BREAKING: Arsenal squad to fly out for a warm weather camp following Europa League Round of 16

According to what has been reported by Football London, Arsenal squad will fly out for a warm weather camp at Dubai following their Europa League Round of 16 second leg against Stade Rennes at Emirates Stadium.

Gunners lost the first match at Roazhon Park 3-1 and are now under a pressure ahead of the second leg.

Unai Emery’s side will face Manchester United this weekend. Following the home match against Rennes, Gunners will not be involved in action until April 1, when they will face Newcastle.

Emery has decided to travel to Dubai with the squad to continue training session there.

Arsenal head coach said after the defeat in Europa League (via Football London): “The habit is to play a lot of matches during the weeks. It’s not an excuse.

“If you ask me if I prefer sometimes more time to prepare one match? Maybe yes. But we don’t have an excuse because we’ve had time to prepare well.”

The Arsenal players have been informed about the upcoming training camp, which will see the squad fly to Dubai due to the club’s sponsorship agreement with Emirates.
