Peace at last between Mourinho and Wenger

Share

Mourinho and Wenger enjoyed a tumultuous rivalry over the years, with the Portuguese often cutting in his criticism of his French counterpart - including once famously labelling the former Arsenal boss as a 'specialist in failure'.

Right now the Gunners sit just one point adrift the top-four spot on the Premier League table and they are also alive in the Europa League.

"I can only speak by myself".

"Amazing. A coaching philosophy, the nearly ideal team".

And Wenger questioned Ozil's motivation while claiming it would have cost the Premier League club £100million to buy a replacement for the former Germany worldwide.

Mesut Ozil missed last week's first leg as he was still feeling the effects of a sickness bug, with Emery opting to leave Arsenal's highest-paid player at home.

The United States of America (USA) in its reaction said it fully supports the decisions of the heads of ECOWAS and other worldwide missions on the postponement of the election in Nigeria.

Arsenal will be without striker Alexandre Lacazette for the second leg of their Europa League last-32 tie with Bate Borisov.

Unai Emery has held heart-to-heart talks with Mesut Ozil in an attempt to finally coax the best of the mercurial German.

Arsène Wenger believes the decision to offer Mesut Özil a long-term contract a year ago may have left the German in a "comfort zone". "Because they might be in their comfort zone", Wenger said. But that doesn't necessarily mean that they practice, they play their best.

"To buy players of top, top quality you need £100m".

"Now, this week is good for all the players, because we are in a big, important moment for the season and I look at him doing the training like we want. So the decision you have to make is whether you re-sign the player, who costs us nothing, or do we have the money to buy a new player?"
