Reports: Jose Mourinho Takes A Dig At Arsene Wenger's Alexandre Lacazette Signing

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 11, 2017 08:59 AM @KeeganKruger

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly taken a dig at Arsene Wenger’s decision to sign France striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Zlatan To Make Man Utd Comeback?

The 26-year-old forward joined the Gunners from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon for a club record fee worth £52 million (R901 million) last week.

A source close to Mourinho and the Red Devils told the media that the former Chelsea boss spent six months scouting the forward, but decided to drop interest in him for a number of reasons.

“Lacazette was followed because he was top scorer in French football – but a lot of his goals were penalties (10 of his 27 goals last season came from the spot),” the source said, according to the Daily Express.

“In the end, he wasn’t considered because he has no stamina, no physical impact and isn’t a big game player.”

The France international made 275 appearances for his former club and scored 129 goals, assisting in 43 more in all competitions.

I watched this Lecazette boy a lot...the boy is a goal poacher...the boy is a proven goal scorer jealous down.Arsenal have made a very good signing no matter who says what.?.Who can forget that.De Bryune,Mata and even Lukaku were once declared Suplus to requirements by the same Mourinho.

What about Cristiano Ronald who's most goals come from penalties and easy tap-ins he stop being a hypocrite. Why see the need to say that now his timing is questionable

Mourinho is always obsessed with Arsene Wenger. Arsene is top class coach who knows how to shape and develop players. He developed Thierry Henry from Monaco to top international player. Jose is special failure unable to enrich players to next level he always looking for stars. Arsene Wenger is long term manager Jose is short term manager. In other words one is far sighted other is short sighted.
