Jose Mourinho isn’t one to bite his tongue. If something comes to his mind, he’ll say it and worry about the consequences later.
Take for instance his Friday press conference to preview Chelsea’s next match. The Blues aren’t playing Arsenal (they’re facing Manchester City in the FA Cup), but that didn’t stop Mourinho from lobbing a verbal grenade at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, calling the Frenchman an expert at failure.
Mourinho’s response came after a leading question from an English journalist who quoted Arsene Wenger as saying that manager’s who claim to not be in the title race say such things out of a fear of failure.
That didn’t sit too well with Mourinho, who responded immediately with a brutal shot.
“He’s a specialist in failure. I’m not. I’m not, so if supposedly he’s right, and I’m afraid to fail, it’s because I don’t fail many times.”
Here is video of Mourinho’s full comments about Wenger, which included a jab about Wenger’s eight years without a trophy:
What do you think of Mourinho’s comments? Think it was overboard, or fair given what Wenger apparently said on Friday morning?
