Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wishes that he had the stability that Arsene Wenger has at Arsenal.

The Frenchman has been at the Gunners for 16 years and in that time, the Portuguese boss has managed Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

“Yes I would love to have that stability at a club,” Mourinho told The Sun.

“But at the same time I think for my mentality I also need the pressure to succeed.

“And if no one imposes that pressure on me then I would impose that pressure on myself.

“The pressure to win things.

“Yes it’s possible to be one or two seasons building for the future and not being at the level to win things.

“But no longer, because my mentality is I always need the pressure of winning things.

“Maybe it could happen soon for Arsenal.

“They play good football and produce good players.

“And they’re always buying players in every transfer window so surely sooner or later they should do something, should win something.”
