Keown said in an interview with the Daily Mail –
Arsenal don’t need to panic but But we should think about our position. We are not in the best position on the season, but our power is at the top of the club. So we should seriously think about appointing Pochettino.
He also talked about his last club Tottenham, I am very appreciative of the way he did at Tottenham, the way he nurtured these young players and how he did spend a little amount of money. I don’t think Tottenham spent enough.
To encourage the decision of getting Mauricio, Keown added –
This position is deserved by him and would like to work with this man. I am looking at the club officials to take this hugely significant decision.
