Being defeated at Europa League final against Chelsea is indeed really hurtful for all of Arsenal's players, including Granit Xhaka. Therefore, the Arsenal star refused to back his manager, Unai Emery after The Gunners lose their chance to win the trophy after a miserable 4-1 defeat in Baku. As they failed to secure the title, Unai Emery finished his debut campaign at the Emirates Stadium without a trophy. Moreover, The Gunners will play their third consecutive season in the Europa League next term. That's quite disappointing as Unai Emery is known to be the manager who successfully brings his two previous clubs to win the Europa League, and everybody has high hope on him.
Other than that, the defeat means Unai Emery's budget will be around 45 million pounds this summer, therefore several first-team stars could now leave the club as a consequence. And to be honest, Arsene Wenger, their previous coach has faced constant questions on his future towards the end of his reign but Arsenal's end-of-season collapse under Unai Emery was reminiscent of the form they have shown under the Frenchman in the latter years of his 21-year spell.
The Manager and The Players Just Sat In Silence
In a damning assessment of Unai Emery's first year in charge of The Gunners, Granit Xhaka refused to say whether he felt his side has improved under the former Paris Saint-Germain boss. When he asked if he thinks that the manager had taken the club forward, Granit Xhaka replied he don't know. And he said that he might be not the right person to answer that kind of question.
As soccer betting Malaysia mentioned before, Unai Emery had won all three of his previous Europa League finals before joining The Gunners. And he indeed really frustrated after failed to win the title with Arsenal.
When asked about the dressing room situation after their miserable defeat, Granit Xhaka replied the Spanish manager didn't say anything an just sat with the squad in silence. He said the manager and all of the players didn't speak a word in the dressing room. He himself doesn't really sure about what's in his manager's head following their defeat but he is sure he was disappointed about the result.
