Jose Mourinho has launched yet another scathing attack on Arsene Wenger, and once again showed his childishness and lack of professionalism. The Chelsea boss has claimed that Wenger is outside the law, as well as being the only manager in England who is not under pressure. He also insisted he was able to “cry” and “not achieve anything”, yet still be called “king”, as reported by Sky Sports.
Mourinho and Wenger have long been involved in this spat, with both men clearly despising each other. There are few managers that get under Wenger’s skin, but Mourinho clearly has a talent for it. He has rubbed a number of managers up the wrong way during his time in the Premier League, but his feud with Wenger seems to be a recurring theme.
The Blues boss is clearly furious over the FA’s decision to overturn Mike Dean’s rulings during our controversial 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge, and has chosen to direct his rage at Wenger.
He has slung a number of barbs at the Frenchman, and his juvenile attack shows once again what type of man he is – perfectly illustrating his jealousy and insecurity. He doesn’t mention Wenger by name, but it seems clear to all who he’s talking about.
“I think in this country, only one manager is not under pressure,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“[One who] can cry every morning, not achieve anything and still be the king.
“Steve McClaren is under pressure, I am under pressure, Brendan Rodgers, Manuel Pellegrini. There is one that for some reason is outside that list. Good for him.”
Perhaps if Mourinho wasn’t so vile, sarcastic, and aggressive with the manner in which he speaks to and about the officials, then he would be treated a little better by the FA.
Wenger consistently maintains an air of respect when talking post game, and on the rare occasions he does mention the referees, he makes sure not to step out of line or be too critical. Mourinho on the other hand, veils insults behind sarcastic comments, and regularly makes spiteful remarks – like the ones directed at Wenger – towards match officials.
The Portuguese manager seems incapable of comprehending that when you behave like a repugnant human being, you are likely to be treated like one more often than not.

Unfortunately Mourinho is unlikely to change, and if anything he appears to be getting more immature with age. Or perhaps these are just more mind games from the contemptible Chelsea man?
