Mourinho has another dig at Wenger!
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger knows new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho all too well ahead of the upcoming season, with the pair being long term bitter rivals in management.
Mourinho is known to have a fair few digs at Wenger during his two different stints with London rivals Chelsea, although it was Mourinho who has been deemed the more recent ‘Specialist in Failure’, following on from a torrid season with Chelsea last year. Mourinho however has stuck around in the Premier League, striking up a deal with Manchester United and has been quick off the mark to criticise Wenger already, in his first press conference as a United man.
Speaking ahead of the pressures that will be on his back at United, Mourinho said: “There are some managers who won the title 10 years ago, some have not won a title ever. The last time I won the title was one year ago, so if I have something to prove, imagine the others.”
Wenger has always been quick to brush off Mourinho’s snide comments and rarely has a response to the Portuguese manager’s views. However, Wenger really does have a point to prove this season, to everyone in football, not just to Jose Mourinho.
Arsene Wenger needs to prove that there is no reason to doubt him and the only way Le Prof will achieve this, is by becoming a winner of major honours with Arsenal once again. Wenger needs to prove Arsenal’s ambition to win, otherwise we could be saying goodbye to Wenger for good next summer. As for Mourinho, he seems a little obsessed with talking about his rivalry with Wenger.
