Gary Lineker has joked that Mauricio Pochettino could be in charge at Arsenal by Monday.

The Argentine head coach was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur last week after five seasons in charge of the north London side.

Pochettino was axed by the north London side despite leading Tottenham to four consecutive top-four finishes for the first time in the club’s Premier League history.

The 47-year-old lead Spurs to the Champions League final last term before Tottenham lost 2-0 to Liverpool FC in Madrid back in June.

Arsenal’s current manager Unai Emery is coming under pressure following the Gunners’ disappointing start to the Premier League season.

The Emirates outfit drew 2-2 with Premier League strugglers Southampton on Saturday afternoon after Alexandre Lacazette’s late equaliser.

Former Spurs forward Lineker suggested that Pochettinho could be swiftly re-employed given the poor form of Arsenal, as well as Everton and West Ham.

Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Pochettino could be managing West Ham, Everton and Arsenal by Monday.”

Arsenal are in seventh place in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of the top four.

The Gunners will make the trip to face Norwich City at Carrow Road in their next Premier League fixture next weekend.

Arsenal appointed Emery as Arsene Wenger’s replacement back in May 2018.

Emery led the Gunners to the Europa League final last term before Arsenal lost 4-1 to Chelsea FC.
