Arsene Wenger replacement: Angry Arsenal fans react after club switch targets from Mikel Arteta to Unai Emery

Arsenal fans have reacted with resentment following the club’s switch of managerial targets from Mikel Arteta to Unai Emery at the 11th hour.

Arsenal had been lining up their former player and Manchester City boss to replace Arsene Wenger after 22 years at the club.

But Emery is now the one to beat, which has left a number of Gunners fans both irritated and underwhelmed.

The Spaniard was sacked by Paris Saint-Germain this month after two years in charge.

Emery suffered a blow when Neymar was struck down by injury and Real Madrid eliminated them at the last 16 of the Champions League.

Even though he strolled to another Ligue 1 title, including adding a Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, the PSG hierarchy saw fit to replace him with Thomas Tuchel.
