Arsene Wenger talks about showing respect to rivals

Arsene Wenger feels Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho does not give his opponents the respect they deserve. The duo have a history of criticizing one another, and their most recent war of words started after the 0-0 draw at the Emirates where the home fans started chanting "boring, boring Chelsea". 

Mourinho who labelled the Frenchman a “specialist in failure” last year, responded to the chants in an interview where he told the reporters: "You know, I think boring is 10 years without a title. That's very boring." 

Wenger, who was seen getting physical with Mourinho in the match against Chelsea in the first half of the season, felt it was important to acknowledge the opposition and show them respect. 

"The biggest thing of managers is to respect each other and some people have to improve on that," said the 65-year old. 

"Everybody lives with his own internal problems and I live with mine. That's enough.

"You can have incidents with other managers at times. It can get a bit heated when you fight directly with them at times. In the end, I believe time heals and what is the most important is to respect each other as much as you can."
