Wenger Taunts Mourinho Over FFP Comments

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taunted Jose Mourinho over his recent Financial Fair Play comments.

The Portuguese had fired comments towards Manchester City’s signing of Wilfried Bony, despite being punished by FFP last season.

Wenger, however, feels Mourinho is not the right man to criticise FFP rules, after his club’s “financial doping”, and the spending of £75 million on Fernando Torres and David Luiz in January 2011.

“I think we have a good sense of humour here,” Wenger said, laughing off Mourinho’s in a press conference.

“Look, the Financial Fair Play rules have to be respected by everybody and if one club respected always the Financial Fair Play, and you can underline always, it’s Arsenal, then we do not have to talk about that.

“The Premier League rules and European rules are different already. You have to be aligned, so everybody knows exactly what it means.

“We are a popular sport. So you want clear and simple rules for everybody to understand.

“If I ask 10 people in the street today and if you ask me, and I am in the job, I don’t have a clear idea anymore of what it means. I would like the rules to be clear and that everybody respects them.”

Despite Wenger’s comments, Chelsea have done well to balance their books by selling players to fund transfer for the likes of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas.
