Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger are set to shove their rivalry aside and go face to face in a TV studio.


The former Premier League managers will be pundits on beIN SPORTS for the Champions League final on June 1.

Mourinho and Wenger having managed Chelsea and Arsenal were involved in a fierce London rivalry down the years with the Portuguese once calling Wenger ‘a specialist in failure’.

Both gaffers were once involved in a spat on the sidelines during a clash between the Gunners and the Blues at Stamford Bridge in 2014.

According to the Daily Mail, this will be the first time the two managerial giants have shared the same studio and viewers will be eagerly waiting to see what happens.

Both coaches have been on beIN SPORTS’ coverage throughout the season reporting on Europe’s biggest competition.

Now they will have their say over two teams they know very well in Liverpool and Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Mourinho won the Champions League with Porto in 2004 and with Inter Milan in 2010 but Wenger never managed to win the competition coming closest in 2006 when the Gunners lost to Barcelona in the final.
