Arsenal manager Unai Emery is not the right man to take the club forward according to former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan.

In a chat with Press Box, Simon Jordan revealed that Unai Emery has demonstrated that he’s not the right person to take Arsenal to the next level.

According to him, he thinks Unai Emery has a plan to move Arsenal forward but signings like David Luiz show that the Spanish tactician doesn’t have a plan for progress at Arsenal.

David Luiz has come under heavy scrutiny after his performance for the Gunners in the 3-1 defeat to Premier League leaders Liverpool on Saturday.

He was at fault for two of the goals as Arsenal fell to their first defeat of the season.

David Luiz is an £8m signing from London rivals Chelsea on deadline day of the Premier League transfer window.

The Brazilian attacker spent seven years at Chelsea over two spells either side of his two-year stay at PSG.

David Luiz was making only his second appearance in an Arsenal shirt and it ended in a mini-disaster for him.

The Brazilian player would be hoping for a better outing when Arsenal host Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby at the weekend.
