Arsenal fans were elated after reports over Mauricio Pochettino potentially taking over at the club emerged.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Argentine is under serious consideration in regards to taking over from Unai Emery and is thought to be open to taking the job.
Would Massimiliano Allegri be a good appointment for Arsenal?
Pochettino did, obviously, manage the side’s fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur for five and a half years before he was sacked.
He also went as far as saying he would never manage a rival of any club he is the manager of, making any appointment at the Emirates Stadium controversial (via talkSPORT).
The above would also include Barcelona, having managed their rivals Espanyol during his time in La Liga.
Arsenal are looking for a new head coach after they sacked Emery from the role last Friday. The Spaniard oversaw the club’s worst run of form since 1992 (via BBC) with the club failing to win six games across all competitions after their loss to Eintracht Frankfurt.
Fans were left excited over the potential appointment of Pochettino as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
