Photograph: Mark Thompson/Getty Images Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Shares00 Share on Pinterest Share on Twitter Sachin Nakrani Share on Facebook Soccer Share via Email A day after Jose Mourinho said he wanted to return to football and “kill” his former club Chelsea, his one-time adversary Arsène Wenger described anyone having such a need as suffering from a lack of self-worth and with a twisted view of sport.The Arsenal manager did not refer to Mourinho directly when making his claim but was responding to comments made by the Portuguese in Valencia on Thursday. The chagrin in his tone spoke of the many disputes the pair engaged in during Mourinho’s more than three years in charge at Stamford Bridge.”Why should you always have to kill other people to exist yourself? If you do that, then somewhere, you feel you are not good enough,” Wenger said. “If you have to come out all the time to destroy people, what is life about? Winning and destroying people can never be everything.”The Frenchman’s ire was initially raised by Mourinho’s suggestion that Arsenal are a “unique team” because their manager has not won a trophy for almost three years but remains an idol at the club.Wenger, whose side are top of the Premier League and have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, responded by saying that for him, playing football in an exciting manner is as important as collecting silverware, a contrast to Mourinho who deployed pragmatic tactics in winning five major trophies at Chelsea, including two league championships .”Somebody can say that if you don’t win trophies, then you’re no one. For me sport is more than just winning ,” Wenger said. ” A trophy is what you can show, but what remains is the way you play and the way you behave, that is also important.”I don’t feel under more pressure to win trophies this year than any other year. I try to do my job as well as I can. If it’s not good enough, people will tell me. I know many people who have won trophies and I don’t rate them at all.”Wenger added that negotiations have begun on a new five-year contract for Mathieu Flamini. The French midfielder’s current deal expires this summer. Soccer Arsène Wenger Share on Messenger Share via Emaillast_img read more
