Wenger Blasts ‘Disrespectful’ Mourinho

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger continued the war of words with Jose Mourinho on Sunday, calling the Chelsea coach’s criticism of him 48 hours earlier “silly disrespectful remarks”.
On Friday, Mourinho dubbed the Frenchman “a specialist in failure” for going almost nine years without winning a trophy.
Wenger was then on solid ground to offer a withering response after Arsenal edged a rousing FA Cup fifth-round tie against Liverpool 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
“I don’t want to get into those silly disrespectful remarks”, Wenger told BT Sport television.
“I never spoke about him in my press conference and I will not start that. The only thing I know, it’s more embarrassing for Chelsea than for me. “I am embarrassed for him … honestly”.
Twenty-four hours after Mourinho’s verbal attack on Wenger, his Chelsea side lost 2-0 at Manchester City in their fifth-round encounter.
