Mauricio Pochettino keeps the door open for Arsenal move with latest comments

Mauricio Pochettino non denial keeps Arsenal door open.

Arsenal may be lucky enough to land a major blow on their biggest rivals, Tottenham by naming Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager.

The Gunners have been without a permanent manager for their last two matchdays after they fired Unai Emery.

They have named Freddie Ljungberg as their temporary manager but the Swede has failed to turn things around.

They were beaten 2-1 by Brighton at home the last time out and it seems only a matter of time before they name a permanent manager.

Former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino remains one of their major targets for the job and the Argentinean hasn’t publicly ruled out taking over at the Emirates.

Pochettino is currently on holiday in Argentina after his sacking by Spurs but he plans to be back in London in a few days time to start considering offers.

Poch was recently asked about the possibility of him crossing over from Spurs but he remained coy with his response.

He told TyC Sports via the Mirror: “It’s important to have a moment of calm to lower the decibels and find the energy to take on a new project, and we’ll see where that is.”

“I’m going to spend a few days here [in Rosario] with my family and friends, and then I’ll return to London next week.”

    Sign up Duncan Ferguson! Never lost a game as a manager.

    Looking at our situation now, Pochetino is our best option left now.

    Rafa is already employed,
    Allegri is too expensive for us to maintain,
    Rodgers just signed a new deal with Leicester,
    Arteta is too much of an experiment that we don’t need to do,
    And other coaches like Marco Rose etc are in the same boat as Arteta, we don’t have time to play around like we did with Emery.

    Let’s get tried and tested within The EPL, Pochetino ticks all the boxes

    Let’s pounce before Bayern Munich does.

      Don’t forget about Nuno

      He has his own style and Arsenal could weaken Wolves by hijacking him

      1. CannonSpike says:

        Nuno is a good coach but is not tried and tested in a top 6 team.

        Our current situation doesn’t allow us to experiment a d take chances. We will lose players and continue dropping down to the relegation zone with all these fantastical ideas and experiments.

        Pochetino can at the very least hold us in the top 6 for the remainder of the season.

        We don’t have the luxury for these Fantasy Football Manager ideas. Pochetino fits the bill, and he’s unemployed, Arsenal must fork out as much as we can to save this team.

        Any other coach anyone mentions doesn’t have the solid evidence to prove they can do the job for Arsenal more than Pochetino does. All those suggestions are just wishful thinking and speculations.

    I bet he has offers from Arsenal, Man United and Everton. But I believe Arsenal are the front-runner, because they have no manager currently and the club is bigger than Everton

    1. GB says:

      Nuno will be too expensive as Wolves have option of extra year on his contract which I don’t think we will pay.

  4. Break-on-through says:

    I don’t think Pochettino wants the Arsenal job, just keeping his options open like Rodgers did before getting that bump in pay. After everything he’s said I doubt that he’d want it unless it was the only good offer on table. And why are we always calling him Poch like it’s a term of endearment, we need a better coach. Sure he’s always fallen way short of the Invincible Maker, Monsieur Arsene Wenger.

    Tiny Totts showed him zero loyalty when a candidate for silverware came along.

    1. CannonSpike says:

      Now please share with us your great wisdom.

      Which better viable coach must we get?

      Who has good EPL experience, and knows how to build up a poor team into a good team?

    O T

    Stan’s cash cow running out of milk ;

    Arsenal have published their accounts for the year ending May 31 2019 – showing a £30million loss in matchday revenue.

    The Gunners have gone from a pre-tax profit of £97.4million to a pre-tax loss of £23.5million

    This move ain’t happening any time soon
    Allegri,Brendan Rogers, Nagelsmann,Nuno and Poch are all off

    1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

      Who is still in the list then?

  7. Sabs says:

    I still would much prefer Leonardo Jardim considering our business model of buying cheap and buying very rough gems.
    I would also like Antonio Conte because of his man-management skills as is evident now at Inter. His record is stellar from Juve to the Azzuri and now Inter, even at Chelsea it wasn’t that bad.
    I would consider Julian Nagelsmann, his record is also good considering his youth. I, however, doubt that KSE would buy any coach out of their contract so we may penultimately land with an Arteta experiment which I dread because I don’t see the “Pep” in him that everyone is dreaming of.
    Buying a coach out of their contract and backing them in the winter transfer with at least two signings like say Arturo Vidal and a Daniel Rugani would signal serious intent from the club and it would hopefully also lift the mood in our dressing room and propel us to better things in the second half of the season but that’s just wishful thinking.
