Arsene Wenger ‘refused’ to let Jose Mourinho sit next to him

Arsene Wenger ‘refused’ to let Jose Mourinho sit next to him – Hostilities between Arsène Wenger and Jose Mourinho look set to continue after the Arsenal manager refused to let his Manchester United counterpart sit next to him at a Uefa coaching conference.

The pair attended the meeting in Nyon with several other top European coaches on the recent transfer deadline day, which began with a speech by Sir Alex Ferguson.

According to Marca, Mourinho arrived slightly late and was the last to enter the busy room where Ferguson was speaking.

When he spotted a free seat next to Wenger, opposite Unai Emery, the Paris Saint-Germain manager, and Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid head coach, he asked whether he could occupy it.

Wenger is said to have then deadpanned: “No, it isn’t possible,” provoking laughs from the other coaches in the room.

The incident is the latest in the pair’s long-standing spat, which dates back to Mourinho’s first spell in English football at Chelsea.

Mourinho and Wenger have had a long term feud between each other with Mourinho labeling Wenger a ‘specialist in failure’after Wenger criticized his style of play and in October 2014, Wenger shoved Mourinho during a high-tempered contest at Stamford Bridge.
