Wilson hits out at “boring bully” Mourinho
Arsenal legend Bob Wilson has described Jose Mourinho as a boring bully and says his recent remarks concerning Gunners boss Arsene Wenger were “disrespectful” and “despicable”.
The former Arsenal and Scotland goalkeeper has responded angrily to Chelsea manager Mourinho’s recent comments in which he called Wenger “a specialist in failure”.
“I think at best it was disrespectful, at worst despicable to be so dismissive of a genuinely good guy and a footballing man I think, whose presence in England in 17-18 years has opened eyes and ears and created wonderfully entertaining sides,” Wilson told BBC Five Live’s Sportsweek programme.
“It’s obviously not the first time Mourinho has singled Arsene out. He called him a voyeur which is a disgusting claim and thankfully on that occasion he – although belatedly – he did apologise.
“I think it’s personal, he is hugely talented, amazing manager Mourinho but I find – at this moment – I find him boring at the moment.
“To call (City boss Manuel) Pellgrini the abuse that he’s called him to do with Arsene, this is a weekend when we honour a gent – Tom Finney, Sir Tom, and I don’t like bullies.”
Mourinho made his “specialist in failure” comment on Friday in response to Wenger’s claims that the Premier League title is Chelsea’s to lose.
