Jose Mourinho, West London’s best known grey-haired, weasel-faced, Portuguese prick, has consolidated his credentials as English football’s biggest hypocrite by indulging in a rant about Arsene Wenger’s supposed moaning…before whining himself at length about the injustice of Chelsea’s fixture schedule compared to that of Arsenal.
Yesterday Wenger was asked by the media for his take on the imminent £37 million transfer of Juan Mata from Chelsea to Manchester United. The boss confirmed that he was surprised by the move, possibly given the Blues unwillingness to lend us Demba Ba earlier in the season, while also taking the opportunity to question the necessity of a mid-season transfer window.
“I am surprised because Juan Mata is a great player and Chelsea sell a great player to a direct opponent,” Wenger told his pre-Coventry press conference.
“It opens again a little bit the opportunity of this transfer market because Chelsea had already played twice against Man United so they don’t play again.
“They could have sold him last week but it opens at least the opportunity [to question] the dates of this transfer window. Some teams have already played twice against one opponent and some others not. I think if you want to respect the fairness for everybody exactly the same, that should not happen.
“I just think you would want that everybody is on the same level. Chelsea do not make the rules but maybe the rules should be a bit more adapted to more fairness.”
As you might expect from such a classless little shit, Mourinho’s barbed retort was decidedly more personal. Taking aim at what he called Wenger’s ‘nature’ the Chelsea manager stated: “Wenger complaining is normal because he always does. It’s something that we know.
“When a player plays for a club on August 20th and, two weeks later, on September 5th, plays against the same club with a different shirt, this is normal. This is the market. We don’t do the market, we don’t do the rules. We have just to do according to the rules.
“If Wenger sells [Mesut] Ozil to Man United in this moment, I will be very happy because he’s selling a very important player. I’m not concerned with other things. So, normally, he should be very happy that Chelsea sold a player like Juan Mata. But I think it’s also a bit of his nature. We have to accept the way he is.”
Showing all the self-awareness of a drink-driving Justin Bieber, Mourinho then went out of his way to make clear that the real victims of world football are Chelsea whose run of games compared to Arsenal’s is apparently ‘always’ unfavourable.
“I think what is not fair is that his team always has the best days to play. Always. Always. In the Capital One Cup, we had to play 24 hours after. They had 72 hours. That’s not fair.
“This week, a week without a midweek game, what everyone wants to do is play before to rest ahead of next week. One plays on Friday, another on Sunday. Who plays Friday? Who plays Sunday?
“When you go to the fixtures this season, it’s never fair because they always get the right to rest and the right time to play. It’s fantastic. That’s not fair.”
It’s almost as if the odious toad is rattled.
