The Athletic reporter David Ornstein has revealed that the Arsenal board have no intention of dismissing Unai Emery from the head coach role despite the recent run of poor form.
The Gunners have accumulated just two points from their past four Premier League games and they recently suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
With the result, the north London side find themselves eight points behind the top four and their prospects of securing Champions League football through the league seem to be fading after just 12 games into the season.
As a result, there have been a section of the Gunners supporters calling for the dismissal of the manager but that appears unlikely to happen in the near future.
According to Ornstein, the Gunners hierarchy have clearly denied any discussions with managerial candidates and they are ‘100%’ behind Emery despite the recent setback in the league.
The Gunners have league games against Southampton, Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion following the international break and the club stand a strong chance of winning each of those matches.
Still, there is a general frustration among the club’s faithful over the style of play under Emery and it remains to be seen whether the Spaniard makes any notable changes in a fortnight’s time.
Arsenal are currently placed sixth in the league standings with 17 points on the board. This constitutes their worst-ever start to a top-flight campaign in more than three decades.
