Mauricio Pochettino urged to snub Manchester United and become next Arsenal manager.
Mauricio Pochettino would be a better fit as the next manager of Arsenal instead of Manchester United, according to Ally McCoist via the Daily Star.
Pochettino was recently fired by Tottenham as the team’s poor start to the season continued and speculation is rife as to which club he will manage next.
Several Arsenal fans were shocked that the former Southampton manager was fired before Unai Emery and they now wish to have the Argentinean as their new manager.
Pochettino has been a long term target of Manchester United and the Red Devils reportedly wanted him to replace Jose Mourinho last winter.
They eventually settled for Ole Gunnar Solkjear, but they have been linked with a move for him again after his sacking by Tottenham.
When asked which team he thought would be best for Poch to managed next McCoist insisted that Arsenal have the perfect squad for the former Espanyol boss.
“If you’re asking me, I think he’d suit Arsenal’s squad more than he’d suit Manchester United’s squad.
“I think there’s a group of players at Arsenal he could work with immediately.
“I think Manchester United’s a far bigger job, by that I mean long term, more of a rebuild.
“I think there are, at this moment in time, probably more players to work with at Arsenal. Manchester United fans might not agree with that.
“Yeah I do [think Emery is vulnerable]. I think he’s probably the most vulnerable, [Manuel] Pellegrini as well.”
Pochettino won’t have a shortage of takers but the former manager of Arsenal’s biggest rivals may have reservations over a move across town.
