Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has thrown out a controversial name the Gunners should be looking at as their next manager.
“There’s no need to panic at Arsenal, we are getting close to panic by the way, because we’re not having the best of seasons, but the powers that be at the top of the club should be seriously considering [Mauricio] Pochettino,” he told the Daily Mail.
“I have a lot of admiration for what he did at Tottenham, the way he nurtured those young players and he didn’t spend a great deal of money. I don’t think Tottenham spent enough.
“I would have stayed with Pochettino. I think he deserved that. I think it’s a hugely significant sacking. You’re going to have managers now looking over their shoulders.
Could Arsenal really get Pochettino?
Obviously Pochettino is a top class manager and would be a fantastic appointment for any team in the world, including Arsenal. However, it’s simply not going to happen.
Now, would you rather manage Bayern or Arsenal? Don’t answer that, there’s no need. So the Gunners would be competing with plenty of other top teams for his services, as well.
