Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has been given a vote of confidence by the club’s board, describing him as the right man for the job.
The board on Monday, however, warned that performance and results for the team on the pitch must improve.
The backing comes after Arsenal secured just two wins from their last 10 Premier League games, with Emery being heavily criticised by the club’s fans.
A 0-2 loss at Leicester on Saturday saw the Gunners fall eight points behind the Premier League’s top four going into the international break.
However, Vinai Venkatesham, the club’s Managing Director; and Raul Sanllehi, the club’s head of football, insist Emery remains the right man for the job.
“We are as disappointed as everyone else with both our results and performances at this stage of the season,” Sanllehi and Venkatesham told Arsenal staff at a pre-planned meeting on Monday.
“We share the frustration with our fans, Unai, the players and all our staff as they are not at the level we want or expect.
“Things need to improve to meet our objectives for the season, and we firmly believe Unai is the right man for the job, together with the backroom team we have in place.”
Asides the performance on the pitch, Emery also faced criticism for his appointment of and subsequent stripping of Granit Xhaka as club captain.
