Jose Mourinho believes Premier League will not see another Arsene Wenger
Jose Mourinho says he does not think it’s possible for a different manager to direct a Premier League club for 2 decades and believes Arsene Wenger was the last of the kind.
Wenger is the director in Arsenal’s history and won 17 decorations throughout his 22-year tenure.
Mourinho, by comparison, has taken charge of nine clubs and substituted Mauricio Pochettino as head coach of Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham.
Asked whether long-term supervisors such as Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson are now a thing of the past, Mourinho said:”Twenty years in a club? I don’t think it is possible.
“Modern lifestyle, new technologies, social networking – I think everything has an influence.
“Even people’s mindset, quicker relations, getting tired more easily, so lots of things which are changing. Not just football, but altering the world and the perception of items.
“I think Wenger was the last one”
Mourinho considers in the game that is modern day signifies Premier League bosses now are always under pressure to deliver, the level of examination supervisors confront.
“We must accommodate and we must attempt to prove we are the man for the task. We must struggle for our job daily,” he explained.
“I think that the times when people know the job will be mine for X [are over] – you need to struggle daily, not just with soccer results but what you do in the club and I think it’s normal.
“It occurs in society and in so many areas – I will envision yourself, even in your newspaper and your radio, you have not just to sleep on what you mentioned before, you need to reveal every day you’re the guy for the job”
Asked if managers now have a time limitation for success, Mourinho said:”I don’t think about that. I think about trying to show I am the guy for the job daily.”
