Unai Emery’s tactics questioned by his players who miss playing under Arsene Wenger.
After 22 years at the helm, Arsene Wenger was forced to depart the Emirates. However, he remains a popular figure among some fans and players.
Unai Emery is into his second season with Arsenal, but the players seem to be struggling with his style of play.
Reports in the media claim that the club’s players have begun to question Emery’s tactics as the former PSG boss continues to change things up.
He started his reign with a high press before abandoning that style, he also wanted them to play from the back and has changed that too after a backlash from the fans.
In their last game against Wolves, Emery shocked everyone by going with a diamond formation as he looked to accommodate Mesut Ozil in the side.
The same report also claims that the tinkering of formation has left the players confused and they no longer know the club’s identity.
While the team had their bad times under Wenger, there was at least an identity of possession-based football and most of the club’s stars reportedly wish the Frenchman was their manager now.
Emery has another chance to impress the players and fans this weekend against Leicester City and the players will be hoping that they don’t get forced into yet another new tactic.
