Unai Emery sacked: Odds on favourites to be next Arsenal manager reveal Ancelotti, Ljungberg and Pochettino among them
The north London club sunk to new lows under Emery on Thursday evening as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Eintracht Frankfurt with a record-low crowd at the Emirates Stadium.
The squad were informed at around 9am on Friday and former Arsenal winger Freddie Ljungberg has now taken charge on an interim basis. He is a front runner for the full-time role, as is Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, who was replaced at Spurs by Jose Mourinho last week, has also been mooted for the role in what would be a hugely controversial appointment.

Arsenal could also turn to former assistant coach and club captain Mikel Arteta – who now works as Pep Guardiola’s no.2 at Manchester City.
Arteta nearly landed the role following Arsene Wenger’s before Emery was handed the reins.
