Even though most of the statements here are implied, it is obvious that they are mearnt for the Arsenal boss and that means the long-running feud with Arsene Wenger is still on a long thing.
Jose Mourinho still reeling from the Red-Card reversal given to Diego Costa after last saturdays fiasco between Costa and Gabriel has taken a swing at the silent “king” who gets away with almost anything.
Here are some of the statements as captured by london24
“I think in this country, only one manager is not under pressure,” Mourinho said.“Steve is under pressure, I am under pressure, Brendan (Rodgers, the Liverpool boss) is under pressure, (Manchester City’s Manuel) Pellegrini is under pressure.
“We cannot lose matches, we cannot be below expectations. “There is one that for some reason is outside that list. Good for him.”“You know,” Mourinho said.“He can speak about the referees before the game, can speak about the referees after the game, can push people in the technical area, can cry in the morning, can cry in the afternoon, nothing happens. Can be not achieved, keep the job, still the king. It’s a privilege.”Mourinho insisted his comments were “not strong” and was asked why he thought there was an inconsistency.“A good question. I don’t have a theory. I just have a reality,” Mourinho added.“Just something that is real and is objective. If I speak about the referee, I am suspended.“If I push a manager in the technical area, I am banned from the stadium.“If I speak about players from other clubs and I ask for suspensions, I am in trouble.
“So, clearly, the facts are there. I don’t envy (him). It’s good for him.”
Thinking about it, Wenger has been Arsenal’s boss since October 1996, Is he really enjoying a “kingship” status with the FA and club?
