The Board is solidly behind me – Emery brags after loss against Leicester City


Unai Emery says, despite recent run of poor form at the Emirates, he has the full backing of the club’s board.

The Gunners have gone four matches without a win and questions are being asked of Emery’s tactical decision for match-day games.

“When I speak to the club, they always transmit calm to me, which I try to transmit to the players and to the fans, knowing that we have an important objective this season,” Emery said


“I have said many times that I don’t feel pressure. Pressure is just what people talk about. I am demanding of myself and I feel responsible. I prepare for games with those things in mind. Whether we win or whether we lose, I prepare in the same way”.

“People have opinions and that’s logical. We are privileged in our position at Arsenal that we have a lot of fans who support us and also methods of communication that put us in contact with them”.

“When you win, they are happy and they applaud. When you lose, they protest. But this happens at all the teams I have been at.”
