Mourinho: Wenger a 'Specialist in Failure'

MOST COMMENTED

Jose Mourinho has responded to Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger’s claim that the Chelsea boss is afraid of failure by calling Wenger a “specialist in failure.” Following a news conference in which Wenger said the Premier League title was “Chelsea’s to lose” and that his rival insisting that Chelsea is not a title contender comes out of a “fear to fail,” Mourinho said, "He is a specialist in failure. I'm not. So if supposing he's right and I'm afraid of failure, it's because I don't fail many times. So maybe he's right. I'm not used to failing.”

The Portuguese added: "But the reality is he's a specialist because, eight years without a piece of silverware, that's failure. If I did that in Chelsea I'd leave and not come back." Chelsea is currently leading the league by one point over Arsenal, with Manchester City three points back and Liverpool four. City has a game in hand, however.
