Jose Mourinho to replace Emery at Arsenal? It could happen, but should it?

Jose Mourinho to replace Emery at Arsenal? It could happen.

According to ESPN FC, Jose Mourinho is open to replacing Unai Emery as Arsenal boss should the vacancy become available.

Emery is hanging on to his job by a thread. The Spaniard is struggling to get Arsenal into the top 4 for the second year running — the team lacks a clear identity, system, and a consistent starting lineup.

Emery is also facing fan criticism for freezing out Ozil when the team is in need of a creative spark, and for selecting the mercurial Granit Xhaka as captain.

Asked if he’s to blame on the team’s struggles, Emery responded: “We are responsible, the club and I.”

Enter Jose Mourinho?

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss has been a pundit for Sky sports since his dismissal from Old Trafford last December.

But Mourinho is reportedly open to the idea of a return to management as he “wants to be the first boss to win at three English clubs.”

While Mourinho’s negativity and counter-attacking football may be at odds with the openness and artful philosophy of a club molded by Arsene Wenger, Mourinho is a serial winner.

The choice between staying a midtable team and winning trophies with the man who once called Wenger a “specialist in failure” will sting Arsenal fans.

“Boring, boring Jose” could soon become the preference given the reoccurring struggles Arsenal face with Unai Emery in charge.
