Roberto Martinez rejected meeting for Arsenal manager’s job – Mirror

As per a report from the Mirror, Belgian national team manager Roberto Martinez opted against holding a meeting with the Arsenal board, over the club’s managerial post.

Emery dismissed

The situation surrounding the hotseat at the Emirates stadium has proven one of the main talking points throughout the European football media over the last two weeks.

This comes after a disastrous opening to the campaign, culminating in a 7-game winless streak across all competitions, eventually cost Unai Emery his job in north London late last month.

Ljungberg’s start

Club legend Freddie Ljungberg was subsequently appointed interim Arsenal boss, with the reliable David Ornstein having confirmed that the possibility of the Swede being handed the role on a permanent basis can’t be ruled out:

Ljungberg has since gone on to guide Arsenal to 1 draw, 1 defeat and 1 win in his 3 league fixtures in charge of his former club, with his first 3-point haul having come this past Monday, at capital rivals West Ham.

Martinez snub

Nevertheless, though, the widespread assumption remains that the Arsenal hierarchy will opt to appoint an alternative tactician as the club’s new permanent boss over the coming weeks.

The likes of Mauricio PochettinoMax Allegri and Patrick Vieira have all been linked with the post of late.

But, as per the aforementioned report from the Mirror, another potential candidate for the post has opted to rule himself out of the running to replace Unai Emery.

The individual in question? Roberto Martinez.

It is claimed that Belgium boss Martinez, along with Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers, turned down the chance to meet with the Arsenal board, over the club’s managerial role.

This comes amid concerns that those in charge of transfers at the Emirates would not be willing to perform the type of squad overhaul that many feel is necessary in north London.
