Real Reason Mourinho snubbed Arsenal for Tottenham revealed


New Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, had reservations about replacing Unai Emery at Arsenal, the UK Times reports.

The 56-year-old instead chose to take over as the new Spurs boss earlier this week.

Before then, Mourinho reportedly held talks with Arsenal’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi.

Emery has been under pressure following a poor start to the campaign and Mourinho was one of the candidates touted as potential replacement.

The Portuguese impressed Sanllehi with his plans for the Gunners during their discussions, but was not fully convinced that Arsenal would be the best move for him.

It is also believed that the structure of Arsenal’s hierarchy “did not appeal” to him.
