Petr Cech has admitted that Arsene Wenger’s philosophy is completely different to Jose Mourinho’s win-at-all-costs mentality.

The Arsenal manager has found himself under intense pressure in recent weeks after his Gunners side made a poor start to the Premier League season.

The Gunners were thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool in their most recent Premier League outing to leave them in 16th place in the table and with just three points from their opening three games.

Wenger has failed to guide Arsenal to the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.

Cech, meanwhile, enjoyed multiple title successes under Mourinho during his spells at Chelsea.

And the Arsenal goalkeeper has highlighted the differences between Wenger and Mourinho’s approaches to games.

Cech is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “When he [Mourinho] arrived at Chelsea from Porto, he brought the main thing: he came from a club where it was not acceptable to him to finish second of the championship.

“He brought the same spirit in Chelsea. He thinks only about victory, whatever the price.

“He hates draws. If we returned to the dressing room with a draw, it was known that he would not be satisfied.

“On the other hand, he also wanted be able to keep a 1-0 or beat a team 5-0 if possible. No matter how, Mourinho wants the result.

“The philosophy at Arsenal is completely opposed to this.

“It is not win at all costs but we want to win with a good way of playing. This is beginning to change in our approach.”

Cech will be expecting to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners take on Bournemouth in their next Premier League game on Saturday afternoon.
