Saka cites poor communication as Emery’s problem

The 18-year-old said he has to rely on first team coach Freddie Ljungberg because he finds it difficult to understand the Arsenal boss.

Saka’s revelation is coming days after fans demanded for the sack of Emery after last Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Southampton.

“Sometimes when I don’t understand, when the coach is trying to communicate with me, I have a better communication with Freddie sometimes, he speaks better English,” said Saka who is born to Nigeria parents.

The potential problem has also been highlighted by Paris Saint Germain midfielder Julian Draxler.

“I consider him a very good coach, but with him the communication was sometimes not that easy. When you talk to Thomas ([Tuchel] and he clearly tells you in two sentences in German what is good and what is not good, that is certainly an advantage.”
