Arsenal manager Unai Emery is a man under pressure at the moment.
The club are on a poor run and have won just two of their last 10 Premier League games.
They also exited the Carabao Cup at the hands of Liverpool, and fans haven’t liked what they have seen on the pitch in terms of style.
The manager’s communication and leadership has been criticised, but it is thought the Spaniard has the backing of his superiors despite the recent struggles.
One man who believes he is still the right man to take the club forwards, is someone who has been touted as a possible replacement for Emery – former captain and Invincible Patrick Vieira.
The current Nice manager believes the ex-Paris Saint-Germain boss needs time and support.
He said (Goal): “They have a coach who is qualified and who works well. When a club is having a difficult time, it’s important to be united. I think he has enough experience to get them through this difficult spell.
“We have to get behind him and give him time to change things. I am not sure a change of manager will fix the problems.”
TBR’s view – Emery should be on borrowed time
Emery needs to turn things around at Arsenal and quickly.
He may have had the backing of his superiors, but the problems extend beyond just results.
Emery needs to work to get the fans back onside, or risk toxicity clouding the Emirates once again.
