Wenger is more respected than me – Mourinho | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The firecracker relationship between the two bosses is set to be ignited again after the Portuguese had a jibe at his rival's lack of success.


Jose Mourinho believes he is shown a lack of respect by the British media when compared to that offered to Arsene Wenger, a man he claimed had not won the Premier League title for 18 years.

Mourinho's Manchester United on Saturday face Arsenal and Wenger, a man with whom he has had a long-running feud dating back to the Portuguese's time at Chelsea.

Wenger has never beaten a Mourinho team in the Premier League and the former Real Madrid boss is frustrated at his media profile compared to the Frenchman.

He told a news conference: "The record, I repeat, against any other manager is not important. For me the only thing that matters is what you get globally, as a team. Our results, our CV.

"In the Premier League, tomorrow is a match between the two managers with the best record. Alex Ferguson is not here anymore. Tomorrow, between the two managers, we're speaking about six or seven Premier League titles, I think. I have three, he has three or four I don't know.

"Does that mean that we should be respected, even in periods where our results are not the best? I think Mr Wenger has that respect from all of you. I don't think I have. Especially because my last title was 18 months ago, not 18 years ago. But I just follow my way because I want to win a fourth Premier League."
