Arsenal fans and Jose Mourinho have always had a special relationship. The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss has had a lot to say about our club over the years, and now that he’s Tottenham’s manager, the animosity has gone to another level.
Mourinho has been quiet with respect to Arsenal for a while now. That is surprising but everyone knew it wouldn’t last forever.
The Spurs boss has responded to Mesut Ozil’s tweet about Tottenham yesterday. The German was asked in a Q&A if he would join Spurs or retire. Ozil, predictably, picked the latter, and that annoyed multiple Tottenham supporters.
Mourinho was asked about his former playmaker’s tweet and the Spurs boss wasn’t impressed.
He told Football London in his press conference today: “Who told him that Tottenham would be interested in signing him?”
Arsenal fans thoroughly enjoyed that
Annoying Mourinho is always funny. The Spurs boss has had his problems with Arsenal fans in the past, and every time someone from our club gets one over him, it is a good watch.
One Arsenal fan claimed that Ozil has rattled Mourinho with his tweet, while another one called the Spurs boss’ response as ‘weak’.
