Unai Emery reacts to Frankfurt defeat – Part 2

Posted on November 29, 2019 by Harry Kettle

On whether he thinks he’ll lose his job:
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.

On if he feels like his job is 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.

On where he believes it’s gone 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.

On Granit Xhaka:
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.

On injuries to Luiz & 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.

On if he takes responsibility for the club’s recent form:
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.

How do you feel about the defeat?
