Even though it has been two and a half years since Arsene Wenger left English football, the bad blood between him and Jose Mourinho does not seem to have gone away.
The former Arsenal boss has been doing a series of interviews over the last few weeks to promote his new book, ‘My Life in Red and White’.
When Mourinho was asked why his name did not appear once in the book, the Spurs boss cheekily suggested that it was because the Frechman never got the better of him (Football.London).
Needless to say, the Portuguese coach’s comments went down very well with some Spurs fans, who have no love lost for Wenger after he spent over two decades in charge of their fierce North London rivals.
However, it turns out that Wenger and Mourinho may come face to face once again in the not too distant future as the former Arsenal boss revealed that Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy has invited him to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
When asked if he will come back to England to watch a game, Wenger told The Daily Mail: “I will one day. Apparently, Tottenham have a fantastic new stadium. I’ve been invited by Daniel Levy.”
Let’s take a look at how some Spurs fans reacted to the claim:
Grow up. Wenger is a premier league legend whether we like him or not.

After all he’s been through, don’t you think he deserves to see football played properly?

Thank you. He’s a class act and an all-time great, as far as I am concerned. Did a lot for football.

Let’s treat him well so that we can show our class unlike Woolwich

I quite miss the bloke if I’m honest. NLDs have lost their edge a bit without him.
