José Mourinho and Arsene Wenger lock horns once again.
Arsenal and Manchester United renew acquaintances at Old Trafford on Saturday. The fixture is of course biblical for the heated on-field exchanges of yesteryear but has been noticeably blunted as of late given that neither club has harboured genuine title aspirations in recent years. The temperature is set to be taken up a notch this weekend however, though not necessarily for on-field reasons.
This year the game will see Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho lock horns again and thus stoke the flames of the rivalry that keeps on giving. A bitter feud first ignited over a decade ago during Mourinho’s first stint at Chelsea has ebbed and flowed for the succeeding years and could be set to reach new heights on Saturday.
The prospect has spawned a plethora of promotional videos for the managerial joust rather than the match itself, and given the history of the two coaches it’s hard to argue with that angle. Watch the pick of the bunch below:
One of the most compelling managerial rivalries football can offer today. Although as Jose might say, it can’t be a rivalry when it’s been so one-sided.
Nonetheless it is a crucial tie for both sides, and is all the more fascinating given the sub-plot.
