Jose Mourinho: Chelsea boss appears to criticise Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger’s long-running feud with Jose Mourinho will only continue after the Frenchman’s latest comments.


Mourinho was asked about the pressure now on Newcastle Manager Steve McClaren, who doesn’t have a win since he became boss this past summer.

“We can not lose matches, we can not be below expectations, we have to reach our objectives, so I have sympathy for all of them and I also believe they have sympathy to myself because it’s a hard job”.

THEO Walcott has admitted that he’s turned to one of the best in the business to help him find a little extra composure in front of goal. “Good luck to him”. “Cannot achieve, keeps his job, can still be the king, it is privilege”.

You know exactly who Mourinho is talking about, even though he refused to actually name the specific Manager he was referring to.

The Chilean global, who joined Arsenal in July 2014 from Spanish champions FC Barcelona for 35 million pounds ($53.9 million, 49.5 million euros), was the most outstanding player of his team last season, scoring 25 goals in 59 matches.

“In this country, one manager is not under pressure”.

Gabriel, he added, had been “completely focused” in training while awaiting the FA decision.

“In the rules book it says some managers can speak about the referees before and after games”.

Mourinho declined to comment on that issue.

That did not pacify Wenger, who said that it repaired only “five per cent” of the damage his team suffered by losing Gabriel before half-time. “No critics from me”.

Remy opened his account against Walsall in midweek and insisted he wanted to play against his former club, where he spent the second half of the 2013-14 campaign on loan.

Both Chelsea and Arsenal meanwhile are subject to further action from the authorities after failing to control their players during the game.


The Portugese manager won the Premier League and League Cup twice each alongside the FA Cup after joining from Porto in 2004. He wasn’t the tallest man in the world but the amount of pressure he would put on defenders just scared them. “I think he deserves a lot of respect and I don’t see him as a “Tinkerman”. “Now we know it isn’t always“.
