Wenger: Mourinho has embarrassed Chelsea

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has accused his Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho of being an embarrassment to his club, BBC Sport has reported.

Mourinho had previously described Wenger as “a specialist in failure” after Wenger suggested Chelsea and Liverpool were downplaying their title chances as they were afraid of failing.

Speaking after the Gunners beat the Reds on Sunday in the FA Cup, Wenger was reluctant to get further drawn into a row with the Portuguese but did respond to Mourinho’s comments.

“I do not want to go into that silly, disrespectful remark,” he said.

“I never spoke about him in my press conference and I will not start. The only thing I know is it's more embarrassing for Chelsea than for me.

“I’m embarrassed for him, honestly. I'm not interested in the subject at all. That is really genuine.

“I love football - and I'm sorry to disappoint you - what's interesting for me is what happens on the pitch.”

The exchange is the latest in a spat between the pair that dates back to the start of Mourinho’s first spell in charge of Chelsea, which began in 2004. Mourinho stayed at Stamford Bridge until September 2007, then spent time at Inter and Real Madrid, before returning last year.

Arsenal were victorious over Liverpool with a 2-1 win, while Chelsea were knocked out of the competition on Saturday as they lost to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Chelsea, the Premier League leaders, lost 2-0 to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Wenger is simply telling Mourinho to do the talking on the pitch and stop mouthing off. This is just simple English and I hope its crystal clear for u Richard.

Facts are stubborn. Jose raised a valid point on Arsene and Jose has done an excellent coaching job with a lot of achievements with different clubs. Arsene achieved very little with Arenal considering the period he has been with Arsenal. No other clubs in the world would have kept Arsene for that long without achieving much in football, so he must appreciate that Arsenal have kept him in employment beyond his useful time.
