Nobody really knew anything was wrong before he stormed off like that‘He’s too emotional. I know he’s disappointed with his players he’s thinking why are they all not getting on together‘He either loves or hates them and he has to be the middle ground as the manager.

Those players will test you and something has gone on.‘Maybe David Luiz has been a bit immature, Higuain may have run into him and maybe he’s not happy. These things happen all the time but the manager has added to it by the way he’s behaved.‘The throwing of the cap and the over emotion it just leaves a bad taste in the mouth.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
