Piers Morgan has taken to social media to declare that he would instantly welcome Jose Mourinho as Arsene Wenger’s successor at Arsenal.

Wenger has found himself under pressure at Arsenal in recent seasons following his failure to deliver a Premier League title in more than 10 years.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Morgan has been one of Wenger’s harshest critics in recent years, despite the Gunners having won the FA Cup title in three of the last four seasons.

Mourinho is currently enjoying a successful start to his second season at Manchester United as he bids to become the first manager to lead them to the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

Wenger signed a new two-year contract with Arsenal in the summer to keep him at the club until the end of next season at least.

However, Morgan would clearly love to see Mourinho take over from Wenger at Arsenal, no matter how unlikely that appointment would be.

Morgan tweeted on Tuesday night: “If Manchester United fans don’t want Jose Mourinho, I’ll take him at Arsenal in a heartbeat. #winner.”

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a crunch clash against Manchester City at The Etihad.

The north London side are currently fifth and nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the title.
