I think the obsession goes both ways, but Ian Wright, who is a former Arsenal striker is clearly prejudiced as he thinks Mourinho is obsessed with Wenger.
Wenger and Mourinho have been involved in one drama or the other, with the recent one coming on the back of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal.
Mourinho was incensed that Costa was punished for a retrospective clash with Koscielny resulting in a three-match ban after Wenger urged officials to do so.
The Chelsea boss then went on to criticise his colleague for failing to win the EPL in a decade and claiming he gets preferential treatment from officials.
“His obsession with Wenger is mystifying. I just can’t understand it,” Wright told The Sun.
“There’s something that happens with him whenever he talks or thinks about Arsene. He gets antagonised all the time.
“I think the big problem is that Jose looks at Arsene and his treatment from the media.
“Jose rightly feels Arsene hasn’t achieved as much as he has. I think his issue is that Arsene has not won as much or achieved as much as he has – yet still gets as many plaudits. It just irks him that Arsene doesn’t get more criticism.
“What I can’t understand is why it irks him so much when he’s got the medals to show everybody what he’s about. He just can’t be happy with himself, for some reason, even though what he does is brilliant.”
