The Uefa coaches’ conference ended last week with Arsenal Coach refusing Mourinho to sit next to him. Spanish sports newspaper Marca reported that Wenger refused Mourinho to sit next to him during Sir Alex Ferguson’s opening speech in Nyon.
Mourinho who arrived late when former Manchester United manager Alex Fergusing was giving a speech allegedly asked if he could sit in one of the few empty seats. when Wenger responded: “No, it isn’t possible.”
Mourinho then moved elsewhere with the help of other coaches to find a seat. Some coaches discredited Wenger for being too sensitive.
It should be recalled that two years ago, Mourinho – then in charge of Chelsea – memorably dubbed Wenger a “specialist in failure” for going nine years without winning a trophy with the Gunners. He then refused to say sorry until the Arsenal coach himself apologised for suggesting the Portuguese was afraid of failure.
BaretaNews cannot understand why should managers take issues from the football pitch to the outside world. We find this latest action from the Arsenal coach to Mourinho as disrespectful and request Arsene Wenger to apologise for lack of sportsmanship
God is still saying something.
