Jose Mourinho: Wenger should explain how he can’t win a trophy since 2005

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho wasted no time is replying to Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman questioned the tactics of the Spanish giants after last week’s Champions League game.
According to reports, the Portuguese asked two of his players to be deliberately sent off in order to miss the last game of the Group and be back eligible for the knock-out stage of the competition with Wenger describing the whole thing as horrible and unacceptable.
But Mourinho, who led Inter Milan to an amazing hat-trick of trophies last season, is quoted as saying by the Sun how the Arsenal manager should instead focus on his team and why they haven’t won anything since 2005.
The 47-year old believes blaming the lack of trophies on the young age of players is no longer a valid excuse for Arsenal especially now that Sagna, Clichy, Walcott, Fabregas, Song, Nasri, Van Persie and Arshavin are all top players.
On Wenger, Mourinho said:
He should especially explain to Arsenal supporters how he can’t win one single little trophy since 2005.
Instead of speaking about Real Madrid, Mr Wenger should speak about Arsenal and explain how he lost 2-0 against a team in the Champions League for the first time.
The history about the young kids is getting old now.
[Bacary] Sagna, [Gael] Clichy, [Theo] Walcott, [Cesc] Fabregas, [Alex] Song, [Samir] Nasri, [Robin] Van Persie, [Andrey] Arshavin are not kids. They are all top players.
