The Chelsea boss had insisted that the Frenchman should “get a calculator” when looking at his side’s signings over the last few years but the Arsenal manager refused to bite back
Arsene Wenger has responded to Jose Mourinho‘s assertion that the Arsenal boss should “get a calculator” insisting that he gets “different reproaches” to his spending habits and that he’ll let other people do the talking.
Mourinho again called into question his rival’s transfer dealings with his latest barb on Monday, claiming that the Gunners should be challenging for the title given their investment in playing staff over the last few seasons.
And when asked his response to Mourinho’s jibe, Wenger refused to bite back at the Blues boss, suggesting that his spending has been justified by the way his players have developed at the Emirates Stadium.
He told reporters: “One day you will look at the players we have developed here compared to the spending of other clubs and you will be surprised.
“I get different reproaches – that I don’t spend enough then I spend too much.
“I let other people talk.”
Wenger was also asked about his pursuit of Eden Hazard before the Chelsea winger joined the Premier League champions from Lille and insists that he was “a few millions” short of being able to take the Belgian to Arsenal.
