Cech explains main difference between Mourinho and Wenger

Date published: Thursday 7th September 2017 12:30

Petr Cech says Arsene Wenger is trying to emulate Jose Mourinho’s “win at all costs” mentality.

Cech has worked under both managers during his time in the Premier League.

The keeper joined Chelsea under Mourinho in 2004, playing 494 games and winning 15 trophies.

He then moved to Arsenal in 2015, where he has won three trophies in 83 games.

Discussing the key difference between the two coaches, Cech chose to concentrate on their different mentalities and styles.

“When he [Mourinho] arrived at Chelsea from Porto, he brought the main thing: he came from a club where it was not acceptable to him to finish second of the championship.

“He brought the same spirit in Chelsea. He thinks only about victory, whatever the price.

“He hates draws. If we returned to the dressing room with a draw, it was known that he would not be satisfied.

“On the other hand, he also wanted be able to keep a 1-0 or beat a team 5-0 if possible. No matter how, Mourinho wants the result.

“The philosophy at Arsenal is completely opposed to this.

“It is not win at all costs but we want to win with a good way of playing. This is beginning to change in our approach.”
