Arsenal hero Lee Dixon rips into Unai Emery and makes January transfer demand – EXCLUSIVE

Lee Dixon delivered the damning verdict on struggling Unai Emery’s hopes at Arsenal as he declared: “If I was the board I would not give him any money in January.”

Former Arsenal legend Dixon believes that Emery has almost run out of time after 18 months in charge at the Emirates, with his team 19 points off a Champions League place and without a win in four league games.

The former England defender questions whether the Spaniard knows what he wants from his players, accuses his team of making the same mistakes all season, believes that spending in January will not fix the problems – and accused Emery of making Granit Xhaka a scapegoat.
