Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a fresh dig at Arsene Wenger. The Portuguese has criticized the success record of the Arsenal manager. This was after United drew 1-1 with the Gunners at Old Trafford last Saturday.
“The Arsenal manager hasn’t won a championship in 14 years. I haven’t won a championship in 18 months. He, in 14 years, failed to build a team to be champion. I’ve been here for four months. And the demand is only for me and not for others.” Mourinho said to ESPN Brasil.

Mourinho is still unbeaten in the Premier League against Arsenal. The 53-year-old claimed that he is at a higher standard to Wenger and the other managers of the Premier League.
“It must be because of the career I’ve made. Because I got to the clubs and always won right away.” Mourinho added.
Wenger last won the Premier League title with Arsenal in 2004. The Frenchman has since gone on to win three FA Cups.
Meanwhile, Mourinho has clinched three Premier League titles with Chelsea in that time. He has also won two titles with Inter Milan along with a Champions League trophy. He has also won a La Liga title with Real Madrid, according to Mirror.

The Portuguese manager has stressed on the word “stability” to find success in the Premier League.
“Manchester really live in a period that needs stability. A stability that the club wants to give me, a stability that the club gives me, a stability that the fans give me, but that the press does not accept very well.” Mourinho said.
