After the new defeat of Arsenal against Leicester City on Saturday night (2-0), the position of Unai Emery in the Gunners is increasingly threatened. Behind the scenes, London leaders would begin to look for his eventual successor.
The English Sunday press suggests that Arsenal leaders would consider recruiting Luis Enrique to replace Unai Emery. The former coach of FC Barcelona is no longer stationed since his departure for personal reasons of his job coach of the team of Spain. With Barca, the Spanish technician won no less than nine major trophies during the three years he spent at the head of the Catalan club.
Arsenal at eight points of the Top 4
Two years ago, Arsenal put his name on his list of coaches likely to succeed Arsene Wenger. But the choice was finally Unai Emery who had just left the PSG. Since then, the Spanish coach has failed to qualify his team for the Champions League and Saturday's loss leaves the Gunners at eight points in the Top 4 after just twelve days in the Premier League. Saturday, the local press suggested that Steven Gerrard could also be one of the serious candidates for the job.
