Mourinho Salutes Wenger as ‘One of the Best Managers in Football History’

Jose Mourinho has ended his feud with former rival manager Arsene Wenger following the latter’s Lifetime Achievement award at Laureus World Sports Awards on Monday.

The pair have clashed in the past while they were both in Premier League management, with Mourinho branding the Frenchman a “specialist in failure”. Wenger also pushed Mourinho during the Portuguese’s second stint in charge of Chelsea before he went on to manage Manchester United. “There were some episodes along the road,” Mourinho said in a recorded message at Monday night’s Laureus World Sports Awards. “I can only speak by myself. I really enjoyed the competition. But the real respect is always there. He made lots of history in that football club. One of the best football managers in the history of football.”
