Carragher: Arsenal should've chosen this manager ahead of Emery

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher isn't convinced by Arsenal manager Unai Emery.

Carragher has admitted that Emery would not have been his first choice for Arsenal - instead believing his former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, now in charge of Newcastle United, should have got the nod.

"Rafa is probably my biggest influence in football - I had him for six years as my manager," Carragher told Sky Sports.

"You look at someone like Rafa and his CV, with what he's done - he's got trophies everywhere.

"Why wasn't he in the running for the Arsenal job?"
