Nigeria fans are apparently excited by Arsenal's decision to sack Unai Emery as the club's manager on Friday.

After their 2-1 home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, the Gunners released a statement that they had parted ways with Emery and his coaching crew, 18 months after he took over at the helm.

The club's decision came as a relief for Nigerians who saw it as the right step after their seven-game winless streak across all competitions, with assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg tasked to oversee the first-team in an interim role.
