Jurgen Klopp react after Unai Emery's Arsenal dismissal


Jurgen Klopp have expressed shock on Arsenal's decision to sack Unai Emery on Friday morning and replaced him with Freddie Ljungberg

The Arsenal boss was shown the exit door less than 24 hours after a humiliating Europa League home defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt which was played out in front of a half empty Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have won just once in their last nine matches in all competitions, a run which included the astonishing penalty shootout defeat against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup, having twice led by two goals in a match which finished 5-5.

The Gunner currently sit eight points short to the Premier League top four and fans of the London club have been calling for the dismissal of the Spaniard in recent days which is assumed the reason why they refused backing the club in the Thursday Europa League encounter.

In reaction to the news Klopp said: "I was surprised, I got up this morning and saw the news.

"What can I say? That's how the football world is, I have no inside info, have no clue what exactly happened there. Obviously the board decided they were not happy with the results, the performances.

"In the end they have to make decisions, it's our life. That's what happens the moment you sign a contract.

"We have to make the best of the situation at a club, when people think it's not the best that's a possible solution.

"Obviously it happened to Unai. I wish him all the best, he's an outstanding manager, he showed that in so many different countries and different leagues. "He will be fine in the future, I'm sure he had big ambitions for Arsenal and it didn't work out. Now Arsenal have to find a solution.

"Freddie has taken the job now interim wise, that's how it is, there are coaches out there, younger, maybe less experienced but that doesn't mean a lot. Maybe he can take that chance."
