Luis Enrique To Take Over As Arsenal Manager


Arsenal are said to have given Unai Emery a month to save his job.

The Gunners boss has overseen a downturn in form of late, with a 2-0 loss against Leicester before the international break pouring on the pressure.

Emery’s side are without a win in four Premier League games, and are now eight points off the top four with just 12 games played.

There has been lots of speculation about whether the Gunners will part ways with the Spanish coach – and who could replace him if he does leave the Emirates Stadium.

One of those frequently named has been former Barcelona and Spain head coach Luis Enrique.

Here’s what we know so far about the talk surrounding the former midfielder and a possible move to north London.

Arsenal have been eager to deny links with Jose Mourinho already this month.

And they may have to start talking about whether or not they are in talks with Luis Enrique soon, too.

According to  El Confidencial , Enrique is a candidate to take over at the Emirates if Emery is sacked.

Furthermore, Spanish journalist Kike Marin has indicated on his official Twitter page that there has been contact between enrique and Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi.

Marin said that Sanllehi was “looking for a substitute” and that there had been talks with Enrique over being that replacement.

What Enqrique has said about managing in England

Luis Enrique has been linked with a job in England before.

He was once linked with taking over at Reading in 2013 and was asked about that during a Q&A with magazine FourFourTwo .

He said: “”I was cycling in South Africa when I got a call about Reading.

“It was gossip, I never spoke to them. I’d like to manage in England at some point.

“My wife wouldn’t like the weather, she’s from Barcelona and likes the sun. It would depend on the team and the football they played.”
