Arsenal manager, Unai Emery plans to take his team to Norwich despite call for his sack after a woeful Europa League match against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday at Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery’s pressure increased after Arsenal’s humiliating 2-1 home lose to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night.
According to Daily Mirror, Arsenal management board will have an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss the Spaniard’s future as manager in the club which might possibly result to his sacking.
But Emery is confident he will take his team to Carrie Road to play against Norwich City on Sunday despite being booed by fans calling for his sack in a half empty Emirates stadium.
Asked about the prospect of being fired after the match, Emery responded, “I’ll analyse the match, and I’m thinking about the next match.”
“We lost here, but for the Europa League, we have the last match to achieve [topping the group].” He said in a press interview.
“We showed an improvement in the first-half and we had a lot of opportunities to score, but we did not take them.
“The first five or 10 minutes of the second half were good, but then we lost control for 15 minutes, and we could not change the result.
“We tried to come back but we did not create any big opportunities to score.
“The fans were angry, they were disappointed.
“We lost control of the game in 15 minutes, and they achieved the result in that period.
“I am being positive, but above all realistic.
“We lost a very good opportunity to win the game tonight, but we improved from the last match here.
“We are first in the table, and lost the opportunity to progress tonight, but we will take another in Liege.
“The first thing to recover confidence is to win. This is the first match we lost at home.” He added.
