Unai Emery didn’t enjoy the best of spells at Arsenal, facing various problems during his time at the club. From rumours of his poor relationship with a first team star to the horrible league form away from home, the Spaniard endured a pretty tough period in north London.
Many fans were glad to see the back of him with some supporters having celebrated the news of his sacking back in November. However, he has now lashed out at the outfit, claiming that even though the side wasn’t performing well under him, there hasn’t been much of an improvement since his departure from the Emirates Stadium (via France Football).
One fan labelled him as deluded, while another called his comments ‘ironic’.
The man needs help! He’s deluded!

Ironic considering how poor we were on our unbeaten run. We are playing much better football but the results just aren’t there.

However, former Arsenal player Emmanuel Petit seems to think otherwise, claiming he can see ‘different things in terms of intensity, togetherness and work rate off the ball’ under Mikel Arteta (via Paddy Power). It seems as though some fans aren’t too pleased with the former Paris Saint-Germain coach as they lambasted him for his comments.
Let’s take a look at a selection of tweets:
It will take time to clean up the mess you created at the club @UnaiEmery_
