Arsenal fans trolled manager Unai Emery on his birthday following increased speculation he could be on the verge of being replaced by Jose Mourinho.
Emery turned 48 on Sunday, 24 hours after Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves.
The disappointing draw extends their winless run in the Premier League to three games.
Early on Sunday morning, Arsenal’s official Twitter account posted a “happy birthday” tweet to Emery.
But supporters quickly replied, demanding that his ‘present’ be his departure from the Emirates after a tough spell.
“Happy bday but sorry it’s time to go,” one fan wrote, while another said: “As a birthday gift he should get sacked.”
“Happy Birthday but goodbye,” came another reply, with others demanding they “present him the termination letter” or “sack him right after he cuts the cake.”
Another proposed: “Happy birthday Unai Emery. The best birthday present the club can give you is a £6M cheque buying off the remainder of your contract, thanking you for your services and wishing you the best of luck for the future.
“You get the money and we get our Arsenal back. A win win for all,” another Twitter user wrote.
The fans’ call amid rumours that Jose Mourinho, a former Chelsea and Manchester United manager, might be hired by the North London club.
The speculation comes after he was sighted having a discussion with Arsenal’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi.
It is being speculated that Emery has just two games left to save his job as the club hierarchy consider a switch in the November international break.
