The Gunners have gone winless in their last seven matches with their last win coming back in October, a 3-2 home win over Vitoria in the Europa League

In a statement written on Arsenal website, Josh Kroenke, on behalf of the Arsenal board and owners, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment wished Unai and his team well and thanked him, for the time he spent with Arsenal

 “Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand. We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success.”

Interim

The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required.

The team has assigned Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility as an interim head coach having full confidence in Freddie to take the team forward.

 The search for a new head coach is underway and the team will make further announcements when that process is complete.
