Martin Keown believes former club Arsenal should look at appointing Mauricio Pochettino
‘There’s no need for panic at Arsenal, we are getting close but the people at the top of the club should be considering Pochettino’, speaking at Sportsmail’s A Pint with Piers event in London on Wednesday night.
The former centre-back believes Pochettino’s departure could spark upheaval throughout the division and even Europe.
