SHOCKING Mourinho Slams Wenger – Chelsea & Arsenal War of Words

Jose Mourinho is set to reignite the war of words with old foe Arsene Wenger, after sensationally labeling the Arsenal manager as a ‘Specialist in Failure’, in response to the Frenchman’s comments earlier in the day that Mourinho is ‘afraid to fail’.

Addressing reporters ahead of his side’s FA Cup clash against Manchester City, Mourinho gave off a stern look, while ripping into Wenger and mocking the 64-year old’s eight-year spell without winning any silverware for Arsenal.

Mourinho has had some choice words to say about Wenger in the past, calling the Frenchman a ‘Voyeur’ while also criticizing him for his preference of French players over homegrown talent. However, Mourinho’s latest attack on Wenger is certainly a ferocious one and some might feel that the Portuguese manager may have overstepped the mark by making such comments.

Admittedly, Wenger has had a barren spell in the last couple of years, but to publicly lambast such a respectful figure, who has done so much for the English game, is certainly harsh.

It just might be another one of Mourinho’s ingenious mind games intended to unsettle Arsenal in hopes of tilting the title race in Chelsea’s favour. However, on the other hand, the comments may also have a detrimental effect on the Blues by spurring the wounded Arsenal side to gun down Chelsea.

Although we all love Jose for his brilliant press conferences, which makes for compelling viewing for the fans, the Portuguese manager could do without humiliating his peers.

What do you think? Was Mourinho’s attack on Wenger an ingenious tactic or did he overstep the mark?

  1. Why not face the facts n stop being unnecessarily subjective n sentimental,afterall , it was d response to Wenger’s ‘fear of failure’ DAT he got. Or are u saying if it were you,u wuldt respond?mou did d rite thing by giving it back to him in his own coin.those who live in glass houses don’t trow stones.

  2. Regardless of how crude Jose can be ….he is still one-hundred times a better manager than David Moyes will ever be. Jose would be managing Man U at the moment except for the fact that Sir Alex (the most vain manager in the history of the EPL) wanted a manager that he could control …which is Moyes and not Jose.

  3. Wenger certainly drew the first blood when he said that Mourinho was afraid of failure! And most certainly he knew Mourinho would avail him a response. And so he got what he wanted! In any case is Arsene Wenger not a master failure? Can he in very serious terms be described as a successful coach in the mould of successful coaches the world has seen? Counting ten years back, would he come within the first ten successful coaches in Europe?

  4. Mou has a powerful personality to out crash opponents in field as well as in press conferences. We enjoy being part of his success. Sorry for the opponents in the field and out of the field. I would rather tell you people with hatred feelings against MOU, you do so because you are on the failing side and MOU is your enemy, if the next day is on your side you will speak and say different things about him. Therefore let us enjoy our time with MOU

  5. mo has no respect and he is not so intelligent no-wonder he was Rob son’s interpreter before becoming a coach. He is in a wrong profession.

    You can knock mourinho for his comments about wenger but you neglect to state that the british press are just as guilty of this ‘harsh’ behaviour as him!
