Arsenal fans have been lambasting manager Unai Emery after news of Lucas Torreira’s future at the club emerged yesterday.
It was being reported by Tuttomercatoweb that the Uruguayan midfielder will hold talks with the Basque-born manager over his role at the club after being left dissatisfied.
The Italian publication also revealed that Torreira could leave in January, leaving the Gunners in a potentially perilous position after it emerged Granit Xhaka could also leave in the winter window (via The Times).
Torreira has endured a strange season with the north London giants so far this campaign, starting 10 of his 14 games as a central midfielder despite generally playing in a more defensive-minded role last year.
However, former Gunner Paul Merson (Sky Sports via football.london), voiced his doubts over Emery’s own future if the club’s bad form continued against Leicester City this Saturday.
Fans sided with their diminutive midfielder as they took to Twitter to blast Emery for his treatment of Torreira.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Emery is such poison man just get him out man

Emery has blood on his hands.

As a DM he is amazing, but to be honest playing as a B2B and a No.10 must be making him think twice about Arsenal. The only thing that can save him is a new manager who will play him in his correct position. Ten Haag/Freddie/Arteta will rejuvenate him.

That would be disgraceful. Clearly one of our best players being misused by our clown of a manager

Only thing emery is successful at is alienating our players

Emery is destroying this club faster than I thought.
