Piers Morgan has revealed details of a conversation he had with Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho, and as you would expect, he managed to sneak in a pop at Arsene Wenger.
Morgan is a vocal supporter of the ‘Wenger Out’ campaign, and can regularly be found beating the drum on social media for the French tactician to be sacked.
It seems he loved his run-in with Mourinho at Harrods in London, as reported in his Daily Mail column, although the Man Utd manager might not be too crazy about his decision to share details of their chat with the world.
The pair saw each other after Arsenal’s 4-0 loss at Liverpool prior to the international break, and Morgan has revealed that they had a 20-minute discussion covering various topics, including the Gunners and Wenger’s future.
Morgan wrote: “I feel so sorry for you Arsenal fans,” he chuckled, not looking remotely sorry.
He quoted Mourinho saying: “I have some very good friends who love Arsenal like you do and they are just as depressed as you about the club.
“They suffer so badly, it is a terrible thing to observe. Mourinho then burst out laughing. “Terrible… hahahahaha.”
Morgan says he asked: “How the hell is Arsene Wenger still in his job?”Mourinho’s response, as reported by Morgan, is brutal: “No idea,” Mourinho smirked. “But I hope he stays in it for a very long time…”‘
Given the photo below, the chance meeting obviously happened, and while those who like Morgan will undoubtedly get behind his post and quotes and continue to call for Wenger to go, others may just look at this and question how he’s able to have a conversation about his own team and manager and mock them with their rival.
Arsenal bounced back with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend, but the real test for Wenger and his players will come next weekend when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge as they must show that they’ve learned their lesson and can compete with their direct rivals.
