Wenger criticises Arsenal for ‘unfair treatment’ of Villarreal coach Emery

Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger has criticised the club for their treatment of Unai Emery.

The Spaniard has revitalised his career at Villarreal after being sacked by Arsenal in November 2019 after just 18 months in the job.

Emery and Villarreal lost to Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

When asked by beIN Sports host Richards Keys if Emery was “unfairly treated” by Arsenal, Wenger said: “Certainly, yes.

“Because they didn’t give him a lot of time.”

He added: “But as well, there’s a lot to talk about because, for example, is it right that the teams who are not successful in the group stage can play the Europa League?

“Because out of ten years, the teams who are not successful in the Champions League were winning the Uefa Cup.

“So that transformed a non-success into a success.

“It was more to give an importance to the trophy than to reward the sporting quality.

“But I think Unai Emery’s a great coach – that he has shown it in Spain again and he is constantly there at the top level.”
