Unai Emery ex-girlfriend says “blamed her for getting him sacked and called her a white witch”

April 24, 2020

AN ex-girlfriend of former Arsenal manager Unai Emery says he branded her the “white witch” — blaming her for his team’s bad form that got him sacked.

He claimed their turbulent relationship and frequent rows were responsible for an embarrassing winless run that got him axed from the club last November.

Sacha Wright has opened up for the first time about her two-year romance with the 48-year-old Spaniard which ended last month.

She also told how he used Google Translate on dates after matches and would keep her up all night — watching two games of football at once in bed.

Sacha, 35, told The Sun on Sunday: “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.” Sacha dumped Unai last September just two months before he was given the boot by Arsenal.

She took him back in December but added: “It was then that he blamed me for getting him the sack. 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.”

Sacha’s revelations shine a light on the troubled Unai era that saw the Gunners sink further below arch rivals Tottenham in the Premier League and lose out on a lucrative Champions League place.
