Arsenal are set to hire Unai Emery as their next manager. It is a worrying decision, but that is utterly not the fault of Emery himself and wholly the club’s.
It was a bolt out of the blue. Arsenal having seemingly settled on their managerial target for several days, suddenly changed the course. They re-routed, and quite substantially so. This was not a little deviation. This was a U-turn.
And at the end of their new route lies their next manager, the first man not named Arsene Wenger to manage this club in over two decades. Yes, Unai Emery is set to take his place at the Emirates helm.
