Jose Mourinho is under fire at Chelsea after losing three times in the opening five games of the Premier League season, but he has once again found a way to aim a sly dig at Arsene Wenger.
Asked by the press ahead of the Blues opening Champions League fixture if he was anxious about his position and Roman Abramovich’s take on the current situation, Mourinho snapped and instead responded by questioning why “some managers” are never under pressure despite experiencing 10 years of disappointment.
It doesn’t take a genius to work out who Mourinho is referring to after previously claiming that Wenger had the “dream” job at Arsenal, indicating that the boss works under special circumstances and with very little pressure (via Sky Sports).
Wenger is the boss at Arsenal, but with that title comes extreme responsibilities given that he’s essentially scrutinised for what occurs in every area of the club.
Arsenal news & rumours
The lack of transfers, our injury record and even the ticket pricing situation are areas Wenger is often quizzed on, something Mourinho would never be able to handle.

- [Player ratings] Molde 0-3 Arsenal – Balogun scores as Gunners cruise
The Chelsea boss’ only concern is the training ground and what happens on the pitch on a matchday, a drop in the ocean compared to what lies on Wenger’s plate.
Oh, I hope we thrash Chelsea this weekend and push him closer to the edge.
