Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is seemingly not content with calling Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a ‘specialist in failure’.
In February, the Portuguese claimed that Wenger is a failure for having gone eight years without a major trophy.
Now that the Gunners have won back-to-back titles with FA Cup glory in May and FA Community Shield triumph earlier this month, the Blues boss has undermined (or tried to anyway) the Frenchman’s recent success.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Burnley away from home on Monday, Mourinho admitted that he is under more pressure than any of the Premier League managers.
‘Why? Some have 10 years to win something, I have only two’, Goal.com quotes the 51-year-old as saying.
Mourinho’s words are clearly a jibe at Arsenal’s lack of trophy success under Wenger in recent years. The Gunners have not won the Premier League since 2004 and are pretty much also-rans in the Champions League.
On the other hand, Mourinho has won the Champions League and Serie A with Inter Milan, and La Liga and the Copa del Rey with Real Madrid in the last five or so years.
However, Mourinho has now gone two successive years without winning any major silverware. The ex-Porto boss’s final season with Madrid ended trophyless and so did his first back at Chelsea in 2013-14 (click here to read more).
Mourinho has three more years left on his contract with the London outfit, but he could well be gone by next summer if Chelsea fail to win anything for the second season in a row in his second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge.
