Former CNN presenter, Piers Morgan, has revealed a chat he had with Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, which covered talk about Arsenal.
Morgan, writing in his Daily Mail column, says he ran into Mourinho in upmarket department store, Harrods in London, near where his family is based, after the Gunners were battered 4-0 by Liverpool.
The two men had a 20-minute chat about football, in which Mourinho threw some brutal jabs at the Gunners and their manager, Arsene Wenger.
Morgan wrote: “I feel so sorry for you Arsenal fans,” he chuckled, not looking remotely sorry.
He quoted Mourinho saying: “I have some very good friends who love Arsenal like you do and they are just as depressed as you about the club.
“They suffer so badly, it is a terrible thing to observe. Mourinho then burst out laughing. “Terrible… hahahahaha.”
Morgan says he asked: “How the hell is Arsene Wenger still in his job?”
Mourinho’s response, as reported by Morgan, is brutal: “No idea,” Mourinho smirked. “But I hope he stays in it for a very long time…”‘
The pair took a picture, which Morgan uploaded on his Instagram page.
