Alexandre Lacazette says the squad is fully behind Unai Emery despite crisis period…


 

Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette has reiterated that the current squad is fully behind head coach Unai Emery and are working to reverse the slump the team is in, the Frenchman told Arsenal Player.

With just two wins from our last 11 Premier League games and no wins in our last four, pressure is mounting on the Spaniard who was handed a target of finishing in the top four this season.

We now trail Leicester City and Chelsea by nine points, though it’s Manchester City who currently sit in fourth place eight points adrift of the Gunners.

Following Saturday’s defeat at the King Power Stadium, the feeling amongst the fanbase seemed unanimous in their desire to see Emery lose his job.

However, the club has since issued their public backing of the Spaniard though they did acknowledge that the current malaise must be arrested.

For Lacazette, the feeling is mutual within the playing staff.

“The group definitely supports the coach and I’m sure the club does as well,” Lacazette said.

“We’re a very tight group and we’re doing everything we can to improve.”

Speaking about the team’s current form, the 28-year-old stated that being calm and moving forward will be the recipe to success.

“Obviously we’re not at the top of our game at the moment,” the former Lyon man explained.

“But we remain leaders in the Europa League, we’re still in the running in the championship. I think now we just need to work on keeping things calm and moving forward with that.

“We’re working together every day on a constant basis to pick up the slack.”

These words from Lacazette, though they’re not intended to, actually increase the scrutiny on the manager and discards potential excuses.

If he has the players’ full backing and they are working hard to improve, the evidence of that has been nonexistent.

Ultimately, these soundbites in the media may be genuine, but it’s the results and performances on the pitch that will determine Emery’s future. Arsenal fans are tired of hearing excuses and about the work going on behind the scenes – we’d like to see it when it counts.
