Unai Emery spoke to Alexandre Lacazette about controlling his frustration after he was sent off for Arsenal in the Europa League.
The Arsenal star man was shown a straight red card for an elbow on Aleksandar Filipovic late on in the Gunners’ 1-0 defeat by BATE Borisov in the competition’s round of 32.
Lacazette took to Twitter following the defeat to apologise to the Arsenal fans, while Emery addressed the red card in his
post-match press conference.
The Arsenal boss said: “I didn’t see the action but we spoke and [his] frustration needs controlling. It’s bad news with the
“Next week we aren’t going to play with him but now we are going to think with the players that are OK for next week.”
Lacazette will miss the return leg, which Arsenal must win by at least two goals to have any chance of going through.
