Redknapp uses Saddam Hussein to explain why Pochettino should coach at Arsenal

The former Spurs boss used an interesting analogy when linking the sacked Argentine to the Gunners coaching role

Arsenal should consider Mauricio Pochettino as their next manager if they decide to part ways with current boss Unai Emery, according to Harry Redknapp.

Pochettino was sacked as Spurs coach on Tuesday evening - only five months after leading the club to the Champions League final - with Jose Mourinho announced as his replacement the next morning.

With Arsenal struggling in Emery's second season in charge, Redknapp believes the fact Pochettino has been employed by their North London rivals shouldn't deter the Gunners from appointing the Argentinian, as fans would support any coach who wins games - including late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
