Chelsea boss poked fun at Arsenal during end-of-season speech
Arsene Wenger has refused to be drawn into a war of words with José Mourinho, after the Blues boss joked that Arsenal only performed in the second half of the season.
Chelsea’s manager was a hit at the club’s end of season awards dinner with his speech and it was in this speech that the former Real Madrid manager criticised the North Londoners.
Mourinho Pokes Fun at Arsenal
The Premier League champions’ boss said: “They were scoring some, they were also conceding some. They were fantastic.
“They scored really beautiful goals, they concede some goals too and they were almost there.
“But they asked the international board to play only between January and April. And they told ‘no chance, no chance’. You have to play between August and May, so they couldn’t be champions.”
Wenger Refuses to Comment
Wenger however refused to be drawn on the comments, stating “Forget his speech and move onto something else.”
“I’m not interested in his speech. I don’t listen to what people say.
“I listen to the questions that are asked, but when I don’t want to answer, I don’t want to answer.”
