Mauricio Pochettino is among the favourites to replace struggling Unai Emery at Arsenal.
Arsenal may be unable to name former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino as their manager after he was sacked by the Lilywhites.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs this month after five years at the North London side.
The Argentinean didn’t win a trophy for the club but he changed their history, making them a consistent top-four side and also helped them reach the Champions League final last season.
Jose Mourinho was named as his replacement this week, and some Arsenal fans have been calling for their team to hire him.
Unai Emery is currently struggling to get wins from his Arsenal players and it seems only a matter of time before he will be sacked, but it unlikely that Pochettino will be his replacement.
According to reports in the media including the Express, there is a possibility than Poch may have signed an agreement not to manage Tottenham’s fierce rivals as well as any other top side in the Premier League.
Arsenals’ board has recently come out to back Unai Emery but their draw against Southampton at the weekend shows that things aren’t getting better and it is a wonder how much more mediocrity they can take before firing the former PSG man.
A clause like this is very possible, whether there was one in Pochettino’s contract I suspect is pure speculation.
I just feel that with everything the way it is at the moment it will be very unlikely that the former Tottenham coach will become the new Arsenal manager.
