SWITZERLAND, OCTOBER 31 – Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is open to taking over at Arsenal in case his services are enquired according to reports.
The owners of Arsenal may now be considering him after a string of poor performances by Unai Emery, including a loss to Liverpool in the Carabao cup on Wednesday.
The 56-year old was relieved of his duties last December at United and has been based in London, working as a pundit. Unai Emery is currently in charge of the gunners but is facing immense pressure with some calls from fans to have him replaced. Emery is seemingly losing his dressing room and the results aren’t backing him up, the latest being a disappoint 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace.
Jose has coached 6 clubs since 2001, winning precious trophies in all of them including back to back League titles with Chelsea, Fc Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid with his major shortcoming occuring at Old Trafford where he attained a 6th and 2nd place finish but went on to win the Europa League in 2017.
Mourinho is said to be interested in rebuilding the Arsenal side but again his football style will worry the Emirates faithful. Arsenal, as confirmed by Bellerin few days ago, have their culture in how they play with Arsene Wenger instilling a tiki-taka build-up system in his long stay in London which has become accustomed to the gunners.
Mourinho on the other side isn’t a big fan of entertainment but rather prefers getting results and has over the years won titles using a defensive approach across England , Spain, Italy and Portugal.
However, at the moment winning titles would really excite Arsenal and should Emery get the sack, we could see one of footballs most decorated managers take over in London.
