Don’t retire, Jose Mourinho tells Arsene Wenger

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has told Arsene Wenger not to retire from management after the Frenchman announced his decision to step down from Arsenal.

Arsenal sent shockwaves through English football this morning when the Gunners released a brief statement announcing that Wenger was to leave the club after 22 years at the end of the season.

Mourinho and Wenger have clashed on a number of occasions since the Portuguese moved to England in 2004 and the Frenchman’s beaten the self-proclaimed Special One just once in competitive matches in the last 14 years.

However, Mourinho praised Wenger for his work at Arsenal and said he hopes the Frenchman continues management elsewhere.

“If he’s happy i’m happy. If he’s sad, I’m sad,” said Mourinho.

“I always wish the best for my opponents. I always wish the best so that’s the point – if he’s happy with the decision he made, if he looks forward to the next chapter of his career then i’m happy for him.

“I know what it means to win three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups but not just that. What he did in Japan, France, to the French national team, what he gave to Arsenal even without a period of Premier League titles, the transition from the [old] stadium. ‘Everything he did we know. If he’s happy with the decision I’m really happy. I hope he doesn’t retire from football.”

Wenger steps down from Arsenal having won 10 trophies in 21 seasons at the club, including three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups. The Gunners take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on the 29th April but their focus will be on the semi-finals of the Europa League with both legs sandwiched between their trip to Old Trafford.
