Jose Mourinho claims there is no need for him to apologise to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger…
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has no intention of saying sorry to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, despite dubbing him a ‘specialist in failure’ last season.
Mourinho has been quoted by the Metro, ahead of the pair’s Premier League clash on Sunday. Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge for the first time since the Blues’ 6-0 drubbing of their opponents in March.
The source explains that the relationship between the two managers had already hit rock-bottom before the heavy scoreline, with Mourinho poking fun at the Gunners’ trophyless run – something which has since been rectified with their FA Cup victory over Hull.
Mourinho said: “It was a consequence of something, not a deliberate first option to say something. I didn’t get an apology so I don’t apologise. My feeling is to get over it, forget it and to move forward without thinking about what happened, you don’t need to apologise.
“I don’t need to get an apology, I don’t need to apologise. Football people, intelligent people we don’t need that. Finish, move and let’s go for another match with a big responsibility for both of us because we manage two big clubs in London and have responsibility to have a good football match for millions of fans that both clubs have and the League has. So no problems.”
