Jamie Carragher: This is how the Arsenal and Man United managers feel about each other

Jamie Carragher has his say on the relationship between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho

Jamie Carragher believes that there really is no love lost between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho.

The Arsenal and Manchester United manager have a heated history and it is no secret that they have rarely seen eye-to-eye.

Mourinho incurred the wrath of Wenger when he famously branded him a “specialist in failure” during his second spell in charge at Chelsea, and the pair have also had their fair share of touchline spats.

And former Liverpool defender believes that the pair’s contrasting styles makes for an entertaining rivalry in the Premier League.

Writing in his column for The Daily Mail, before Manchester United’s clash with Arsenal on Saturday, Carragher said: “There will be courtesy in front of the cameras but that is as far as it goes.

“Mourinho couldn’t think of anything worse than being loved but not being a serial winner. He can’t understand the idea Wenger can retain popularity but not retain titles. He made that clear in Friday’s press conference.

“Yet what about Wenger? He will shake hands with Mourinho before kick-off at Old Trafford and one thought will run through his mind: I’d rather be anybody but you.”

Wenger’s Arsenal finished second in the Premier League and without a trophy last season.

United, meanwhile, ended up in fifth place and with the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal before he was sacked and replaced by Mourinho back in May.
