Ex-Arsenal boss Wenger: Why Mourinho isn't in my book

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hasn't mentioned Jose Mourinho in his new book.

Wenger has given his reasons for completely omitting any mention of one-time rival Mourinho, now in charge of Tottenham, from his new book 'My Life in Red and White'.

Tensions between Wenger and Mourinho came to a head in 2014 when they physically clashed on the touchline following a disagreement.

They also exchanged a number of barbs in press conferences, with Mourinho calling Wenger a "voyeur" and a "specialist in failure".

When asked about the lack of Mourinho, however, Wenger simply answered: "I didn't want to make a book that sorts out some differences. I wanted it to be a positive book. I had more acrimonious battles with Sir Alex than Jose Mourinho."
