interim basis, assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg will assume the duties of Emery.


In May 2018, the former Seville and PSG coach took over from the long-serving Arsene Wenger and went on to lead the Gunners to the final term of the Europa League, eventually losing out to eventual Chelsea champions.
Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney, David Luiz, Dani Ceballos, and exciting young forward Gabriel Martinelli joined the ranks for a summer of recruitment as Arsenal planned to push for a return to football in the Champions League.
A statement issued by the official website of the club reads: "We announce today that the decision was made to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team." The decision was made because the results and performances were not at the required level.
"We asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach. We have complete confidence in Freddie to take us forward." The search for a new head coach is underway and we will make a further announcement when the process is complete.
Non-executive director Josh Kroenke added: "Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who have been persistent in their efforts to get the club back to the level we all expect and demand." We wish Unai and his team success in the future.

Ljungberg is now facing a trip to relegation-battle Norwich on Sunday with the goal of halting the longest winless streak of Arsenal since February 1992 and trying to fight for a top-four finish.
The caretaker boss will be less worried as the Gunners sit at the top of Europa League Group F with a trip to Standard Liege – who were beaten 4-0 in the Emirates – the only remaining group stage game left to play.
