What Emery told Lacazette after red card against BATE

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has said he spoke to Alexandre Lacazette about controlling his frustration, after he was sent off during their 1-0 defeat to BATE, in the Europa League on Thursday.

Lacazette was shown a straight red card for an elbow on Aleksandar Filipovic late on in the match.

“I didn’t see the action but we spoke and [his] frustration needs controlling. It’s bad news with the red card.

“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,” Emery told reporters after the game in Borisov.

Lacazette will miss the return leg, which Arsenal must win by at least two goals to have any chance of going through.
