Wenger, Mourinho bury the hatchet

I want to go peacefully with Mourinho as well because he's a great manager, ' said Wenger.

It even got physical at Stamford Bridge four years ago when Wenger shoved Mourinho, but the Portuguese delivered an unexpectedly warm tribute following the news that Wenger was leaving Arsenal. He is a very intense man and I think he will probably feel the same contempt for Mourinho as a person that we all feel.

Wenger also said that he was approached by numerous clubs in the past but he stayed loyal to Arsenal.

"It is very hard to keep it calm and quiet, but over the distance the respect always takes over".

"You always have respect for people who suffer, unless you are completely not human at all".

Likewise, Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger have had their own history of fall-outs and bust-ups over the years, but this is a fixture that certainly needs no extra spice or tension.

Granted, the Gunners had three games in hand over the Red Devils, but such was the brilliance of Ferguson's side, that United contested the rest of the season unbeaten after losing to Arsenal, while for Wenger's men, they would go on a run of eight consecutive victories after their famous Old Trafford triumph.

"In the build-up to a game and after a game everything was absolutely tense".

"The rivalry between Alex Ferguson and myself was at a very high point and it was always very tense".

The romantics would possibly have Arsenal win and have the curtain fall on what has been a labour of love - and indeed much woe in recent years - for Wenger in Manchester for over 20 years.

"I honestly don't know what I will do".

"I had to go in the stand and after that they changed, a little bit, the rules, because nobody could tell me where I could sit down".

Many matches between Ferguson's United and Wenger's Arsenal became iconic, and the rivalry arguably reached a peak during the mid-2000s when the two clubs consistently fought it out for supremacy in the Premier League.

"I don't regret that because I see my life and what is important to me", he said on Friday.
