The Tottenham manager stated that he understands perfectly why Wenger omitted his name in the new book claiming it’s because ‘he never beat me’.
Mourinho boasts about his achievement against the tactician because he won most of their games when both managers faced-off.
It’s because he never beat me,’ smiled Tottenham boss Mourinho, when asked why he didn’t feature in Wenger’s autobiography My Life in Red and White.
“A book is a thing to make you happy and make you proud so I understand perfectly the situation.”
Both managers are famous for their explosive bitter rivalry which dates back to 2004 when Jose first arrived the Premier League to manage Chelsea.
It was a time Arsenal, under Wenger, were the best team in England having just won the Premier League without losing a game, thereby creating history.
‘The Special One’ then won the title having inspired Chelsea to the Premier League glory for the first time in their history.
Recall that Jose branded Wenger a ‘specialist in failure’ and his Chelsea team beat Arsenal 6-0 to wreck Wenger’s 1,000th match in charge of the club he served for 22 years.
The animosity thawed slightly in their later years, but it appears that their rivalry has just been taken unto another level.
