Mourinho sends message to Emery after Arsenal sack

Jose Mourinho has issued a message to Unai Emery following his sacking as Arsenal manager.

Emery was removed from his post today after board member determined over a crunch meeting it was time for a change.

Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg has taken over as interim Gunners boss with immediate effect, and has been tasked with turning round the club's fortunes after Emery oversaw the club's worst run since 1992.

But Mourinho was quick to reassure his fellow manager that he will bounce back and make a return to football.

"No dramas, mi amigo," Mourinho said. "Keep going and you will get another club."

Mourinho has only been in charge at Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham less than a fortnight, having replaced Mauricio Pochettino last Wednesday.

When asked whether he would have considered the Arsenal post, Mourinho said: "I'm so happy here that I couldn't even think about the possibility to go to another place.

"You can put now in front of me any club in the world, I would not move."

Pochettino has now been sensationally linked with a switch to the Emirates after his five-year spell with the club ended.
