EPL: Arsenal speak on meeting with Mourinho to replace Unai Emery

 

Arsenal have played down claims that the club’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi, recently met with Jose Mourinho, Goal reports.

 

The Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves on Saturday, increasing pressure on manager Unai Emery.

 

 

Emery has overseen just two wins from their last nine Premier League matches.

The Gunners were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, as they let a two-goal lead slip to draw 5-5 with a youthful Liverpool side before losing on penalties.

 

And reports emerged on Sunday, that Mourinho had recently dined with Sanllehi, with Arsenal considering the former Chelsea boss as a potential replacement for Emery.

 

 

Sources close to the club however insist that the rumoured meeting did not happen, with Sanllehi having not met Mourinho in person for a number of years.

 

Emery replaced Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2018.
