Paddy Power suspend betting on Unai Emery sacking

Nuno Espirito Santo and Freddie Ljungberg are in the hunt for the job.


Paddy Power have suspended betting on Unai Emery to get the sack at Arsenal, after a flood of money this morning.

We believe the Spaniard has ‘won’ the fiercely competed sack race of the past week – at least he’s won something with Arsenal, then.

The favourites to succeed him are Wolves boss Nuno and assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg (both 6/4), with all the latest money coming for the club legend.

Asked about the situation at the Emirates spokesman Paddy Power said: “Like Arsenal conceding a goal, we could all see this for a long time, though I’m sure Unai Emery is utterly baffled – a bit like Gunners fans watching his post-match interviews recently.

“And it looks like the club could go from a pants manager to a pants model, as Freddie Ljungberg gets a lot of attention from our punters.”
