With every passing day ,the pressure keeps growing on Unai Emery to somehow turn the bad results the club is currently having around. This week, rumours about a list of potential replacements filled the media with several names being thrown around.
When asked questions about his future with the club, he said: “My future is today and tomorrow ”
“My job is to prepare for the match tomorrow and only look at the match tomorrow, to show the best performance for the team.
“We are playing at home with our supporters so we want to transmit our energy, our gameplan and everything we work on here at the training ground.
“Those are my only thoughts.”
The Spaniard was asked if this period is the most difficult moment of his career that has seen him manage clubs in several countries.
He said, “As a coach, each moment in my career is difficult.
“It’s a very good job, but it’s very hard. When you are winning, you feel the support from everybody, but when you’re not winning like in the last matches, you have some doubters.
“In my career I had successful moments and also in those successful moments, with a small moment, not being well like being consistent every time.
“In those moments I need to be focused for my work and focused with the players.
“I know some doubt is coming about the results but my objective is to change that and come back with the performance and connect with the supporters.”
Some fans and a large part of the media feels it’s now a matter of when and not if Emery will be replaced. The result is not forthcoming, rather is the performance anything to build hopes on.
