Stephan Lichtsteiner opens up on his biggest concern with Unai Emery during Arsenal days

Stephan Lichtsteiner has finally revealed that his biggest concern with Unai Emery was how he struggled to get the most out of Arsenal's top players.

Emery endured a difficult start to the season that saw Arsenal go seven games without a win in all competitions with his last game coming in the 1-2 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Spanish manager signed Lichtsteiner on a free transfer at Arsenal when his contract expired at Juventus in the summer of 2018 but left last summer to join Augsburg.

In an interview with inews, Lichtsteiner revealed his biggest concern with Emery, "When a manager doesn’t play you for two months it is easy to criticize. That’s not my style.

"Over a long time it was really good, then the last two months [of the season] I didn’t really understand what had happened.

"Training was good, the team that we had last year was an amazing team, so it’s not my thing to speak bad about the coach because it is too easy now that they are struggling to say something against him.

"I’d say [he is] a good trainer, a good coach, but maybe he struggled with the top players. With the big players, he hasn’t maybe the relationship to bring more out [of them] and get the top performances.

"Maybe that point I can say [something] negative, but the rest was almost everything positive."
