Wenger apologises for Mourinho altercation

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a public apology for appearing to push Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho during the recent Premier League encounter between the two sides, BBC Sport is reporting.

The Frenchman confronted his opposite number following a challenge by Chelsea’s Gary Cahill on Alexis Sanchez during the first half of the match, which Arsenal eventually lost 2-0 thanks to an Eden Hazard penalty and Diego Costa’s dinked finish.

He initially shoved Mourinho before the duo exchanged words and almost locked heads in between the two technical areas, forcing fourth official Jon Moss to intervene. After the game, Wenger insisted that he did not regret the incident, and in the days that followed the Football Association announced that no action would be taken against the 64-year-old.

However, he was questioned about it on French television, and has apologised for his actions at Stamford Bridge, saying: “Too much importance was given to this story but I should not have reacted like this. I always regret any signs of violence and I apologise for it.”
