first_img Comment Massimiliano Allegri is a potential replacement for Emery (Picture: Getty Images)Max Allegri and Mikel Arteta are thought to be realistic candidates to replace Emery in the Emirates dugout, although latest reports suggest the former is losing interest in the job with Arsenal not competing for the Premier League title or competing at all in the Champions League.Even without a clear replacement, Emery needs to conjure up some much-improved results and do it very quickly to have much chance of holding onto his job beyond December.His first chance to do so is at home to Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday night before a Premier League trip to Norwich on Sunday.MORE: Massimiliano Allegri has doubts over Arsenal job as pressure on Unai Emery growsMORE: Man Utd and Arsenal keeping tabs on Ezequiel Barco as Sporting prepare bid Sacking Unai Emery will cost Arsenal £4m before the end of the season but nothing in the summer Advertisement Unai Emery is going through an increasingly difficult time at Arsenal (Picture: Getty Images)Arsenal may be considering sacking Unai Emery as manager, but it will be a lot cheaper to let him go at the end of the season than now.The Spaniard is going through an extremely difficult time as Gunners boss, with his side failing to win any of their last six games in all competitions.The poor string of results and performances has seen Emery’s side drop to eighth in the Premier League and be eliminated from the Carabao Cup.It has also seen fans, players and the board lose face in the manager’s methods and talk of him being sacked growing ever louder and more persistent.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTThe club held a crisis meeting with Emery after Saturday’s dreadful draw with Southampton at the Emirates and are now in fear of a number of players leaving at the first opportunity.Emery being sacked looks inevitable, but the Arsenal hierarchy may be put off giving him the boot by the huge payout it would cost them.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityThe Daily Mail reports that sacking Emery before the end of the season would cost the Gunners at least £4m, however, letting him go in the summer would cost nothing.The 48-year-old signed a two-year deal at the Emirates in the summer of 2018, with the club holding an option to extend it for a further year.If the board chose not to extend his contract by 12 months, then Emery could be let go for free,The decision-makers in the Arsenal boardroom are going to have to carry out some cost-benefit analysis as they work out what is best for the club in the short and long term.

Aribo dreams of developing new scoring skills with Gerrard, McAllister’s support

first_img “But I feel I have developed a lot and I’m learning day in day out in games and on the training field as well. “When you look at the staff, you have the gaffer and Macca, two great players that have played in my position too. So I can just take little things off them every single day and, of course, you learn in matches.” Rangers have played league matches against Aberdeen and St. Mirren so far this season without fans who have been barred from stadiums due to coronavirus restrictions. Aribo explained that Gerrard’s side misses the atmosphere created by fans in the stadium, but they will continue to make them happy with their results. “When you get the backing of the fans that give you that extra 10 percent, so sometimes I feel like we miss it because if we are not making noises on the pitch it just feels quiet,” he said. “You don’t have the bounce and energy of the fans to get you going so it is a bit weird, but we just have to deal with what is going on right now. “I just want to keep scoring goals and keep the fans happy, even if they are not in the stadium cheering. “I know they’ll be at home smiling, so we need to put on a show and that’s all I really want to do, put on a show every single game and just do all I can do to help the team get the best performances and the best results that we can get.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Rangers midfielder, Joe Aribo believes the presence of Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister in Rangers’ backroom could help him become a proven goalscorer from his position. The 24-year-old helped Rangers to back-to-back victories in their first two matches in the Premiership this term and he is hoping to do more with his contribution in front of goal. Ahead of the Gers’ battle against St. Johnstone on Wednesday, the Super Eagles star disclosed how he’s working to improve on his goalscoring abilities. “That’s the one thing I’ve always wanted to be known as, a goalscoring midfielder,” Aribo was quoted as saying in Rangers matchday programme. “I’ve sat down with the gaffer and we spoke about it, so I know that is one area I need to improve on. “I think it’s a case of wanting to be in the right place at the right time and having the willingness and the desire to be there. read also:Joe Aribo named in difficult Europa clash against Leverkusen “It’s also about being calmer in front of goal as well, not slashing at shots and taking your time with them.
