Jose Mourinho news

Emery could be sacked with Leicester defeat

Arsenal could seriously consider Jose Mourinho for the head coach role, should they succumb to a Premier League defeat at Leicester City this weekend.

The Gunners have bagged just two points from the past three league games and they are already six points behind the Champions League places after 11 matches into the season.

According to The Mirror, Unai Emery's position is under serious consideration and he could be sacked, should the Gunners succumb to a defeat at the King Power Stadium this weekend.

It is added that Mourinho remains the leading candidate on the club's shortlist of managerial targets and he could be appointed shortly after the Foxes game in case the club suffer a third league loss of the season.

Mourinho has been out of work since his dismissal from Manchester United in December 2018 but he is seemingly keen on a Premier League comeback with one of the elite teams.

Aside from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur have also been credited with an interest in Mourinho, who has previously guided Chelsea to the Premier League title in two different spells.
