Jose Mourinho praises Louis van Gaal, takes fresh swipe at Arsene Wenger


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has a "dream job" at the Emirates.

The Gunners went nine years without winning a trophy, ending the drought last year with their FA Cup win over Hull City and Mourinho says not many managers can afford the luxury to go nine years without a trophy.

This is not the first time the Portuguese has criticised the Frenchman, labeling the Arsenal boss a "voyeur" in 2005 and a "specialist in failure" last year.

"He [Arsene Wenger] has a dream job that we'd all love to have," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"I think every manager in the world would like the stability by being here year after year after year, to buy to sell and rebuild and wait and wait for success.

"I don't understand why they [Arsenal] are not where we are with Manchester City because I like that team very much.

"I think they have very good players. Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck are very important to add to an already very good squad. I think they are a team with more to give."

But the Portuguese had kinder words for Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.

"He's a fantastic coach and a fantastic person," he said.

"I know him so well. Players need to adapt and understand to perform at the highest level and it's the same with us. I think Louis will have his time to make United win titles again.

"This season they have a chance in the FA Cup and a chance to finish in the top four and go back to the Champions League."
