Wenger reveals why he turned down Man United job

We want second place, that's the aim, but we can not look beyond this game. I must say as well it is very hard when you play against fellow managers, they get reported things that you have not necessarily said.

"They will go through the motions perhaps. But I was always, I think, loyal to this club". Mourinho's behaviour has been appalling, not just with Wenger but with everyone, particularly Wenger.

"I speak to everybody. He is a tramp, Mourinho, to be truthful".

The French tactician was expected to field his strongest possible squad against a team led by Jose Mourinho, a man he has often failed to conquer in several league meetings both as manager of Chelsea and now, Manchester United, especially in their last meeting in the current dispensation.

It even got physical at Stamford Bridge four years ago when Wenger shoved Mourinho, but the Portuguese delivered an unexpectedly warm tribute following the news that Wenger was leaving Arsenal.


Wenger was famously sent to the stands during Arsenal's 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford in 2009, leading to one of the Premier League's most iconic images when he could not find a spare seat.

"If he respects me even 50pc of what I respect him, we can even be friends in the future", he said.

One of Arsene Wenger's darkest moments in charge of Arsenal, and at a time when some of the Gunners' fanbase really started to question the leadership and authority of a man who had given them so many sensational triumphs in English football.

"Don't push me into a final confrontation because I want to go peacefully". We all suffer defeats, we all suffer disappointment and we all know that we suffer a lot. "At the moment I'm not ready to commit to anything else", Wenger said in his pre-match media conference on Wednesday. The unprecedented triumph is without question the Frenchman's greatest achievement in north London, and perhaps the greatest achievement of any manager in Premier League history.
