Club Legend Slams Arsenal Manager For This Reason

Former Arsenal striker has berated manager Unai Emery after the Gunners could only manage a draw at home to fellow Europa League campaigners Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday evening.

While he was on BBC Radio 5 Live, the Arsenal legend questioned Unai Emery and his selections during the game.

Ian Wright wondered why the Arsenal manager subbed off a defensive-minded player like Lucas Torreira for an attack-minded player like Bukayo Saka.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery made the substitution in the 73rd minute while the Gunners were leading 1-0 at home and they ended up losing that lead three minutes after that controversial substitution.

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez scored the equalizer for the Midlands club to make it 11 goals for him in all competitions this season.

He scored that leveler off the assist from Portuguese international player Joao Moutinho.

Arsenal had taken the lead through Gabonese international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but we’re unable to hold on to that lead as it has been in previous games this season.

Aubameyang has now scored 50 goals in the colours of Arsenal after just 78 games thus making him the fastest player to reach that landmark in the Premier League era ahead of others like Thierry Henry, Ian Wright and Dennis Bergkamp.
