Arsenal fans have been waiting for this moment for quite some time…
The level of tension between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger has been quite obvious for many a year. However, since the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ returned to Stamford Bridge for his second spell with Chelsea, the relationship between the pair reached new lows.
In February of 2014, Mourinho infamously labelled the Arsenal manager as a “specialist in failure” referring to the fact that Wenger had gone over ten years without winning the Premier League trophy.
However, in that time, the Arsenal manager has maintained an unmatched level of consistency with the London club, not once falling out of the Champions League places. With Chelsea having lost 9 of their opening 16 Premier League games and with the club currently sitting in 16th place in the table, it now seems as if Mourinho’s 2015/2016 campaign is the real lesson in failure.
Rather than take the high ground, it seems Arsenal fans have taken the opportunity to bask in Mourinho’s epic dose of karma on social media instead.
Check out some of the best Twitter reaction from Arsenal supporters below.
How many times do you have to be fired by the same club before you become a specialist in failure? #Mourinho

Imagine calling Arsene Wenger a specialist in failure then nearly getting relegated and get sacked by the same club twice. Wonderful.

He said Arsene was a “Specialist in failure”, then took Chelsea into a relegation battle only to be sacked by them for the second time

Specialist in failure. Chased out of Madrid, disgraced at Chelsea. All mouth. Your days of buying trophies are up.
