English Premier League side, Arsenal, have parted ways with its head coach, Unai Emery and his coaching team after the Gunners lost to Eintracht Frankfurt in their Europa League match on Thursday.

The North London side was defeated 2-1 in their group game in the Europa League on Thursday at the Emirate.

Though the club’s board publicly backed their manager during the recent international break describing him as the right man for the job, however, Arsenal as ended its deal with Emery which got them a spot in the finals of last season Europa League.

Speaking on behalf of the Arsenal board and the owners Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, Josh Kroenke 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.”

He further stated that the board has asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach.
