Arsenal fans are over the moon after Luis Enrique confirmed that he had talks with a ‘foreign club’ over their managerial role.
The former Barcelona manager was reported to have held talks with Gunners chief Raul Sanllehi about taking over as manager from Unai Emery (via El Confidencial).
Would Nuno Espirito Santo be a good appointment for Arsenal?
However, the 49-year-old seemingly turned down the ‘foreign club’ in favour of taking back his old job as manager of the Spain national team.
Unai Emery has struggled recently having won none of his last six games across all competitions, leaving him on the brink of getting sacking, according to Goal.
Fans were happy that Enrique wasn’t named their new manager after he confirmed that he did receive an offer from a club, as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Good that he didn’t come
