Jose Mourinho has continued his war of words with Arsene Wenger by declaring that he does not respect the Arsenal manager’s past achievements.

Mourinho described Wenger as a “specialist in failure” on Friday due to the Arsenal boss not having led the Gunners to a trophy since 2005.

His remarks came after the Frenchman had claimed that the Chelsea boss was afraid of failing in the Premier League title race.

He is not respecting my past and because he does not respect this I do not respect his past

And the Portuguese coach refused to quell the war of words after Chelsea’s 2-0 FA Cup loss at Manchester City on Saturday.

“When he says that I am afraid of failure he is not respecting my past and because he does not respect this I do not respect his past,” Mourinho told ITV.

“That’s my answer. It’s an answer that doesn’t make me happy, but an answer that I think he deserves.”

Mourinho’s latest comments come after he continued the war of words by saying: “He [Wenger] is a specialist in failure.

“The reality is that he is a specialist. He is eight years without a piece of silverware. If I do that with Chelsea, I leave and I don’t come back.”
