Jose Mourinho refuses to congratulate Arsene Wenger on FA Cup win

Jose Mourinho failed to muster up any sort of decency during a press conference this morning after being asked what he thought of Arsenal's record-breaking FA Cup win against Aston Villa.

The Gunners won the trophy for a 12th time after running riot against Tim Sherwood's side at Wembley, winning 4-0 in what was the biggest margin of victory in two decades.

Arsene Wenger also became the second manager to win the trophy six times, surpassing Sir Alex Ferguson to level with 19th century Aston Villa manager George Ramsay.

It was some achievement in the modern era, but the Chelsea manager, who rarely has anything nice to say about his Premier League rival, could not muster up a congratulatory message.

Chelsea are currently partaking in a post-season tour of Australia after sealing the Premier League title at a canter and Mourinho was asked about events back in England during a press conference.

Nothing to say

When asked if had a message for Wenger, Mourinho said: "No. Enjoy"

After that there was the kind of smug look on his face that only a man like Mourinho can deliver. He knows the real prize was the English championship this season and he won it with ease.

The mental edge

Not only that, but he knows Wenger is likely to be his biggest challenger to the Premier League crown next season and is already taking jabs ahead of what promises to be a tight battle.

Mourinho has a significant edge over Wenger and has still yet to lose to the Frenchman in 13 games.

This season saw Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0 at Stamford Bridge before the Blues sealed a 0-0 draw at the Emirates in April.
