Gary Neville slams Arsenal’s ‘uncoachable’ players after Unai Emery’s sacking

first_imgGary Neville says Sokratis and David Luiz are ‘uncoachable’ (Getty Images)‘The recruitment at Arsenal has been strange for a number of years, they haven’t got it right in a number of areas.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘There’s two things they need to do – get their recruitment right but second put someone in place who can live through these difficult times and transition from a difficult moment to a good moment.‘You think of the job Mauricio Pochettino did at Tottenham it wasn’t the best squad when he took over but he was able to manipulate that squad for not a lot of money into something very good. Essentially Arsenal need that same type of person who is capable of doing that.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Freddie Ljungberg has been named as Arsenal’s new interim manager (Getty Images)‘That will be something I’m sure they are working hard to resist. The main thing the Arsenal board need to do is ensure they are not sacking another manager in 12-18 months, then sacking another, because it just will not work.‘It’ll cost them more money, not just in sacking the manager and their respective [coaching] teams, but also in terms of recruitment idea and the players who are brought in.‘I’d imagine a new manager now will come in and want to wipe out half of that dressing room. That costs money, and the reality is they want to bring their own players in, and they should do as well. Gary Neville has hit out at Arsenal’s players after Unai Emery’s departure (Sky Sports)Gary Neville claims Arsenal’s players have been ‘uncoachable’ under Unai Emery following the Gunners’ decision to sack the Spaniard on Friday.Emery was dismissed at the club’s training ground during a meeting on Friday morning just hours after his side slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.Arsenal, who have appointed Freddie Ljungberg as Emery’s interim replacement, are now without a win in seven games in all competitions, their worst run of form since February 1992.But Neville believes Arsenal’s defenders are to blame for Emery’s departure.ADVERTISEMENT‘It has been messy, let’s be clear about this, these defenders like [Shkodran] Mustafi, Sokratis and [David] Luiz are uncoachable,’ Neville told Sky Sports News.

Andy Murray leads Great Britain to first Davis Cup triumph in 79 years

first_imgAndy Murray inspired Great Britain to Davis Cup glory with a straight-sets win over Belgium’s David Goffin to clinch a 3-1 victory and end a 79-year wait to lift one of the most sought-after trophies in tennis.Britain headed into the final day leading 2-1 after Murray and his brother Jamie secured a crucial win in the doubles on Saturday with Leon Smith’s team counting on the world number two to secure a famous win.Murray delivered in emphatic fashion winning 6-3 7-5 6-3, despite a dogged resistance from a fiercely-determined Goffin, to clinch an 11th personal victory in this year’s competition and Britain’s first Davis Cup title since 1936.For Murray, who clinched victory with a breathtaking point, it was another memorable career highlight with his team-mates on hand to join the wild celebrations.The 28-year-old did not wait to put Goffin under immense pressure from the outset and secured a crucial break of serve with a stunning display of power hitting from the back of the court in the sixth game of the match to seize control.The world number two broke to love with an imperious string of points and went on to take the opening set 6-3 in commanding fashion, despite fierce resistance from Goffin on the indoor clay of Flanders Expo. Murray, who has a formidable record from one-set up in matches, saw Goffin force a break point in his first service game of the second set, but the Belgian could not capitalise to seize an early advantage.The Brit proceeded to power through a series of games winning an astonishing 18 successive points on serve to keep pace with Goffin before eventually breaking with the set finely poised at 5-5.Murray refused to let his level drop at all as he took the second set with unerring confidence to give himself a cushion with Britain expectant at just one set away from glory.With Goffin able to play with greater freedom from a losing position, the 24-year-old put Murray under considerable pressure in the third set, repeatedly taking the Brit to deuce on his serve.But when it really mattered Murray, who had won both previous matches against Goffin in straight sets, was able to repel his obdurate opponent and secure an inspired break in the seventh game with a flurry of brutal groundstrokes. It was ultimately fitting that Murray, who has been Britain’s reliable and consistently brilliant leader throughout the Davis Cup campaign, was the man to close out a famous triumph in tennis’s premier team competition.Murray, who already had Wimbledon and US Open titles to his name, as well as an Olympic gold, has now inspired Britain to yet another memorable and historic crown. For the Scot and his team-mates, this was a most magnificent way to end the year.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more
