Arsenal have sacked Unai Emery after 18 months as manager and have replaced with assistant coach, Freddie Ljungberg on a temporary basis.
Emery took over from the long-serving Arsene Wenger in May 2018 and led the Gunners to the Europa League final last season, ultimately losing out to Premier League rivals Chelsea.
According to the club, the results and performances brought about their decision.
A statement from the club read, “We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team.
“The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required.
“We have asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach. We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward.
“The search for a new head coach is underway and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete.”
Non-executive director, Josh Kroenke also said, “Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand.
“We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success.”
