Mourinho jibes Wenger over Arsenal’s protracted trophy droughtBy ANI
Saturday, November 27, 2010
LONDON - Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has launched a vicious attack on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger over the English club’s failure to win a trophy in the last five years.
Mourinho’s attack comes after Wenger denounced Real’s controversial time-wasting tactics against Ajax on Tuesday.
Wenger had urged UEFA to punish Mourinho and Real Madrid for the ‘horrible’ charade, which led to suspicious red cards for Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos.
“Instead of speaking about Real Madrid, Wenger should speak about Arsenal and explain how he lost 2-0 against a team in the Champions League for the first time,” the Sun quoted Mourinho, as saying.
“He should especially explain to Arsenal supporters how he can’t win one single little trophy since 2005,” he added.
Mourinho was mocking Arsenal’s 2-0 Champions League defeat against Braga, which has left the club in danger of crashing out of the tournament.
The former Chelsea manager also slammed Wenger’s claims that the Gunners’ side is still mostly inexperienced.
“The history about the young kids is getting old now. Sagna, Clichy, Walcott, Fabregas, Song, Nasri, Van Persie, Arshavin are NOT kids. They are all top players,” Mourinho said. (ANI)
