Did Arsenal boss play a big role in Mourinho’s Chelsea demise?

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is claimed to have got one over Jose Mourinho last year, which may well have been the beginning of the end for the then Chelsea boss.

The Gunners boss swayed Petr Cech to quit Stamford Bridge and move across London last 13 months ago, and while Mourinho was reluctant to sell, his hand was forced.

The Portuguese manager did not wish to sell the goalkeeper to his rivals, but Roman Abramovich felt the need to honour his long-serving servent’s wishes, which led to Mourinho to demand a player in return. Jose did not succeed in securing the services of an Arsenal player however, with Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain named as the players he was keen on.

An email from Mourinho is claimed to read:

‘Mister Wenger wants Cech and he thinks about money…he is wrong!!! What I want is to f him…Want Cech? OK, I want (Theo) Walcott or (Alex) Oxlade-Chamberlain!!!

‘Want a top goalkeeper? OK, I want a young player, s with you but I can make him top.’

Shortly after the Czech star’s switch to the Emirates, the wheels appeared to fall off for Mourinho, with the public falling out with Eva Carneiro, the medical staff member who was sacked, before suing the club. The team also faltered in the following months, which ended up costing him his job.

This transfer may well have been the ending of a happy working relationship between Roman and the now Manchester United manager, and his mood may have ended up proving costly to the club.

What a glorious day when we can boast playing our part in Chelsea’s disgraceful campaign which saw them miss out on any form of European football, nor challenge to win a single trophy.

Was our Cech capture the beginning of the end for Mourinho?

        The annoying thing is that…as horrible as Chelsea were last season, they still did the double against us.
        So, I’ll say forget if Arsenal played a part in the sacking of Maureen…We need to beat Chelsea tomorrow.

    I think what done in Mourinho was him attacking the one person who looks after the players most of all. With her caring for them and being there through the worst of their injuries, it was stupid for Mourinho to make an enemy of her when he had no real cause to do it. The players then turned, and if only one or two of your biggest turn, well then you’re in trouble. I don’t think Mourinho would have given it much thought, it was spur of moment, but afterwards I’m sure he realised he made a hash of it. The thing is though, he is at utd making enemies of players already. Instead of waiting til he gets them into the dressing room, he is chastising them through the media.

    That’s the issue with the media, they inflate your ego to a point of no return then if you understand how the ego works, it is self destructive by nature. An inflated ego will destroy you like cancer does to its host. He’s already tearing apart his own players at ManU (Luke shaw) so if he losses a few more games I honestly think he’ll be given the boot.

    Don’t know how people see this news but terry is out of the game tomorrow. Could be good-He’s a leader and Liz is liable to mistake
    Could be bad-Harder to counter attack as luiz and Cahill are more mobile
