Arsenal fans are in disbelief that Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked as the manager of Tottenham Hotspur before Unai Emery has been by the Gunners.
The Argentine has made way for Jose Mourinho despite guiding the club to their first-ever Champions League final last season.
Should Arsenal have appointed Jose Mourinho?
Meanwhile, Emery oversaw a dreadful end to the 2018/2019 campaign as the Gooners failed to finish in the top-four and were battered by Chelsea in the Europa League final.
Emery hasn’t enjoyed the best of campaigns this term either, with the red half of north London sitting eight points adrift of the top-four places after just 12 Premier League games, and fans are now fuming at their hierarchy for allowing Spurs to be more ambitious than them.
Pochettino didn’t enjoy the best of starts to this campaign with Spurs sitting 14th in the top-flight. He did warn the club they would need a ‘painful’ rebuild, but the Lilywhites bought just four players during the summer, and then made the brutal decision to axe their charismatic boss.
Fans were in disbelief that Pochettino was sacked before Emery as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

Pochettino actually got sacked before Emery, what kind of world do we live in?

Spurs are only 3 points behind us with a better GD and they still sacked Pochettino who got top 4 and reached a CL final recently.
We are either far too broke to sack Emery no matter what he does, or the Arsenal hierarchy are really clueless cowards (probably both).

Emery outstayed Pochettino! Who’d have thought!
