Mourinho Makes Interesting Confession About Wenger Ahead of Arsenal-Manchester Utd Clash

In one of the most exciting football showdowns, Arsenal will battle it out with Jose Mourinho’s men for three points.
Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger will face Mourinho’s Manchester United on Saturday
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has complained that his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger, is shown more respect that him ahead of their Premier League showdown on Saturday.
According to AFP, Mourinho, 53, has regularly clashed with Wenger, 67, over the course of his two spells as Chelsea manager and his current role at United is not happy with that fact.
“In the Premier League, going just on the Premier League, tomorrow is a match between the two managers with the best record. Sir Alex Ferguson isn’t here anymore,” Mourinho said.
“Tomorrow, I think between the two managers we are speaking about, I think (there are) six or seven Premier League titles. I have three, he has three or four.
 
“Does that mean we should be respected, even in periods where our results are not the best? I think Mr Wenger has that respect from all of you. I don’t think I have.
 
“Especially because my last Premier League title was 18 months ago, not 18 years ago. I don’t think I get that respect.
 
“But to be honest, I just follow my way because I want to win a ninth championship and I want to win a fourth Premier League.”
Wenger will attempt to do what he has never done before – beat Mourinho in a league game.
 
“Some records are better than others,” he told reporters at United’s training base in Carrington, west of Manchester.
 
“But in the end, a football match is an isolated event, nothing to do with what happened before, nothing to do with what can happen in the future.”
While speaking about his players, he said Rooney was “ready” to face Arsenal after withdrawing from England duty with a minor knee injury.
 
“Chris Smalling you cannot ask,” Mourinho said. “You cannot ask because you have your sources, you trust your sources, you believe in your sources.
 
“You write what your sources tell you and you did that for 15 days, so now you are now not going to ask me to comment on your sources’ information, so I don’t say a word about Chris Smalling.
 
“You have your trustful relationship with your sources and you wrote, you spoke, you criticise, so that’s fine for me.
 
“You do the big headlines with your sources and now I am not interested in commenting on that.”
He also gave approval for Luke Shaw and said: “Luke Shaw I comment, yes,” he said. “He worked well in this period where we had a very small group, which is not the best, but he worked really well.
 
“He is ready to play. I don’t have any problem with him. I am not saying he plays or he doesn’t play tomorrow.
 
“I am saying that he is my player, a young player with potential. A young player like every young player with little problems, with things he needs to learn, things he needs to improve.
 
“But he is a player of my confidence and playing now five matches in two weeks like we are going to do, in three different competitions, for sure he is going to play.”

Here Is The Reason Cristiano Ronaldo May Dump Real Madrid This Summer

Reports coming from Portugal indicate that four times World Footballer of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo, is set to dump Real Madrid.

Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola has this morning claimed the Real Madrid striker is angry at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and has expressed his wish to leave the country.

Ronaldo denies the accusation and A Bola say the 32-year-old striker has made the “irreversible” decision to leave the club, and has informed his teammates of his intentions.

Spanish prosecutors have accused the Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding the authorities of 14.7 million euros in tax, an accusation Ronaldo is contesting.

He responded to the tax charges by posting a picture of himself ‘shushing’ at the camera along with the caption “Sometimes the best answer it’s to be quiet”.

“It is clear that the football player did not try to evade taxes,” Ronaldo’s Gestifute management company said.
