How Jose Mourinho could make Arsenal a force again, according to Danny Mills

Jose Mourinhos adaptability as a manger would improve Arsenal, but he would need to spend a lot of money to spend on the squad, according to England international Danny Mills.

Pressure is beginning to mount on Gunners boss Unai Emery after a shaky start to the season and a calamitous 2-2 draw with Watford last weekend.

Emerys side were two goals ahead at half time at Vicarage Road but produced a woeful display after the break and allowed the Hornets to get back into the game and take a point.

Mills does not believe Emery has made much of an impact since taking over at the Emirates in 2018 and believes Mourinho is a better option in the dugout, although the Portuguese would take some persuading to accept the job.

Is there much improvement since Arsene Wenger? Mills asked on talkSPORT. Under Arsene Wenger it was always “they just keep doing the same thing, they keep playing the same way, they dont sort out the defensive midfield, they dont sort out the defence and it doesnt get any better”.



One thing you have to say about Mourinho [is] he always found different ways to win and he would adapt to the opposition. Mourinho I still think is one of the best. Im not so sure that he would [take the Arsenal job].

Hed need plenty of money, hed need plenty of money to sort that defence out, that would be the biggest problem.

But he was adaptable, Sir Alex Ferguson was always adaptable, would change formation in European games. To compete at the very, very top, you have to do that.

Unless you are so ahead of everybody else, so much better, you have to adapt to the opposition.

Even Manchester City did that, that first season where Pep [Guardiola] realised “oh, that didnt quite work”. Youve got to find a balance.

Emery is not expected to be sacked any time soon, with bookmakers offering odds of 25/1 on him being the next Premier League manager to leave their post.
