Jose Mourinho won his second trophy with Manchester United on Wednesday night and, of course, took the opportunity to have a dig at all the ‘poets’ in football.
- Mourinho and Wenger have a long-running rivalry
- United manager has won two trophies this season: the Europa League and League Cup
- Jose claims ‘poets’ don’t win anything in football
Speaking after United’s comfortable 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final, Mourinho said:
“There are lots of poets in football. The poets didn’t win many titles.”
Although he didn’t reference Arsene Wenger directly, as he hardly ever does, Arsenal’s lack of ‘titles’ over the past decade speaks for itself and it would be Classic Mourinho™ to take the opportunity to have a pop at the Frenchman since that’s one of his favourite hobbies.
Annoyingly though, I am envious of United’s two trophies this season.
Like it or not, despite playing terribly at times and finishing sixth, Mourinho has brought them silverware.
Arsenal have the chance to put things right against Chelsea on Saturday in the FA Cup final. Let’s not allow him to have the last say.
