There is clash that is going on involving Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger which has extended for over 10 years as the managers of each club critique the other one and it continues to capture the attention of the media.
One of the latest things that Wenger said is that Chelsea’s defensive style is easier to implement in a match and master in comparison to Arsenal’s but Mourinho responded by saying: “It’s not easy. If it was easy, you wouldn’t lose 3-1 at home to Monaco. If he defends well he draws 0-0 against Monaco and wins in Monte Carlo. It’s not easy to prepare a team to defend.”
Arsenal was knocked out from the Champions League round of 16 after losing against As.Monaco and Mourinho reminded Wenger about that incident which occurred a few weeks ago.
Even though Chelsea is positioned at the top of the Premier League, they have received continuous bashing from their playing style and especially Jose Mourinho who has had to play on a defensive method of play for certain matches in different situations. This style has been labeled as: ‘’Parking the Bus’’ and Arsene Wenger stated that this playing style is easy to master but then Mourinho responded by saying that it wasn’t so easy to do taking into consideration that Arsenal was knocked out of the Champions League after losing against As.Monaco.
The verbal attacks didn’t stop there as the Portuguese coach continued bashing Arsenal and Arsene Wenger after saying that CescFabregas joined Chelsea because he wanted to win titles and winning major pieces of silverware is something that Arsenal has struggled on doing for the past 10 years.
The latest title that Arsenal secured was the FA Cup but some clubs and managers don’t really consider that piece of silverware to be a major one in comparison to the Premier League or the Champions League.
It’s been over 11 years since Arsenal has managed to win the Premier League title and they have never won the Champions League. Chelsea on the other hand are huge favorites on being crowned as the champions of England and this is why Jose Mourinho said those words involving Fabregas making a move to Chelsea because he wanted to win major titles as it wouldn’t happen in Arsenal.
