Arsene Wenger has brushed off Jose Mourinho’s latest taunts after the Chelsea boss said the Gunners’ recent spending may come as “a surprise”. Mourinho tipped Arsenal as one of the main contenders to wrestle away Chelsea’s Premier League title crown this season, but not without aiming a jibe at Wenger’s recent spending habits.
“If you put Ozil plus Sanchez, plus Chambers, plus Debuchy you will maybe find a surprise,” Mourinho added, in reference to Arsenal’s spending over the last couple of seasons.
Wenger has refused to be drawn into another war of words with his long-time managerial nemesis over the recent claims however, saying he will “let other people talk”.
“One day you will look at the players we have developed here compared to the spending of other clubs and you will be surprised,” the Frenchman told reporters.
