Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he was “happy” Arsenal fans could finally celebrate beating one of his sides as the Gunners kept alive their top-four hopes with a 2-0 win.
The win was manager Arsene Wenger’s first in 16 competitive meetings against Mourinho.
“I left Highbury and they were crying, I left Emirates and they were crying,” Mourinho said of past games at Arsenal.
“Finally today they sing, they swing the scarves. It’s nice for them.”
“It is the first time I leave and they are happy. Before they were walking the streets with their heads low.
“The Arsenal fans are happy and I am happy for them.”
Arsenal beat Man Utd but nobody really cares
Wenger’s only previous win against Mourinho came in the 2015 Community Shield when the Portuguese was in his second spell at Chelsea.
The managers first met in December 2004 – when the Gunners were still playing at their former ground – Highbury- in a 2-2 draw.
“To have that record of winning so many matches is not normal. Normal is win, lose, draw,” Mourinho said.
“Do you think I enjoy the fact a big club like Arsenal is not winning trophies? I am not enjoying that. It’s a big club.
“Wenger is not a small manager. He is a big manager. So it’s not normal and I really don’t care about it.”
