Pochettino could replace Emery at Arsenal, says Redknapp

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino could take over at their north London rivals Arsenal, according to ex-Spurs manager Harry Redknapp.

“With Pochettino going from Tottenham, there will be one or two Premier League managers waking up this morning thinking, ‘oh my God, this ain’t too clever’,” Redknapp told TalkSPORT.

“And there will be one or two chairmen very excited this morning thinking if there’s any way they could get him in. What a signing he’d be.

“There are clubs in London who are having a terrible time. Why shouldn’t he go to Arsenal if he wants to? You think the Arsenal fans wouldn’t love him there?

“If you go in there and start winning football matches, they would have taken Saddam Hussein in there when he was about, the fans don’t give a monkey’s! If you start winning every week, they’re singing ‘there’s only one Saddam’.

“It happens in football – Sol Campbell went from Tottenham to Arsenal, George Graham did it, Terry Neill did it, Pat Jennings, one of our greatest goalkeepers in history, even he made the change.

“It can happen, as long as you can do the job. I would have thought Arsenal will be looking at Pochettino now thinking, ‘could we? Can we?’”
