Will Jose Mourinho have another dig at Arsene Wenger? By Sylvester Kwentua
When Jose Mourinho called Arsene Wenger a “specialist in failure” in 2014 in response to a remark made about him being scared of failing by Wenger, I was among those who personally felt Mr Mourinho had over stepped his boundary! I felt he had totally lost it as a young manager. I am a Nigerian, and in Nigeria where I come from, it is believed that an old person is one who has matured in age, wisdom and experience; therefore, an old person must never be insulted by a younger person, no matter the level of provocation.
Three years later, I can’t just help it but to imagine what will be going through Mourinho’s mind, most especially as daddy Wenger has done nothing to shake off that tag. Yes, he won two FA cups since that Mourinho’s saga but we know Mourinho’s nickname for Wenger would not ease off after just two FA cup trophies since 2014! Maybe if he had won the Premier league or UEFA champions’ league trophy, the nickname would have become obsolete!
Let me see if I can take a ride through Mourinho’s mind and probably feel what he is currently thinking concerning a possible trophy-less end of the season for Arsenal. Take a ride with me mates.
Concerning the proper thrashing by Bayern Munich, this may be the thoughts on his mind: “This man would never change! How can he be losing shamelessly to fellow big teams? He calls himself a big coach, yet he finds it difficult winning big games! What a pity!! Well, I keep my peace”.
On the debate going on regarding the future of Wenger, “What are the board members of Arsenal FC waiting for? Are they scared of sacking this man? If it were to be me, I probably would have been sacked four years ago! I guess they enjoy failure more than success”
Manchester united had a difficult start to the season but right now, they have gotten their groove back and if Arsenal is not careful, they will clinch the top four spot at the end of the season at the expense of Arsenal,unless Wenger sits up! The best way to shut Mourinho up from saying things that will hurt Arsenal fans at the end of the season is for Arsenal to end the season in the top four!
