first_imgEmmanuel Petit has had enough of Emery at the Emirates (Picture: Getty Images)‘Arsene Wenger built this club for 20 years and there was concern as generation after generation came and went. But now they look like an average team without any inspiration or creativity – and I don’t think that’s solely down to the players.‘My opinion is that most of the players have given up on Emery, so it’s time for him to go.‘I watched the game against Leicester and Arsenal looked terrible. They had no spirit, no hunger, nothing at all. I wondered to myself, “What is going on at this club? What is happening to this club?”’Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi gave Emery the dreaded vote of confidence on Monday, and Petit believes this just proves that the hierarchy at the Emirates are ready to pull the trigger on the former PSG boss.‘What the club came out and said about Emery’s job being safe is not true at all,’ said the World Cup winning midfielder.‘This is a political answer and most of the time when I hear officials or shareholders talk like this it’s proof for me that they’re already thinking about sacking the manager. It’s the opposite of what they’re saying that might be true.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityIt was reported on Tuesday that Emery is not about to get the sack, but he has less than two months to save his job.Arsenal host Manchester United in the Premier League on New Year’s Day and if they are not in with a realistic chance of making the top four after that contest then Emery will likely lose his job.MORE: Arsenal board give ultimatum to Unai EmeryMORE: Patrick Vieira backs Granit Xhaka to play again for Arsenal and slams his critics Comment Phil HaighTuesday 12 Nov 2019 6:36 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link148Shares Unai Emery is under increasing pressure at Arsenal (Picture: REUTERS)The Arsenal squad has completely lost faith in Unai Emery and it is time for him to be sacked as manager, according to Gunners hero Emmanuel Petit.It has been a very tough few weeks for Emery, with Arsenal now without a win in five games after defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday evening.The Gunners may only be sixth in the table, which does not seem disastrous, but with just four wins from 12 Premier League matches, and already eight points off the top four, things look quite bleak at the Emirates.A negative goal difference is a worrying sign for the red half of north London, as is the seeming disharmony in the squad, epitomised by Granit Xhaka being stripped of the club captaincy after a spat with fans.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTPetit believes that enough is enough and that it is time for Emery to be dismissed from the Emirates dugout.‘I believe it’s time for Unai Emery to leave Arsenal,’ the Frenchman told Paddy Power. ‘The results are not good at all. I don’t recognise this team any more and I don’t recognise this club any more.
