Jose Mourinho took an astonishing swipe at Arsene Wenger, Arsenal’s fans and their lack of major trophies.

Gunners boss Wenger enjoyed his first ever win over Mourinho in 16 competitive meetings but could not resist a dig at the celebrations in the Emirates.

Mourinho was also upset by Wenger and accused him of trying to influence fourth official Craig Pawson during the game, although the bitter managerial rivals shook hands afterwards

“Arsenal fans are happy and I’m happy for them. It’s the first time I leave and they’re happy.

“I leave Highbury they were crying. I leave the Emirates, they were crying, walking the streets with heads low.

“Today they leave waving their scarves. It’s a big club. You think I enjoy a big club like Arsenal not winning trophies? I don’t enjoy. But today I tried to win.

“Arsene Wenger is not a small manager, he’s a big manager, to have that record of winning so many matches is not normal. Normal is win, lose, draw. I really don’t care about it today. No problems.

“We shook hands but during the game I don’t like what I never like. He puts too much pressure on the fourth official every time.”
