Unai Emery showed a great deal of optimism about his future as he met with the press ahead of Arsenal’s tie against Frankfurt on Thursday by saying his future is “today AND tomorrow.”
Unai Emery knows he’s done.
You know it, I know it, the papers know it, the players know it and the only thing stopping the board from doing anything about it is not having anyone to put in his place.
But, lose tomorrow against Frankfurt, or even win with another Emeryball performance and it should be clear, even to those who sit on the Arsenal board, that nobody would be better than this current somebody.
Asked about his future and the club reportedly chasing other managers, Emery replied simply, “My future is today and tomorrow.”
If I was in his position I’d find it a bit of a gamble to add in the ‘tomorrow’ bit. It shows bravery sadly lacking from his tactics.
But, perhaps he’s right.
Perhaps tomorrow we get to send Unai off into his new future, far away from London as we finally begin the business of forgetting any of this ever happened.
