Wenger Gives A 'Matured' Reply To Mourinho's Threat
Arsene Wenger has laughed off suggestions made by Jose Mourinho that he would break his face.
Mourinho's comments were logged in a new biography of the Manchester United manager by football writer Rob Beasley, serialised by Sportsmail this week.
The Portuguese, who had previously branded Wenger 'a specialist in failure' told Beasley during a conversation in 2014: When Mr Wenger criticises CFC and Man United over the deal with Mata... I will find him one day outside a football pitch and I will break his face.
Honestly, for me it was always just a big game and the personal rivalry existed stronger before was never in my head a concern, he said.
It's always a big game and Chelsea in the last 10 years have very strong teams. You realise that today as well.
Before that period we were always beating them, then they were the stronger. Now it looks like it's a new era, it's a bit more balanced again and we have a good opportunity to change what I call the inconvenient facts of recent years.
