Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hits back at Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for his remark that the former is ‘the king’ after he won an appeal against Gabriel’s dismissal.
Reacting to this, The Mirror quoted Wenger, as saying that he was doing his job, adding that he just wanted his team to perform well.
After Wenger’s appeal to FA, Chelsea striker Diego Costa was handed a three- match ban for ‘violent conduct’ against Arsenal centre-back Laurent Koscielny during their Premier League clash.
The Spanish international was caught striking Koscielny with his hand twice before involving in an altercation with Arsenal’s defender Gabriel .
Subsequently, both Arsenal players were given marching orders that left Arsene Wenger’s side being reduced to nine men in their 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge. But that decision was overturned after the truth was caught on video.
Arsenal will now play against Manchester United, who are currently at the top spot in Premier League table, on October 4 at Emirates Stadium.
