Ian Wright lays claim to Unai Emery

Ian Wright has stated that Leeds United need someone like Aston Villa’s Unai Emery after Jesse Marsch was sacked on Monday.

The Arsenal legend added that Emery, who replaced Steven Gerrard at the tricky Villa ahead of the World Cup, is someone who will be cooking in the Midlands and Leeds now need a man of his experience, as he told Premier League Productions (23/06 – 23/06). 2020) said at 2:55 p.m.).

Despite Villa’s defeat by Leicester City at the weekend that keeps them fourth, the Midlands side’s fortunes have changed since the former Arsenal boss took charge, including victories over Manchester United, Tottenham and Leeds at Villa Park.

The game a few weeks ago brought the Marsch team to the point, they were the better team for long stretches, but they just weren’t disciplined enough in the last third and didn’t have the quality to keep the ball out the back of the net.

That’s why they hover above the relegation zone only on goal difference, even though they have a game against Everton in 18th place.

That game is at Old Trafford on Wednesday night against Manchester United before the duo meet again, this time at Elland Road, where Leeds will certainly want a new face in the dugout as Wright made it clear which route they should take.

“You need someone to come in and have the energy of an Unai Emery,” Wright said. “You need an experienced manager.

“A European manager who doesn’t panic in this situation going to Leeds. You need someone who is very stable in his thinking. Confidence in his coaching.

“I’m telling you, Villa will get by with what they have to do with this manager. I think they have to go there now. They shut down the Bielsa rock ‘n’ roll and it also brought the American vibe – after seeing that I don’t understand them. You need stability.”

Some may argue that Leeds have just come out of the transfer window in which Marsch was heavily backed and should have been allowed to work with their new players.

Well, if the results aren’t good enough, then this ruthless business will eat you up.

At the end of the day, the achievements after the World Cup were on the table, but not the results.

In addition, neither the performances nor the results were on the table before the World Cup, which cost him his job.
