Arsene Wenger has come out and defended Jose Mourinho 

Manchester United are currently seventh in the Premier League and nine points behind their neighbours and league leaders Manchester City.

They have won three of their last four games, but Mourinho remains under pressure at Old Trafford.

The Portguese has publicly criticised Wenger several times in the past. Most notably Mourinho labelled the Frenchman a ‘specialist in failure’ in 2014.

However, the Arsenal legend has shown his class once again and passed up an opportunity to take a swipe at his former Premier League rival.

He told BeIN Sports (via The Metro): ‘For me this is a very sensitive subject.

Arsene Wenger has backed Jose Mourinho

‘It looks to me that against Everton and Bournemouth he turned his team on the right side in terms of the performance.

‘His team was down and responded twice in a very positive way. Overall you can trust his quality and experience to get Manchester back on track.

‘They have an important game tonight [away at Juventus in the Champions League] to show that.’

Gooners, Manchester United appear to be back on track? Do you think they will be a threat this season? Let us know in the comments…
