Mourinho Says Fabregas Didn’t Want Arsenal Move And Has A Go At Jack

By on July 19, 2014

Jose Mourinho has been talking bollocks again today after claiming Cesc Fabregas never wanted to return to Arsenal before making his move to Chelsea last month.

Fabregas asked to leave Barcelona this summer and we had a clause in his contract that meant we had the opportunity to re-sign him for a set price and must also be informed if any other club made an approach.

Surprisingly, Arsene Wenger turned down the chance to re-sign his former protege and Fabregas ended up moving to Stamford Bridge. Jose has now decided to speak out about the deal and claims that after a 20 minute conversation, Fabregas made it clear he wanted to join Chelsea and Mourinho claims he was never ‘open’ for a move to Arsenal.

“I spoke with him 20 minutes.”

“I think he really wanted to come to us.

“As you know Arsenal had an option to interfere. But I think he was not open for that, I think he was very much in our direction so it was an easy job for me.” source: Mirror

What utter rubbish. Maybe Jose should speak to Cesc before spouting such crap as the midfielder made it perfectly clear on several occasions his first choice was Arsenal and he held extensive talks with Arsene Wenger who explained he couldn’t find a place for him in his team.

The fact is, after we rejected him, he had little option but to choose Chelsea. Fabregas wanted to return to the Premier League and his girlfriend wanted to remain in London, so Mourinho’s side were basically the only move he could make.

Cesc hated Chelsea during his time at Arsenal and once said “you have permission to shoot me” if he ever played for them, and he despised Mourinho during his time in Spain when Jose was Madrid manager, so imagine how desperate he must have been to join Chelsea. You could see the pain in his eyes when he was unveilled.

Mourinho can say what he likes but he knows the truth and these comments are nothing more than pathetic mind-games from a man who’s desperately trying to live up to his ‘special one’ tag after a failed (trophyless) season last year.

His obsession with Arsenal continued as he then decided to have a pop at Jack Wilshere for smoking, basically saying he should be a better role model for kids:

“What football players do, millions and millions are watching, lots of kids are watching.

“I’m not a specialist obviously but I don’t think if a football player smokes one cigar or cigarette with friends in the summer when he is not training – I don’t think it affects his performance.

“What gets affected is that a kid at home says if a top football player can smoke then I can smoke and it is not a problem.

“It is more a social consequence than a physical consequence.

“Being angry is not a solution but I would just explain exactly that, that everything they do or wear is part of the kids’ life.

“If they smoke, maybe the kids think they do it a lot of times and they will probably do the same.”

Now I’m not saying I disagree with what Jose is saying here. Arsene said something very similar when Jack was caught smoking last year, but it’s basically none of Mourinho’s business.

When other managers have been asked about it in recent days, most said it’s up to Arsene to deal with or the more ‘old school’ managers have said there’s nothing wrong with Jack smoking, but Mourinho just has to have a pop.

Whatever anybody’s feelings are on the subject, it’s up to Wenger to deal with Wilshere and remind him about his responsibilities as a role model, not Mourinho. It’s none of his business. Ashley Cole has been caught smoking on numerous occasions over the years, did we hear Mourinho spouting off in the media about him every week?

If there is one team we simply have to beat this year, it’s Chelsea!

    Why would he have an obsession with a team that he slaughtered 6-0. I think the only obsessed one is you sir,with your bitter rant against Mourinho.

      Carl there is a saying which goes,If you keep looking looking at your neighbours roses,your own garden will over grow!!!! In basic terms for mourinho stop worrying what we are doing and concentrate on your ageing and tired team!!! For a good manager as yourself I thought you would have worked out that the reason cesc ain’t at arsenal next season is because A: we don’t want him!! B:we don’t need him!! C: He wouldn’t get in the team!! So your welcome to our sloppy seconds!!! You can have Bentner aswell if you want!! The special one!! More like the special MUG!! Who to be ah gooner!!!

      Haha that meaningless game was the only highlight of Chelsea’s season?? What’s the point of getting lucky and beating a top team 6 nil (when they were missing half their first team thru injuries and the ref had an awful game) to then lose to bottom of the table teams and finish empty handed after all the promise?? lol
      I and the rest of the gooners forgot about that game as soon as we WON the FA Cup! I guess as Chelsea didn’t win anything hahahahaha cause you’re sh*t and have crap players and an overrated disgusting manager!(after spending the most money, yet again! and getting the’special one’ back lol) then that 6 nil is the only thing chelsea glory supporting plastic fans and the most disgraceful manager on the planet have to obsess over!
      Mourinho only talks about Arsenal when he is scared of us!! He is scared that Arsenal can now match what he spends! He is scared as Arsenal have a awesome stadium paid off, a bigger fan base, remembered how to win things, were the best team in London last year and can now match his spending power (with our own money, which we earnt! didn’t need to cheat with russian oil money!!) and sign world class talent like Ozil and Sanchez! Without disrespecting other teams, having to cheat on the football pitch or idolise scumbags like John Terry!
      Anyone who believes anything that comes out of jose moanrinho’s mouth is a gullible idiot! Says even though he spent the most money, his team are a small team and shouldnt win anything! (actually i guess that is true!), then to say Cesc chose chelsea over Arsenal? hahaha yeah ok! I guess he didnt read cesc statement on the chelsea website saying how he had to choose chelsea as arsenal didnt want him! lol thats hilarious! why would any chelsea fan want a player who hates your club and mugs you off like that? lol he is only there for the monies! his career went downhill after Arsenal so i guess he wants to earn loadsa money then retire as a ‘nothing’ player… he won’t be a legend at any team he played for!
      Then for Jose to talk about Jack when everyone one of his ‘favourite’ players is an absolute scumbag! and some of the worst role models in the history of football!! ashley cole, john terry, drogba… lol hypocrite!!

    I guess Jose thinks reaching round and putting gouging your fingers in a another coaches eyes is the kind
    of example you should be setting for the innocent minds he speaks of.Former Fab 4 had Barca DNA, followed by organ rejection, now he’s being sold as a Chelsea convert, Christian Scientist next! Sad to kill your idols
    not if you were a punk.

    From your write up I can sense that you are bias. Mourinho just made polite statement concerning Wilshire, and beside, he has not suggested to Arsene what punishment should be given to Wilshire

      Point was its none of his business what players at another club do or dont do.
      how about in future instead of commenting on another clubs players he just says ” thats not my concern so l have no comment” as for role model did he pick up on Cashley sleeping around as a married man or JT shagging his mates missus or Roman being caught in a car behind Kings Cross station with a tart…., oh sorry that was David Pleat
