Arsenal manager Unai Emery would be a fortunate man to hang on to his job beyond this week after the disappointing performance against second bottom team Southampton in the Premier League at the weekend.

Unai Emery saw his side equalise twice to secure a very fortunate 2-2 draw at home to a Southampton side that should have won the league clash if they were more clinical in the final third.

According to experienced journalist Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail, Arsenal officials understand that it would be difficult to lure long-term managerial targets to the club as a replacement for Unai Emery in the middle of the season.

With this in mind, Arsenal are targeting short-term replacements for the Spanish manager in the form of the double-acts of Freddie Ljunberg and Steve Bould.

Former Arsenal players Freddie Ljunberg and Steve Bould are now coaches at the club.

Swedish football icon Ljunberg is an assistant manager in the current Arsenal first team coaching crew under Unai Emery, while Steve Bould was part of that coaching crew before he left to take up the Arsenal u23 managerial job this summer.

Freddie Ljunberg was the Arsenal u23 manager before former teammate Steve Bould assumed the role.
