Arsene Wenger more respected than me: Jose Mourinho
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claimed yesterday he is not shown the same respect as his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger, ahead of their Premier League showdown today
Manchester: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claimed yesterday he is not shown the same respect as his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger, ahead of their Premier League showdown today. Mourinho, 53, has regularly clashed with Wenger, 67, over the course of his two spells as Chelsea manager and his current role at United. Both men have three Premier League titles each, but with Mourinho having won his last title as recently as 2015 — as opposed to 2004 for Wenger, he feels the media do not give him enough credit.
“In the Premier League, going just on the Premier League, tomorrow is a match between the two managers with the best record. Sir Alex Ferguson isn’t here anymore,” Mourinho said. “Tomorrow, I think between the two managers we are speaking about, I think (there are) six or seven Premier League titles. I have three, he has three or four. Does that mean 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,” he added.
