Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho aimed a new jibe at rival Arsene Wenger during his press conference on Friday afternoon.
The Portuguese tactician is unimpressed by the way many Premier League managers are under pressure after a poor result or two, while he believes that the Arsenal boss seemingly gets an easier ride.
This isn’t the first time that the former Inter boss has targeted Wenger, as he labelled the French tactician a “specialist in failure” in February last year, according to BBC Sport.
Chelsea currently sit in 15th place in the Premier League ahead of their clash with fellow strugglers Newcastle United, with Steve McLaren having also faced significant scrutiny after a poor start to the campaign.
Meanwhile, the likes of Brendan Rodgers have also come under fire at times this season, as reported by Sky Sports, while Mourinho, without naming the Frenchman, suggests that Wenger is allowed to get on with his job regardless of falling below the club’s high standards and objectives.
Mourinho also hadn’t forgotten about the altercation with the Gunners boss last season, as noted by Sky Sports, during which he was shoved in the technical area, while he bemoaned the “crying” that his opposite number has done after their defeat to the Premier League champions last Saturday.
There is evidently no love lost between the pair, although Wenger avoided specifically addressing his counterpart in his press conference earlier in the day.
Arsenal are currently in fifth spot ahead of facing Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, while the Blues take on Newcastle in the evening kickoff.
Although the pair are unlikely to ever see eye-to-eye, there is an argument to suggest that both managers would be better served focusing on their own respective teams rather than criticising one another about previous events.
