Could Pochettino actually make the switch?
Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly ‘ruling nothing out’ amid links with the Arsenal job after Unai Emery’s sacking.
Arsenal are on the lookout for a new manager after Emery was relieved of his duties on Friday.
Following the 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, Freddie Ljungberg was placed in charge of the first team temporarily.
Rather surprisingly, Mauricio Pochettino is one of them.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs midway through the international break last week, having drawn with Sheffield United in his last game.
Now, it’s been suggested that Pochettino is ‘ruling nothing out’ amid links to Arsenal.
Pochettino ‘ruling nothing out’
According to Independent reporter Miguel Delaney, a few people who know Pochettino maintain he is ‘ruling nothing out’.
Delaney also explains that Pochettino ‘is a bit put out by how things finished with Spurs’.
Re Arsenal, a few who know Poch maintain he is “ruling nothing out”, and is a bit put out by how things finished with Spurs.
Whether that actually extends to actually crossing the divide – and so infuriating fans he has a great relationship with – is another matter.

Unfortunately, Delaney doesn’t go much more in-depth with his tweet, only explaining that it remains to be seen whether he would be willing to accept the Arsenal job.
Considering his comments back in 2017, it looks very unlikely that Pochettino would go back on his word.
However, if Pochettino is still somewhat upset about how he was sacked, feelings could change rather quickly.
