Gone are the days where the special one would crush the opponent’s mentors into pieces. Jose Mourinho has now lost his sting, and if there is one man that should be happy about that, is Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger. Things have changed for Jose, with his below par Manchester United team, there is nothing to boast about going into the encounter against Wenger’s Arsenal.
The man has faced difficulties in the past when facing Mourinho during his Chelsea days. The former Chelsea man would out muscle Wenger everywhere, on the pitch and off the pitch in press conferences. This one is slightly different, Arsenal are flying high at the moment and Manchester United are still in the process of finding their way to the top.
However there is one thing that this match will be not short of, and that is drama. Even though Mourinho’s pride and ego has been crushed but certain circumstances especially at Chelsea, he still remains a proud man. Winning is in his DNA.
Wenger however has also been in the game long enough and will not be fooled by current situations at Old Trafford. He will make sure he wins this one just for his personal satisfaction. That is why it is going to be a special match, for on and off the pitch reasons.
