Home Premier League Arsenal Wenger: Mourinho provoked me

Wenger: Mourinho provoked me


Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have a rivalry so big, that the Frenchman has taken a dig at the Special One when he was apologising for shoving him! During the recent Premier League match between Chelsea and Arsenal, the two bosses confronted each other on the touchline and Wenger even shoved Mourinho.

The Gunners coach has recently apologised for the outburst on French TV Show Telefoot but he believes it was the Portuguese manager who instigated the situation. He said:

“In hindsight I think I should not have reacted at all, it’s not a way to behave on a football field. I always regret any signs of violence and I apologise, but that’s a part of games where everything is manic.

“And then we have quite a substantial past. Did Mourinho provoke me? That is how I felt. I did not enter Chelsea’s technical area.”

Mourinho has also spoken about the incident, but he didn’t say very much about it. He said: “I have no words to explain what everybody else saw in those images.

“Wenger will explain what he wants to explain. I will not say more.”
