Head of football Raul Sanllehi and managing director Vinai Venkatesham have given the Arsenal head coach their support
The Gunners have won just two of their last 10 Premier League games, leaving them in sixth place on 17 points and eight points off the Champions League places heading into the two-week international break.
It has been Arsenal’s worst start to a league season for 37 years but the club’s head of football Raul Sanllehi and managing director Vinai Venkatesham have given Emery a vote of confidence.
Speaking at a club staff event attended by around 200 people today (November 11), the pair admitted they are “as disappointed as everyone else with both our results and performances at this stage of the season” but suggested the Spaniard’s job isn’t at risk, reports Goal.com.

Sanllehi and Venkatesham said: “We share the frustration with our fans, Unai, players and all our staff as they are not at the level we want or expect.
“Things need to improve to meet our objectives for the season, and we firmly believe Unai is the right man for the job, together with the backroom team we have in place.
“We are all working intensively behind the scenes to turn things around and are confident we will.
“We never take our fantastic support for granted.
“We hope we can all stick together and get behind the team in this challenging period, as together we are stronger.”Embed from Getty Images
There have been strong calls from frustrated fans, pundits and former players for Emery to be sacked.
But the noises now coming out of the club would suggest that a change is not imminent.
