Arsenal fans are desperate for the club to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as the club’s new manager after they were asked whether they would take the Argentine.
Pochettino was sacked as manager of Tottenham Hotspur last night, and that left fan channel AFTV asking the fans if they would like to see the coach at the club.
Should Arsenal have appointed Jose Mourinho?
Fans were excited at the possibility of seeing him in the Emirates Stadium dugout, with one referencing Sol Campbell’s infamous move to the Reds in 2001.
He would be as successful as Sol Campbell was 😉

A move to the red half of north London could well be a mere fantasy after Pochettino confirmed he couldn’t imagine himself at Arsenal due to his time with Spurs (via The Guardian)
The 47-year-old enjoyed a successful end to last season as he led Spurs to their first-ever Champions League final despite losing to Liverpool in the showpiece event.
He boasts the second-highest points per game ratio of any Spurs manager (1.89) in the Premier League era and managed them in the second-most games in European competitions (53) (via BBC).
Fans took to Twitter to highlight that they would take Pochettino despite his time with their fierce rivals.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:

Mourinho to Spurs. Pochettino to Arsenal. Emery to West Ham. Let’s do this properly.
