Club legend urges Arsenal fans to get behind Emery

Arsenal fans have been urged to 'get behind' manager Unai Emery by club legend Patrick Vieira as he is the only man to get them through a 'difficult spell'. 

Arsenal fans have been calling for the club to sack Emery following poor results, the most recent being the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday. Vieira, who was himself a rumored replacement for Arsene Wenger when Emery took the job 18 months ago, believes that is the right call.

"It's true Arsenal are going through a tough spell. But I haven't watched all their matches, so I can't talk about their game," he said. 

"They have a coach who is qualified and who works well. When a club is having a difficult time, it's important to be united. I think he has enough experience to get them through this difficult spell."

"We have to get behind him and give him time to change things. I am not sure a change of manager will fix the problems."

The Gunners are currently sixth on the log with 17 points, 17 behind leaders Liverpool.
