Jose Mourinho has always been the master of mind games and will surely be considered one of the greatest managers of the Premier League. He’s only won 3 League Titles at Chelsea in a total 5 year spell, 2 of the last two came in a second spell at Chelsea after he went out in 2006 to manage Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
Mourinho holds a special record against Arsenal as the Portuguese has never lost a match against Wenger’s Arsenal. The latest story is even more interesting as he wasn’t impressed by Petr Cech’s decision to join Arsenal.
Cech is one of the best keepers in the league but was forced to sit on the bench for most of last season by Thibaut Courtois. Cech moved to Arsenal this season in a £10 million deal leaving his former manager disappointed.
Talking to ESPN, Mourinho said he wanted Cech to be happy but was disappointed by the club he chose to play for, thus taking a sly dig at Arsene Wenger and even his former player, Petr Cech.
Chelsea play Arsenal tomorrow in the Community Shield and Mourinho may have entered the minds of Wenger and Cech by this interview.
