Following the shock sacking of Mauricio Pochettino by Tottenham Hotspur chiefs, Arsenal fans have began to put more pressure on the Gunners board to follow suit by axing Unai Emery.
Just like adding fuel to fire, the sacking of Spurs boss has sparked up an even greater call from Arsenal fans worldwide for the board to axe Emery immediately and replace him with the former Southampton boss Pochettino.
Here are four reasons why their call for a change is justifiable.
He has more Premier League experience
You might argue that this is just Emery’s second season in England and he needs time to settle.
Why that is true, you may also want to know that signing Pochettino will fast track the “time” needed to grasp the Premier League, and instantly place Arsenal within a clear chance of actually playing in the Champions League and fighting for the League under the tutelage of a manager who has the experience and has worked his way up there to be regarded as a big Premier League coach.
He is great at discovering young talents
In what is in line with our philosophy at Arsenal, discovering fantastic talents is something Poch is well known for from his days in Southampton.
Stars of today such as Sadio Mane, Harry Kane, Son, Dele Ali, Kieran Trippier, Harry Winks, to mention a few cannot talk about their success story without mentioning the help of Pochettino.
With Arsenal currently experiencing an increase in the number of talented academy products, having a manager such as Poch will be the best move the club will make in terms of grooming these young talents and giving them a chance to break into the first team.
He can work with little or no budget
Without a doubt, Poch has proven that he can work with little or no funds provided to him.
Over the last 3-4 transfer windows, the former Saints boss has been left with little or no budget to strengthen his squad due to the financial situation going on at Tottenham with bulk of their revenue going into their new stadium.
During this period, Pochettino managed to keep the club not just in the top four of the League but also playing Champions League football and even within whiskers of lifting the title.
He also came close to winning the Premier League as well. And helped Spurs finish above Arsenal for the first time in 21-years (if that is any achievement).
It was very clear for everyone to see. If Poch had stayed longer and was given funds to strengthen his squad, he would have guided Spurs to their first trophy in donkey years.
His style of play suits us
Attacking football, great tactics, good balance in defence, these are some of the areas Pochettino has improved Spurs over the years to turn them from a middle table team to a side constantly playing Champions League football.
If he truly wasn’t playing great football, Arsenal fans will not be clamouring for his signature that’s for sure.
