Robert Pires says Arsenal are in’big Problem’ under Unai Emery – and Cautioned the Gunners risk losing their star players or even have to finish in the top four.
Arsenal Legend Pires worries that the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette will be off in the summer if the side of Emery don’t claw their way back.
The Gunners are now eight points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea, following Saturday’s disappointing 2-2 draw against Southampton extended Arsenal’s winless run to five games in the Premier League – and six in all competitions.
The result at the Emirates could have been worse for Arsenal – who Have won just four of the 13 Premier League games – since Lacazette scored a last-ditch equaliser to avoid an embarrassing defeat.
Emery’s role as Arsenal boss is under increasing stress, while a lovers’ group has issued a strongly-worded announcement accusing the hierarchy of”rudderless” leadership which has abandoned the club”floating aimlessly”.
Pires backed Emery to find a remedy to the worries of Arsenal – but cautioned the former Sevilla boss that time is running out.
Everybody understands at Arsenal, even Unai Emery, that they are in big trouble.
But Emery is a rival, he knows the high degree.
He was a fantastic director with Sevilla, with Paris Saint-Germain, but the situation is not too great.
He is a good manager, I think he will make a success with Arsenal. I expect for him anyhow.
The situation is not so great, but him and the players need to locate the solution.
Former Gunners midfielder Pires spoke of his fears for Arsenal when they do not get back into the top four, stating:”The target for Arsenal and for Unai would be to finish in the top four since it is very important for Arsenal to play again in the Champions League next year.
I don’t know what’s going to happen at the end of the season, particularly for Arsenal.
For Some gamers — Aubameyang, Lacazette, as well as Mesut Ozil — that the first Thing for them and all the Arsenal players is to finish in the top four.
