Why the board may not sack Unai Emery
Hello Arsenal fans around the world; how are you today? Hope we are still keeping the faith? How mentally prepared are we for our next League game away at Norwich?
Have you guys ever thought why the club will not sack Emery? Have you ever asked yourself why Emery was even appointed at the first place? Well, i may not be totally right and i am open to constructive criticism, but these are the reasons why i feel the club may not sack Emery.
1. Emery was appointed because he accepted to manage an Arsenal team built on mediocrity: Lets us flash back to when Arsenal sacked Wenger and were in need of a coach. Many candidates were rumoured to have been interviewed but the board choose Emery. Why did they choose Emery? Simple; Emery was chosen because he was the only manager who agreed to coach a team whose board of directors were not ready to spend to improve the team. He had worked at a club that ran on a low budget and he was selected, because the board of directors wanted him to work out his magic at Arsenal, the way he worked it at Sevilla. Am I wrong?
2. The cost of sacking Emery may be too much for the club to bear: Relieving a coach of his duties before the end of his contract, is very expensive and from what i have noticed at Arsenal, they won’t want to pay such an amount, when the cheapest option is to allow him run down his contract and then let him go.
3. Even if Emery was to be sacked, will the club be able to appoint a coach that will accept a club that is not willing to splash out all the cash needed to improve things? I doubt they would. The coaches we have around these days are coaches that want their employers to give them the tools necessary to succeed. Will Arsenal be ready to splash out the cash to turn things around? Even if the do sack Emery, I doubt if they will.
4. Emery will be willing to accept any conditions thrown at him, because he is desperate to be in a job and this will favour the board of directors.
Now, these reasons may well sound illogical but then, what other reasons can you come up with, apart from all these that i highlighted?
