The great Debate! Arsenal told to ‘ditch Unai Wenger’ and bring in pure winner Mourinho
Adrien Durham has sensationally claimed that Arsenal should ditch Unai Emery and bring in former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.
After years and years of calling for Arsene Wenger to be sacked, the French legend decided to give up his job at the Emirates the season before last and Arsenal shocked everyone by bringing in PSG boss Emery.
The Spaniard had the credentials and a history of winning trophies, so it was seen as a decent signing by the Gunners, and after reaching the Europa League final last season, spending a ton of money in the summer, big things have been expected by Emery this season.
But it is widely claimed the deal contains a break clause that can be triggered after two seasons, enabling the club to dismiss him one year early if he does not get the club where they want them to be, and Durham believes Arsenal should ditch their boss at the end of the season and bring in Mourinho, saying the Special One can ‘shake up’ the Gunners and fix their team.
“Time is running out for Unai Emery,” said the Drivetime host.
“He’s coming up to the end of the two years and there is no difference to the darkest days under Arsene Wenger.They conceded more chances to Watford than they did in the 8-2 at Man United.
“So these are just as bad these times for Arsenal and they are nowhere nearer challenging for the title than they were in those latter years under Wenger.
“It’s a fanbase and a club that is living a delusion that their players are really good. “The midfield and the defending is not good enough and I’m not even sure about the goalkeeper. It looks like they’re not being coached correctly or told the right things.
“Something drastic needs to be done.
“You know who they need? Jose Mourinho. He would be perfect for Arsenal, and he’s a free agent! Their fans would hate me saying it, but can you see it getting better under Unai Wenger? I cant.
“They need somebody who will go in there and shake the club up – Mourinho is exactly what they need!
“He would 100 per cent take that job, this is the job he’s been looking for. This is what Arsenal need – Jose Mourinho in charge.”
Emery needs time to get things right, but he has done himself no favours with the kind of signings he has been making. But if he fails to get the job done this season, win a trophy or get back inside the top four, then Arsenal should seriously consider bringing in a new boss.
But bringing in Mourinho would be a shock, as he would cost a fortune, does not play the kind of football that fans enjoy and is a firm legend over at Chelsea.
However, if Arsenal want to win things, then Mourinho could be the answer, at least for a few seasons.
