With pressure mounting on him, Unai Emery wasn’t prepared to talk in great detail about his Arsenal future, saying his focus was on preparing his team for tomorrow night’s Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.
This week the names of potential replacements have been doing the rounds as the Gunners dismal form continues, but while the Spaniard admitted there were some ‘doubters’, he wouldn’t be drawn on any discussions he might have had with the club about what’s going to happen.
“My future is today and tomorrow,” he said.
“My job is to prepare for the match tomorrow and only look at the match tomorrow, to show the best performance for the team.
“We are playing at home with our supporters so we want to transmit our energy, our gameplan and everything we work on here at the training ground.
“Those are my only thoughts.”
Emery was also asked if this was the most difficult moment of his coaching career which has seen him win the Europa League three times as well as the title in France with PSG.
“As a coach, each moment in my career is difficult,” he continued.
“It’s a very good job, but it’s very hard. When you are winning, you feel the support from everybody, but when you’re not winning like in the last matches, you have some doubters.
“In my career I had successful moments and also in those successful moments, with a small moment, not being well like being consistent every time.
“In those moments I need to be focused for my work and focused with the players.
“I know some doubt is coming about the results but my objective is to change that and come back with the performance and connect with the supporters.”
