Wenger hits back at Emery and denies Arsenal were in decline

Recently, sacked Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been making headlines with his comments on how Arsenal is and why he was sacked.

One such comment was that the club was already on a decline when he joined and there was nothing much he could do.

The Spaniard said: ‘Arsenal was a club on a downward slope for two years before I arrived. 

‘We stopped this fall and even began to rebuild the club with the Europa League final and fifth place in the league, only one point off Tottenham despite the fact that we took just one point in our final five matches.

‘We had Champions League qualification in our grasp and it went wrong in the end. But it was a good season and we had this notion of continuing to improve.’ 

Wenger has however refuted these claims saying: ‘In 2017 we made 75 points and won the FA Cup so you cannot say that [Arsenal were in decline] and the year before [2016] we finished second in the league.’

After the sacking of Emery, Mikel Arteta was appointed and, in as much as the results are yet to be seen, there seems to be some positivity from the players.
