Time to deflate all these Jose Mourinho to Arsenal rumours

Jose Mourinho to Arsenal is nothing more than fake news

For some reason, the internet has gone into meltdown over the possibility of Jose Mourinho taking over from Unai Emery.

I say for some reason but it is fairly easy to work out how the speculation went into overdrive yesterday.

From what I can see it started with a tweet from a fake Sky Italy account under the name Antonio Russo. This “person” claimed that Emery would be sacked within days.

Well, it turns out that no such person called Antonio Russo works at Sky Italia and even if there was why would that person actually be living in London as the Twitter account claims. Also, the picture is of former Sky Sports presenter Andy Steggall. You literally could not make this up. Actually, they just did.

The first outlet that exposed this from what I can see was Red London.

Then there are the rumours that Mourinho dined with Raul Sanllehi last night as so lavishly reported by the Mirror citing The Times.

Now, according to Sky Sports, no such meeting has ever taken place and they have not spoken in years.

In better words, the Mirror, the Times and all the others are telling outright lies.

So, there is no real source claiming Emery is set to be sacked, there was no meeting between Mourinho and Sanllehi but such is the toxic atmosphere around Emery that it seems anything that points to him leaving Arsenal is jumped on with immediate effect.


  1. Mourinho was shown on tv in a box at our game last week with Raul.
    Don’t want him at Arsenal but he’s incoming….get ready for more chaos,

    1. No Mourinho was there and shown on TV but Raul wasn’t. There is a picture doing the rounds, of Mourinho sat there with a guy standing with his back to him with wavy hair like Raul, but have seen photos taken from the other side (when both sat down) and it’s not him 🤷‍♂️

    1. Yeah, but at least United lost too! Makes me feel a little better 🙂

      I think we around 9 points lower at this stage of the season than we were last year at this time. NOT GOOD!! That is not top 5 or 6 form let alone top 4 🙁

      1. Makes you feel better just cause united lost? How about we all become satisfied with staying 6th or 7th as long as United and Spurs are below us? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

        1. Agree, It is not a trio competition with utd and spurs, I care that we win before picking on them.

      2. Manchester United are something else, they can beat any team on there day unlike Arsenal. Manchester United can go into Over drive and demolish who ever is in there way, i envy there level of motivation at times,the spirit to fight on.
        I just wonder why we keep on attracting and returning the same kind of players at Arsenal (weak, slim, short, no fighting spirit etc). We need to start buying players who are physically and mentally strong, the YAYA TOURE type. Players who can win us matches before we even kick the ball. Come on Arsenal we can do better.

    2. Just watched the game, they are very comfortable in possession, quick and technical when attacking, pressing as a team, in short everything we should be lol.
      Next week everyone needs to bring their A game. Although I’m convinced win or lose Emery won’t be sacked. He is gonna be around until the end of this season.

      1. Brendan Rodgers was rightly lauded for his style of play when managing Swansea. I remember commentators saying how much they played like Arsenal and even out-Arsenaled us when they beat us that season. So the form of Leicester isn’t really surprising. However, Mourinho taking over from Emery mid-season would be a massive shock given the lack of spending power and more importantly, the pragmatic anti-style of football he is renowned for.

        Let’s wait until summer and give a better manager a chance.

  2. Agree with gr. I fear the foxes speedy play will be too much for the gunners. The gunners will win big in mid week and concede 5 goals next weekend.
    If the gunners continue to struggle in the epl the rumours about
    the special one will become reality.

  3. Come on, Everton paid good money for them and we have the talent of the century, Martinelli!!
    Bukayo Saka too, such exciting prospects.

  4. Mourihno couldn’t help make Ferguson transition, has a awful style and would be a complete madness.

    Wenger can not be replaced like that, to refuse him money to get Suarez and Kante in 2014 & 2015 were the biggest mistake from this cheap owner. We then slipped behind teams from that point, 2016 no champions league as a result, instead to be champions with those 2 players!

    Wenger didn’t get money Emery was given! He had 40M per window and missed on these 2 players for 5M short bet! Wenger plan was to start a new victory era after paying stadium June 2013. But he was denied Suarez who wanted and had agreed to his contract!
    Same for Kante year later.

    They ruined it all then and no way to compete with other teams! Kroenke greedy cowboys!

  5. Emery loses to Leicster this week and hes gone.. there is managers out there that we could bring in, just not Jose!

    Allegri, Enrique or even another premier league manager in Wilder or someone with the balls to shake this lot and for them to even understand.
