Sir Andy Murray reckons it could be game, set and match for Unai Emery at Arsenal.

Emery is at break point having overseen just two wins in 11 Premier League games and Murray, a Gunners fan, believes it may be time to serve the Spaniard his notice.

“I actually haven’t been to the ground this season,” said Murray. “But from what I’ve been reading the atmosphere has been pretty bad – and I don’t think that’s good news for the players, staff or anyone there.

“Unless that changes quickly, a change has to be made.”

The three-time Gland Slam champion also claims Arsenal may have made a fault by not bringing in Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho, of course, now holds court across north London, having been drafted in by Tottenham as a wildcard replacement for Mauricio Pochettino last week.

“I love it when he’s in the Premier League”, Murray said of Mourinho, who is a big tennis fan and admitted earlier this year that the Brit’s first Wimbledon triumph reduced him to tears.

“I just think he makes it so much more interesting to be honest.

“I think he would do a good job for Arsenal.

“The one thing about him is that you know he will win. He finds ways to win matches, tournaments.

“That would have been a great appointment.”

Murray was speaking to talkSPORT ahead of the release of a new Amazon documentary, charting his remarkable return from injury.

The 32-year-old feared he would have to retire at the start of the year due to a chronic hip injury, but is now back playing at the top level again and is set to make his Grand Slam return at the Australian Open in January.
