Arsenal hero Wilson brands Mourinho comments "despicable, disgusting"

Arsenal hero Bob Wilson has hit out at Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, branding him a "boring bully". The former Arsenal goalkeeper, angry at Mourinho's recent remarks about Arsene Wenger being "a specialist in failure", also described Mourinho's comments as "disrespectful" and "despicable".

Wilson said: "I think at best it was disrespectful, at worst despicable to be so dismissive of a genuinely good guy and a footballing man I think, whose presence in England in 17-18 years has opened eyes and ears and created wonderfully entertaining sides.

"It's obviously not the first time Mourinho has singled Arsene out. He called him a voyeur which is a disgusting claim and thankfully on that occasion he - although belatedly - he did apologise.

"I think it's personal, he is hugely talented, amazing manager Mourinho but I find - at this moment - I find him boring at the moment.

"To call (City boss Manuel) Pellgrini the abuse that he's called him to do with Arsene, this is a weekend when we honour a gent - Tom Finney, Sir Tom, and I don't like bullies."
