'Arsenal should be seriously considering Pochettino'

EPL: Unai Emery to be sacked next as Spurs appoint Mourinho

"There's no need for panic at Arsenal, we are getting close but the people at the top of the club should be considering Pochettino", Keown said while speaking at a Sportsmail event in London.

The Gunners are now sixth in the table - eight points off fourth-placed Manchester City - and Keown says the club's board needs to consider head coach Unai Emery's future.

Whether Pochettino would even consider moving to his old club's rivals however remains to be seen.

Keown's belief that Arsenal should snap up Pochettino following his Tottenham departure is shared by Arsenal fan - and Spurs-goader - Piers Morgan.

"Unai Emery's side start the day eight points off fourth place in the table and I think this is a must win game for the Gunners' boss given Saints sit just one point and one place off the foot of the table".

Jose Mourinho arrived as the new head coach less than 12 hours later, but Keown says the Argentine deserved more time.

Talking on talkSPORT Redknapp, a former Spurs boss, said, "With Pochettino going from Tottenham, there will be one or two Premier League managers waking up this morning thinking, "oh my god, this ain't too clever". Real Madrid would take him, I think Arsenal would have to look at him".


"I know the poor record he has recently, but I still would have given him another chance". A lot of chairmen will want him.

Holding is hoping to be involved heavily, after battling back from a bad knee injury suffered against Manchester United last December.

All these instances have led to certain sections of the Arsenal fan base calling for manager Unai Emer to get the sack having failed to take the team forward in the post-Arsene Wenger era.

It comes a month after the Swiss worldwide stormed off the pitch and telling fans to "f*** off" when substituted off in Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last month.

The dismissal comes as Gunners manager Unai Emery continues to fight for his own job with the club without a win in their past five matches. He seems to be out of his depth.

"However, Pochettino is now available".

Arsenal signed six new players in the summer transfer window but they've been unable to elevate the Gunners to another level.
