Emiliano Martinez has taken to social media to say sorry to Unai Emery.
At the time of writing this, just one Arsenal player has taken to Twitter to comment on the sacking of Unai Emery.
Emiliano Martinez, who was in goal last night against Eintract Frankfurt has apologised to the Spaniard.
Martinez wrote his tweet in both English and Spanish thus ensuring that Emery fully understands what he said.
Thank you @UnaiEmery_ and Javi I’m sorry we let you down , it’s our fault for not performing the right way , I’m sure we will meet again❤️

I kind of doubt that the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette will accept responsibility as Martinez has done.
Martinez is right to some extent, the players did let Emery down but the vast majority of the fault lies with Emery.
The buck always stops with the manager, yes, the players should have done better but why did they not?
Players respond to the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola, even Eddie Howe, Chris Wilder etc. So why not Emery?
It was decent of Martinez to write such a tweet but his opinion will not be widely felt. Certainly not among his teammates in the dressing room.
It will be interesting to see which players tweet later today and what they have to say for themselves.
