Mourinho mocks Arsenal boss Wenger: Your excuses are getting old now

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has launched a furious blast at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Mourinho taunted his rival over Arsenal's failure to win a trophy in the last five years.

Mourinho rapped: "He should especially explain to Arsenal supporters how he can't win one single little trophy since 2005."

The former Chelsea boss was retaliating after Wenger denounced Real's controversial time-wasting tactics at Ajax on Tuesday, which saw two of the Spanish giants' players conveniently sent off.

He also mocked the Gunners' 2-0 midweek Champions League defeat by Braga, which has left Arsenal in danger of crashing out, and slammed the Frenchman's claims his side is still mostly inexperienced.

Mourinho told The Sun: "Instead of speaking about Real Madrid, Mr Wenger should speak about Arsenal and explain how he lost 2-0 against a team in the Champions League for the first time.

"The history about the young kids is getting old now.

"Sagna, Clichy, Walcott, Fabregas, Song, Nasri, Van Persie, Arshavin are NOT kids. They are all top players."
