Raul Sanllehi says that he has told Unai Emery he is expected to take Arsenal back into the Champions League in his second season in charge.

Emery arrived at Arsenal in the summer of 2018 tasked with ending what was then a two-year absence from the Champions League.

Failing to return to the Champions League does not necessarily mean that the Spaniard will be dispensed with.

However Arsenal have a option on whether or not to extend Emery's contract for a third season and it will certainly not strengthen his case if after two years he has not guided the club back to European football's top table.

"We said to Unai that we just missed out on qualifying for the Champions League last year, but this year with a stronger squad, we expect you to do that," Sanllehi said at a fans' forum event last night.

Emery's side have only lost one match all season - away to European champions Liverpool - but there have been murmurings of discontent from supporters who are not enamoured with the Spaniard's style of football and his sidelining of the club's highest-paid player Mesut Ozil.

The comments should not be read as an ultimatum to Emery and a club source insisted the Arsenal hierarchy are conscious of the strong levels of competition for a top four finish in the Premier League.
