Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has taken yet another swipe at Arsene Wenger with the pressure seemingly mounting on the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’, The Telegraph reports.
With all the controversy surrounding the Blues this week regarding their medical staff, Mourinho is clearly feeling backed into a corner and, as per usual, wants to use Wenger as his punching bag.
Judging by these constant verbal attacks, how can anyone question Wenger’s decision to not shake his hand at Wembley a fortnight ago?
Asked about Manuel Pellegrini keeping his job despite ending the last campaign without silverware, Mourinho spotted another opportunity.

“Why? Some other clubs, they are disappointed for 15 years and the manager is the same,” Mourinho was quoted as saying in the publication.
- Agent of exiled Mesut Ozil warns Arsenal that the truth will be revealed
- Arsenal overtaken by new frontrunners to sign Houssem Aouar in January
- Ex-Arsenal star favouring a move to America’s MLS to restart career
Given that Wenger is the only manager in European football who is currently serving a reign spanning over 15 years, it’s clear that Mourinho’s subliminal comment was aimed at our manager.
The lack of class he shows is mind boggling at times and given that he’s yet to stay at a club for more than three years, the usual capitulation with Mourinho seems to be in full-effect.
His attack on Chelsea’s medical staff was, both baffling, and completely unnecessary. It’s only a matter of time before Roman Abramovich gets irritated yet again by his antics and shows him the door.
