Unai Emery has become the latest managerial casualty in the Premier League after the Gunners finally losing patience with the Spaniard following a run of seven games without a win.
Thursday night’s Europa League defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt proved to be the final nail in the coffin for the Sevilla coach, a poor display watched on by what looked like just a handful of frustrated Arsenal supporters.
In typical fashion the world of social media has been reacting to the latest news, here are some of Twitter’s best reactions to Emery’s Emirates departure:
Are you Wenger in disguise? Arsenal’s lack of improvement was fairly damning.
88 – Arsenal won exactly the same number of points in Unai Emery’s 51 Premier League games as they did in Arsene Wenger’s final 51 games in charge (88 points). Preservation. pic.twitter.com/vu7qqf2pCg

The Spaniard’s decisions often brought much confusion, not least his pass-the-parcel policy with the club’s captaincy.
Arsenal had nine different captains under Unai Emery

It’s fair to say the Arsenal fanbase are not too sorry to see Emery leave.
