Chelsea Manager JosÃ© Mourinho says he doesn’t explode with happiness when he beats Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.
The pair have a long-standing rivalry and Arsene Wenger has been unable to beat Mourinho in 13 attempts, with Mourinho describing the Frenchman as a specialist in failure 18 months ago.
Chelsea face Arsenal on Sunday in the community shield, with Arsenal hoping to win it back to back. Will Mourinho eat his words?
When asked if he takes pride in his record against Wenger, Mourinho replied: â€No. It doesnâ€™t matter, Arsenal, the manager, whoever.
“I think [the Community Shield is] in between. It’s more than a friendly, like with Barcelona and PSG [friendlies], but it’s less than a league game. Different motivation.
“Who knows?” he said when questioned on Wenger’s ability to win. “Iâ€™ve never made a special thing about wins over Arsenal. I donâ€™t explode with happiness when I beat them, and I wonâ€™t make drama when I lose.”
Mourinho has confirmed that Gary Cahill and Diego Costa will be fit to play on Sunday after picking up knocks against Barcelona.
