Mourinho was not always Wengerâ€™s closest ally during the Special Oneâ€™s time as Chelsea manager.
â€œIt is always nice to hear good things about your team, especially from people who are in the job and know the job,â€™â€™ said Wenger, who acknowledged that such kind messages were not usually expected from Mourinho.
â€œNot especially, no. I believe he is honest and speaks about what he sees and thinks. I hope we will be at the level he puts us for the whole season.â€™â€™
