Arsenal board really do not want to hire Jose Mourinho as Unai Emery replacement.
The Arsenal board is hoping things get better under Emery so they are not forced into hiring the Portuguese manager.
However, the media hasn’t stopped linking them to the former Chelsea boss. The 56 years old is actively looking for his next managerial position, thus the speculation.
Mourinho, who owns a house in London has been linked with a move to the Emirates, but the club’s board is understood to be against appointing him as their next manager.
Reports from Express Sports claims that although the Arsenal are dissatisfied with Emery, they have a number of reservations about hiring Mourinho.
First, Mourinho doesn’t play an attractive brand of football. Even though he gets the job done and wins trophies he doesn’t care about the entertainment side of the game. Arsenal fans simply will not take to his style of football.
Secondly, he has a way of dividing any club he manages. The Arsenal board cannot afford such a character at the moment. Every time Mourinho has managed a club he has left them less-peaceful than when he joined them. That is not a scenario the board will relish.
Thirdly, the structure at Arsenal doesn’t suit him. The former Real Madrid boss likes to get his own way. When he does not out goes the toys from the pram.
Arsenal would be better off with a manager that can unify the club, not a divisive figure like Jose Mourinho.
I can think of a few more reasons as we have already highlighted but some fans do want the Special one. That is how bad it is at Arsenal right now.
