Jose Mourinho mocks Arsene Wenger with title-challengers gag

Published 6 Comments

After extending his winning streak in the Premier League against Arsene Wenger on Saturday, Jose Mourinho has masterfully shifted focus from Diego Costa and the incident involving Gabriel Paulista and Laurent Koscielny to some controversy of his own.

As if victory wasn't enough for the Portuguese manager, he has since taunted Wenger by claiming that he likes every single one of Arsenal's players, and that the veteran manager has a squad capable of winning the Premier League.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Mourinho said: "I think Arsenal have the squad to be champions - and every season I feel that.

‘I don’t know why they can’t win it, but that’s my feeling.”

The pair's feud shows no sign of slowing, then, with Wenger all-too hesitant to shake Mourinho's even before the game had begun.

The comments seem to highlight the Frenchman’s failure to guide the Gunners to league success for over a decade, with Mourinho having the better of him once again.

"I like every player [from Arsenal]," Mourinho continued.

"If one of their players is a free agent and Arsenal don’t want him there, I would take every one. I like all of their players."

And while Mourinho's remarks will be widely interpreted as the manager making a mockery of Arsenal, there could be a degree of truth.

He was interested in luring Theo Walcott or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Stamford Bridge during the Petr Cech deal, but nothing materialised.

He also insisted Mesut Ozil was the best no.10 in the world, and Alexis Sanchez too has found a fan in the 52-year-old manager.

The reigning champions are currently 15th with seven points in six, while the Gunners are fifth with ten points, five adrift leaders Manchester City.
