Arsenal 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt – Unai Emery FULL Post Match Press Conference – SUBTITLES


How disappointing, how depressing was that defeat? how difficult is it going to be to recover from that? Good ebening. yes the result is.. I think we deserved more we controlled the game in the first half, we scored one goal. We, in the first half, were happy for how we took the performance as a team and also individually. In the second half we started the same, we needed to score a goal but we lost the control of the game after 15 minutes and they scored two goals. At the end we changed two players for injuries and we couldn’t do some more offensive changes to achieve, and to take fresh players. We didn’t push, we didn’t really take the chances to draw or win this match. I mean a lot of the fans stayed away
tonight, how disappointing is that? and also it looked as if the players were struggling to be motivated tonight? That must be a major concern? We need to win and we need to win playing well and take confidence and we did that in the first half. I think we were in the first half in the dressing room speaking about being consistent in the second half. We started the game pushing and started the game being consistent and I think we did that in the first five or 10 minutes, taking the chances to score. We lost the control in the 15 minutes [after half-time] because they also pushed and they scored two goals and then we couldn’t take chances to draw or to win. In this competition we continue to be first [in the group table] we lost a good opportunity to take first position in the group but we continue in that position and we are going to think about the next match, to achieve three points and to make sure that’s possible A lot of people are now saying you’ve taken this team as far as it can go are you confident that you can turn this around and continue to take this club forward? Now our moment is not good. We need to win and we need to gain confidence. I think we are better than we are showing, everybody, the players, the coaches and me. Now we lost some confidence and we need to win. Really, the response in the first half was good and we started very well again in the second half. We had two injures with Mustafi and David Luiz and that moment was important because when you’re losing you need some fresh players offensively to change and give the team more options. We couldn’t do that. Are you concerned for your job now? Do you feel you’ve lost it? I am thinking first about analysing this match over 90 minutes. Today we improved some things, but it wasn’t enough Do you feel you will remain in charge? I am thinking about the next match and analysing that match and the Europa League, and thinking about Sunday and how we can improve and achieve that confidence with the players. The players now are a little down in their feelings, but if we continue and can achieve a performance like the first half, I think that is the way. Unai you mentioned Sunday, do you feel if you don’t get a result on Sunday then your job really could be on the line? But my work and my job is to first analyse, analyse that match in 90 minutes and analyse also how we are in the Europa League and how we are also in our feelings and then prepare for the match on Sunday Clearly this is something systematic, 7 games now without a win, where do you think it is going wrong? We needed to achieve confidence here and play well. I think we improved in the first half and we improved also some things to make sure of our improvement and take the three points. But we didn’t do it all because we lost in 15 minutes the work in the first half. Again, I was speaking with the players after the first half to be consistent. We are going to continue and be positive but really we need also to win. The first for us to recover confidence is to win and to feel better above all here, at home, with our supporters here in Emirates, at home and it’s the first match we lost. But really, maybe today we deserved more but it’s the first match we lost here. You picked Granit Xhaka he came back in, he got a round of applause from the fans do you feel that issue is now behind you? Or that’s all in the past? It’s very good news with Granit and the normality. He played, he helped and the supporters also, I think they are also helping him and I think it’s good news How are David Luiz and Mustafi? Yes, I don’t know exactly now but they couldn’t finish that match and we are going to watch for tomorrow for how they are for Sunday We know you’re a very self critical manager and you analyse your work a lot do you accept or identifies mistakes that you have made? Yes. I can understand the criticism about the team, about me. We are not in a good moment and also as a coach, I had that moment also in my career Thank you very much
