We're not playing against Jose Mourinho,we're playing Man United says Wenger



Arsene Wenger has claimed that the focus should be on the teams rather than the managers ahead of Saturday's Premier League showdown against Manchester United.

The Frenchman has a tense relationship with his counterpart following numerous spats during Mourinho's time in charge of Chelsea.

The pair almost came to blows on the touchline during the 2014-15 season, but Wenger has no intention of stoking the fire now that Mourinho is in charge of the Red Devils.

"I don't think I have to describe our relationship," the 67-year-old told reporters in Thursday's press conference. "He fights for his team, I fight for mine.

"You do not play against a manager, you play against a team - that's the important thing."

Arsenal currently sit fourth in the Premier League table, six points above United after 11 games.
