Charlie Nicholas on the role Granit Xhaka played in Unai Emery’s sacking at Arsenal

Charlie Nicholas believes the outburst of Granit Xhaka was the start of Unai Emery’s demise at Arsenal.

Emery was sacked by the Gunners on Friday morning with Freddie Ljungberg appointed interim head coach while the club assess their options moving forward.

The Spaniard’s sacking comes following Arsenal’s worst run of form since 1992 with the Gunners winless in seven games and eight points off the top four in the Premier League.
