Chelsea manager is renowned for his wicked statements and loves setting headlines for the press. Over the years we have seen more than a few headlines based on Mourinho’s comments.
Much has been talked about the continuing transfer saga of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The latest reports suggest that now even gunners are back in contention to sign the England international.
Mourinho is convinced that Rooney wants to leave Old Trafford and that is the reason he is looking to secure his services before the end of transfer window. However, he did claim it all depends on the striker himself who started the whole situation.
Discussing that scenario, he perhaps pointed out at the way Arsenal dealt the transfer saga of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. Did Mourinho taunt Arsenal with his statement? As he claimed:
“A club like us, a manager like me, the people that work in the club with me, we are not silly to try to get a player from a big club that doesn’t sell what they don’t want to sell.”
Arsenal were well aware of the fact that Luis Suarez is not for sale. Liverpool reiterated many times that they are not going to sell their prized asset.
Still, Arsenal wasted a lot of time, continued bidding for the Uruguayan and that too way below what he is actually worth before finally giving up.
Whether or not Mourinho did taunt Arsenal is another matter. For now, both Chelsea and gunners are in for Rooney. Will he stay at Manchester United or not, we shall have the answer soon in the coming days.
