Don’t Join Arsenal, Pochettino Warned By Man Utd Legend
Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has warned the former Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino to snub any approach from Arsenal to replace manager Unai Emery.
Pochettino who was earlier this week sacked by the Hotspurs was immediately replaced by Jose Mourinho.
However, the Argentine has been linked with the managerial job at Arsenal with Unai Emery position constantly being called into question.
The Gunners are currently eighth in the English Premier League (EPL) table, eight points off the top four.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said Pochettino’s success may be limited if he joins Arsenal.
He said: “Mauricio Pochettino will get linked with every single job in the next three months.
“I think he is in a position where he can select where he goes next, he’s in a strong position and his next job will be one of the super clubs in Europe.
“Arsenal would be interesting. It’s happened before George Graham going the other way. Would Spurs fans like that? Would Mauricio do that? Would Arsenal do that? I’m not sure Mauricio would want to do something like that to Spurs.
“Taking over at Arsenal would be similar to the job he just left at Tottenham, in the sense that there is some investment and spending, but it’s limited.
“He’s not going to go to Arsenal and win the league in the next two years. Whatever the next job Mauricio takes, he will want to win trophies, that will be the most important factor in the decision.”
