Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka, has revealed that coach Unai Emery and the players didn’t speak in the dressing room after their defeat to Chelsea in the Europa League final on Wednesday.
Arsenal suffered a disappointing 4-1 defeat to their London rivals at the Baku Olympic Stadium.
Two goals from Eden Hazard, and one each from Pedro and Olivier Giroud sealed the victory for the Blues.
The Gunners would have qualified to play Champions League football in next season, had they won.
Xhaka has revealed that players and the manager felt gloomy in the dressing room after the humiliating defeat.
“Him (Emery), the players, nobody speaks in the dressing room,” he said.
When asked why Emery was silent, he added: “I don’t know. He was disappointed of course.
“I think we know what we played. We know we lost the game. It is not about shouting. It is not about shouting everything if we lose.
“You can say a lot now but it is not the time to explain why and what happens. I think it was a big chance for us and we don’t take it.”
The Swiss international further stated that it was painful to end the season without a title.
“Yeah, of course because I think we had a good season – if you take off the five last games in the Premier League.
“We had a second chance to come back and go to the Champions League but if you don’t take your chances, you will stay in the Europa League.
“You can say a lot now but it is not the time to explain why and what happens. We lost today. I don’t want to speak about the last five weeks or 10 weeks. “I think today was a big chance for us, we didn’t take it.” he also said.
