Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery has slammed the club’s players for having poor attitudes and a lack of effort during his reign.
The Frenchman – who was in charge of the Gunners for less than two years – received his marching orders from the club in November 2019 after a poor run of results. They were sitting mid table in the Premier League with just five wins at the time and fans became restless along with several players who looked uninterested in Emery’s final matches at the helm.
