Unai Emery hits back at Carlo Ancelotti
North London outfit Arsenal boss is reported to have blasted Italian Serie A outfit Napoli boss for taking a swipe at his team after their 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
An own goal and another by Wales international Aaron Ramsey handed the Gunners team an edge ahead of next week’s second leg at Naples in the Europa League quarter-finals clash.
Carlo Ancelotti had stated that his players were more physical than the Arsenal players, hinting that the Unai Emery team are not fit enough as they suffered cramps in the game. He stressed that it would be an advantage to his side in the second leg.
In his reply, the Spanish boss disagreed with the stand of the Italian manager as he stated that it is normal for players to be tired after a game of such intensity, stressing that he is very comfortable with the state of his players after the game.
Unai Emery, therefore, stated that all of his players have to be ready and fit for the second leg and not be carried away by the Monday Premier League game against Watford.
This, therefore, means that there could be a squad rotation by the manager in the Monday clash against Watford.
