Apparently it’s not a good time of year to be a soccer manager or head coach in London. After Tottenham moved on from Mauricio Pochettino last week to hire Jose Mourinho, rivals Arsenal have decided to make a change on Friday as well. That means that Unai Emery, who had been at the helm for just over a year now, was let go following a catastrophic run of games.
The Gunners, as they are known, went on their worst run in 27 years in recent weeks, failing to win any of their last seven games. Right now, they have a search going on for the new man, but until he is found it will be club legend Freddie Ljunberg taking over.
