Emmanuel Petit has slammed Unai Emery and claimed the Arsenal team ‘p***es him off’

The Gunners sit fifth in the Premier League on just 15 points and lost 1-0 at Sheffield United last time out.

Petit played under Wenger from 1997-2000 but tsuck the boot in to his replacement when he said: “I can understand why many Arsenal supporters are losing patience with Unai Emery.

“As a manager he has a bad record away from home – not just with Arsenal, but also while he was in Spain.

“Arsenal showed no character and it p***es me off because it has been the case so many times away from home.

“The starting XI he picked against Sheffield United was strange.

“It’s difficult after an international break when you have to play teams that don’t have as many players involved in the international fixtures.

“But you know what to expect when you go to Bramall Lane – you know the qualities of the Sheffield United team.

“They fight, especially in front of their home crowd, and they get balls into the box and put pressure on at set pieces.

“That’s what they did against Liverpool and Chelsea.

“But more importantly they didn’t show any technical quality on the pitch.

“They gave away so many simple balls and had no inspiration, imagination or creativity.

“They looked so heavy. This isn’t Arsenal – you need to take the ball and show what you’ve got.

“But I haven’t seen that in years. Nothing has changed since Arsène Wenger left.”

Another ex-Gunner also piled into Emery this week when Emmanuel Frimpong slammed his team selection and “greasy hair”.

Fans online also laid into the Spaniard and told him who should have started the Blades game.

Emmanuel Petit was speaking to Paddy Power.
