- Unai Emery accused his girlfriend of witchcraft after he was sacked as Arsenal boss
- Sacha Wright claims the Spaniard blamed her for bringing him back luck after losing his job
- The former Paris Saint-Germain manager was replaced by his compatriot Mikel Arteta
Unai Emery was sacked as Arsenal boss in November 2019 and the Spanish coach claims because his girlfriend was a witch resulted in his dismissal.
After 18 months in charge at the Emirates, as well as strings of bad results, the former Sevilla boss was shown the door and was replaced by Mikel Arteta.
Emery's former partner Sacha Wright who is 15 years younger than he is finally broke her silence and explained what happened during that period.
Sacha claimed they broke up last September and reconciled in December after Emery was sacked by Arsenal.
"It was then that he blamed me for getting him the sack," she told the Sun on Sunday. "He told me I was a white witch as I had brought him so much bad luck.
"He said, 'It was the day we broke up that we started to lose'.
"He told me he was so stressed out that his mind wasn’t in the right place after we separated.
"I flew out to meet him in San Sebastian just before New Year’s Eve and it was then that he blamed me for Arsenal losing.
"I trusted Unai and really believed we would get married and have kids together one day.
"I thought he was a gentleman and a real family man. But in the end I realised he was not ready for a serious relationship."
The 33-year-old talked about Emery's passion for the game while they were still together.
"We would meet up after most games and sometimes during the week too," she added. "If the team had not been playing well he would tell me, 'I'm having a tough time. It’s very stressful at the moment'.
"He was always watching football and checking the results.
"He would even lie in bed with one game on his computer and another one on his tablet. This would be in the morning and also right before we went to sleep.
"It was bit annoying but it was his routine and I accepted it."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Zinedine Zidane's red card at the 2006 World Cup final for France did not go down well with teammate Willy Sagnol.
The former Bayern Munich defender revealed that he ignored his compatriot for two years despite tendering his apologies in the dressing room.
Zidane headbutted Marco Materazzi in an off the ball incident against Italy and Les Bleues eventually lost to the Azzurri on penalties.
