Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has launched a stinging attack on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, stating that the Frenchman is the only manager in English football that can underachieve and not lose his job.
The Portuguese has been embroiled in a tete-a-tete with the Gunners supremo over the years, with the pair coming to blows again last weekend as the Blues beat the North London side 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho has repeatedly taken aim against Wenger in press conference and continued his tirade against the Emirates Stadium man again yesterday.
When asked about the pressure that Newcastle boss Steve McClaren was under ahead of facing the Tyneside club later today, Mourinho spectacularly turned the question around to take a swipe at Wenger.
“In this country, only one manager is not under pressure,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
“Every other manager is. I am under pressure, Steve is under pressure, [Manuel] Pellegrini is under pressure, Brendan [Rodgers] too. We cannot be below par.
“We have to meet the objectives. I have sympathy with all of them, because it’s a difficult job. There’s one outside that list, but good for him. I have sympathy for Steve.”
When pushed to name who the one manager not under pressure was, Mourinho continued his attack on the Arsenal boss by stating that Wenger did not have repercussions to face.
“You know,” he continued.
“The one who can speak about the referees before the game, after the game, can push people in the technical area, can moan, can cry in the morning in the afternoon, nothing happens.
“He can not achieve, keep his job, still be the king. I say just one.”
