Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has listed the top five managers he would want to be the permanent successor to Unai Emery. Emery was sacked as Arsenal head coach last week, ending his 18-month spell at the Emirates. Parlour’s former team-mate Freddie Ljungberg has been placed in interim charge for the time being.

Ljungberg is one of the favourites to be given the job on a full-time basis.

However, the former Sweden international is not among the five names listed by Parlour.

His first choice would be Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked by north London rivals Tottenham last month.

Second he would choose Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers, followed by ex-Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo and former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta.

“Believe it or not, the favourite is Arteta in getting the job and he would be the last choice for me,” Parlour said on talkSPORT.

“Fourth would be Santo, I think Wolves, he’s done a brilliant job there as well.

“Number three would be Allegri, with his experience.

“The only problem with Allegri is he’s got no Premier League experience, so it’s a little bit of a gamble. But he’s managed big clubs.

“We were on top of Norwich and I think the Arsenal fans got energy from that. That helped.

“But they were great, even when we went 1-0 down or 2-1 down, they were even louder and they helped us. That's important for the players.

“When it comes to the Emirates, the fans want us to win football games.

“They want us to play good football and I think the only way to try to get a good atmosphere and get them going is to try to achieve that.

“Whether that's me or someone else as a coach, I don't think that matters so much.”
