Manchester United v Arsenal: Wenger reveals last thing he’ll tell Mourinho

Published

on

Arsene Wenger has disclosed the final word he would say to Jose Mourinho when Arsenal confront Manchester United on Sunday.

He said he would say goodbye to Mourinho and Manchester United fans.

He pleaded with long-time rival, Mourinho not to goad him.

It would be the last meeting with Mourinho as Arsenal manager after the 68-year-old Frenchman announced he would be leaving at the end of the season.

Wenger, during his reign at Emirate, had frequently come to verbal blows with Mourinho – and they even had a touchline scuffle.

Earlier, Mourinho had insisted he regrets many of his squabbles with Wenger.

Asked about his final meeting with Mourinho, Wenger told reporters, “Don’t push me into a final confrontation because I want to go peacefully.

“Mourinho is a great manager. I will say goodbye to Mourinho and to everybody.”

However, Wenger also hinted that, while he is leaving Arsenal, this will not necessarily be his last meeting with either United or Mourinho.

He added, “In France we say, “Au revoir” — which means, ‘We might see you again!’

“Will I be friends with Mourinho? I don’t know. I respect him a lot.

“I don’t know what kind of reception I will get from the United fans but there have been some great battles between us. So if I get a good reception, I will take it.”

Arsenal have been charged by the Football Association (FA) over the pitch invasion that occurred during Sunday’s Premier League game against Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.

This is coming after the Gunners defeated Rennes 3-0 in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 second-leg tie on Thursday night at Emirates.

The incident occurred in the 69th minute of Arsenal’s 2-0 victory when a supporter ran on to the field to celebrate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal and shoved Man United defender, Chris Smalling.

He then approached Arsenal’s players with his arms aloft before stewards escorted him off the pitch.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the man was later arrested.

“Arsenal FC has been charged with breaches of FA Rule E20(a)and (b),” the FA said in a statement.

“It is alleged the club failed to ensure that its spectator(s) conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from encroaching onto the pitch during the Premier League fixture against Manchester United on Sunday.”

Arsenal have until March 22 to respond to the charge.

Pitch invasions in England and Scotland over the weekend have raised fears for player safety, with those in the game warning of potential tragedy unless firm action is taken to tackle the problem.

Before the incident at Arsenal, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish was punched in the face by a man in a Championship (second tier) game at local rivals Birmingham City.

While in Scotland, Rangers captain, James Tavernier was attacked at Hibernian.
