Mourinho reveals he regrets Wenger bust-ups

The Manchester United boss has had plenty of run-ins with his counterpart at Arsenal but it seems he doesn’t still hold a grudge against the Frenchman

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he feels regret for some of the bust-ups he had with Arsene Wenger over the years.

The Gunners boss is leaving his post in the summer after almost 22 years in charge of the club, with Mourinho having previously expressed his respect for the Frenchman.

There has, however, been bad blood between the two managers over the years that has strained their relationship and often resulted in insults being exchanged.

On one occasion during his time as Chelsea manager, the Portuguese referred to Wenger as a “voyeur” and that he “likes to watch other people”.

Another controversial comment saw Mourinho call Wenger a “specialist in failure” and that he would’ve been sacked by Chelsea had he had the same record as the Gunners boss over eight years.

And, with Wenger soon to step away from Arsenal and potentially not manage in the Premier League again, Mourinho says he regrets some of the outbursts he aimed at Wenger.

He told reporters: “Regret? Little negative episodes, yes I do – and probably he also does.”

United face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday and Mourinho has revealed that he has a fully-fit squad available to him, aside from back-up goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

He added: “Everybody’s fine. I have 22 players and apart from Romero as a goalkeeper, everyone is fit to play.”
