Wenger 'Embarrassed' for Mourinho

MOST COMMENTED

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has responded to Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho's comments that he is a "specialist in failure," by describing the Portuguese coach as "embarrassing" for Chelsea. Following his team’s 2-1 FA Cup fifth-round win against Liverpool, the Frenchman said he was more disappointed for Chelsea than himself by Mourinho’s remarks.

Asked about the comments, Wenger said: "I am embarrassed for him, honestly. First of all I would say that I didn't speak about him at all in my press conference, and I have no more to say... I am more disappointed for Chelsea than for me.” He added: "I am not interested in the subject at all, and that is really genuine. If you are interested, and you have nothing better to do in your life, you are free to do it. But honestly, I cannot force my interest in things that are not interesting for me. I love football and I'm sorry to disappoint you, but what interests me is what happens on the pitch."

Speaking about Arsenal’s win against Liverpool, Wenger admitted that it was crucial to respond to the 5-1 hammering his team received at Anfield in last weekend’s Premier League clash. "It was vital as well because we had an opportunity to go to the quarterfinal of the FA Cup. I am very pleased with the intensity of our commitment and our response, our determination.” Goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski gave Arsenal 2-0 lead before Liverpool pulled one back through a Steven Gerrard penalty to produce an exciting finale.
