Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has aimed a dig at his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger in his press conference this afternoon (Friday). The Manchester United boss couldn’t hide his displeasure when he said that the media “RESPECT” Wenger more. Tomorrow, Mourinho will like to continue his winning record against Wenger.
“The record, I repeat, against any other manager is not important. For me the only thing that matters is what you get globally, as a team. Our results, our CV.
“In the Premier League, tomorrow is a match between the two managers with the best record. Alex Ferguson is not here anymore. Tomorrow, between the two managers, we’re speaking about six or seven Premier League titles, I think. I have three, he has three or four I don’t know.
“Does that mean that we should be respected, even in periods where our results are not the best? I think Mr Wenger has that respect from all of you. I don’t think I have. Especially because my last title was 18 months ago, not 18 years ago. But I just follow my way because I want to win a fourth Premier League.”
Wenger’s last of three Premier League crowns came in 2004 – 12 years ago – and Mourinho is hoping to beat him to a fourth come May 2017.
He added: “I’m at the club where I want to be. It’s as simple as that.
“When I was sacked at Chelsea, I was not in trouble, I had lots of offers. I don’t speak about them because it’s a question of principle. I could have been working immediately after I left, at some of the biggest clubs in Europe. And I waited.
“I was champion at four different clubs and I want to be champion at every club I work. It’s quite a nice record if I can do that.”
