Jose Mourinho: Arsene Wenger will always be the king despite failures on the pitch


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has taken a fresh swipe at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, saying he will always be "the king" at the club who will never be under pressure.

Opting not to specify but making it obvious who he was referring to, the Portuguese was answering questions about the Football Association's decision to suspend Diego Costa for three games and Gabriel Paulista for one.

Wenger was furious with referee Mike Dean at the end of last week's game asking the Football Association to investigate the Spaniard after the final whistle.

"He can speak about referees, push people in the technical areas, can cry in the morning and afternoon, nothing happens," Mourinho told reporters on Friday.

"Cannot achieve, keep his job, can still be the king, it is privilege.

"In this country only one manager is not under pressure, every other manager is under pressure.

"Manuel Pellegrini, Brendan Rodgers, Steve McClaren. We cannot lose matches, we cannot be below expectations.

"You know [who I'm talking about]."
