LONDON: Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger has said his Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho lacks respect for fellow managers.

Arsenal fans had kept on chanting “boring Chelsea” during their last weekend’s 0-0 stalemate at the Emirates Stadium. Mourinho had hit back saying the Gunners’ 11-year trophy drought was “boring”, reports BBC.

"The biggest thing for a manager is to respect other managers. Some people have to improve on that," said Wenger.

In February 2014, Mourinho had called his opposite number a "specialist in failure", and then in October the Arsenal manager shoved his rival during a heated touchline argument.

"You can have incidents with other managers sometimes. It gets a bit heated when you fight directly with them but in the end, I believe time heals and the important thing is to respect each other as much as you can," added Wenger.
