Jose Mourinho has said some words at his Chelsea press conference ahead of his side’s Champions League clash and parts of the media are already starting to turn it into something that it most likely isn’t.
Speaking to the assembled journalists, the under-fire Chelsea boss said about his side’s recent form “It is a big problem for us because our life is about getting good results.
“But in other clubs you have to go back 2, 3, 4 years, 5, 6, 10 years to remember good results.
“In our case you just have to go back three months, and three months ago we were the best team in the country, the best manager, the best players. So we are not happy, but we know what we are.”
This has already spawned headlines such as ‘Jose Mourinho slams journalist and appears to take sly dig at Arsene Wenger during Chelsea press conference’ and I’m sure that is only the first of many that will come.
He named six time-frames, why is it automatically about Arsenal?
Now we all know that he has a history of having digs at Arsene Wenger and, perhaps, this was one, but even if it was do we really have to give him the satisfaction of highlighting it?
Let him have his petty little squabbles with himself.
The truth of the matter is that it is Jose’s own insecurities regarding Arsene that drive him to spew drivel on a semi-constant basis.
He can’t stand that he has not been able to win the respect of his peers the way Arsene has, no matter how many trophies he has won.
To him, winning is all that matters.
To Arsene, running a club is about so much more than that.
Until Jose can realise the difference, he’ll never get what he wants more than all the medals in the world – to be respected as much as Arsene.
