It’s no secret that Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho don’t like each other, but it’s not often you can catch that animosity in a photograph.

That wasn’t the case on Saturday.

As the two managers met for the traditional pre-game handshake, they couldn’t even bear to look at each other:

I don’t blame Wenger, after all, Jose Mourinho has shown an obsession level with the Arsenal manager that would get him a restraining order in any other world.

And, thanks to Mourinho, we know he doesn’t like Wenger because Wenger gets respect and he doesn’t.


Should try not being such a twat then, shouldn’t you?

After the game, he still couldn’t let it go, heard muttering ‘Finally lost to Arsene, finally lost to Arsene, finally lost to Arsene’ as he left his press conference. FYI, Jose, you lost to Arsene in the Community Shield Final last season.

I’d be worried about his mental health if I cared about him at all.

I don’t.

He’s hurting tonight.

That makes me happy.
