I feel like I’m in kindergarten with him – Wenger blasts Mourinho in latest reaction on autobiography

Arsene Wenger has brushed off Jose Mourinho’s reaction to being left out of the Frenchman’s autobiography despite their fiery touchline clashes over the years, saying that dealing with the Portuguese made him feel like he was in kindergarten again.

Wenger’s autobiography, “My Life in Red and White”, looks at his 22 years at Arsenal but failed to mention his duels with Mourinho, whose Chelsea side dethroned the Frenchman’s ‘Invincibles’ in 2004-05.

Mourinho had said the reason he was not mentioned in the book was, “Because he never beat me.”

 “It doesn’t bother me. It’s permanent provocation.” Wenger told Canal Plus. “I feel like I’m in kindergarten with him. But that’s part of his personality.”

Mourinho’s rivalry with Wenger reached boiling point in 2014 when they physically clashed on the touchline in a Premier League game at Stamford Bridge.

It took Wenger 14 attempts to finally beat Mourinho, who once called him a “specialist in failure”, and he managed only two wins in 19 meetings.

 “We beat him twice. We won, and there were also a lot of draws,” Wenger added.

“It’s not ‘you’ who wins, you only participate in the victory. It’s ‘us’ who win. The manager is there to get the most out of a team.”
