Report: Jose Mourinho ‘open’ to replacing Unai Emery as Arsenal manager

Jose Mourinho would reportedly be willing to replace Unai Emery as manager of Arsenal.

ESPN say sources have told them the Portuguese would be interested in the job if it became available, with Emery under some pressure at the moment.

Arsenal don’t have immediate plans to get rid of the Spaniard, but it’s a testing period for the 47-year-old who has been criticised for his tactics and lack of leadership in certain situations.

Mourinho, who lives in London, has been out of managerial work since getting sacked by Manchester United in December and has been undertaking punditry work with Sky Sports.

He has been linked with Real Madrid, but apparently the chance to win trophies with three different English clubs appeals.


The report comes off the back of Mourinho being spotted at the Emirates Stadium for the recent Europa League clash with Vitoria.

TBR’s view – Ruthless Mourinho could be perfect for Arsenal

One major criticism of Emery from the Arsenal fans is that he doesn’t have the authority needed to manage a top club.

He has not handled the Granit Xhaka situation well and didn’t cover himself in much glory over the Laurent Koscielny debacle.

Mourinho’s trophy record is undeniable, and he could well be the ruthless leader the club has been lacking for years.

If Emery loses his job, Mourinho as his replacement could potentially turn the club into a force again.
