Arsene Wenger has apologised for pushing Mourinho but not to the man himself. He initially said he had no regrets and that Mourinho provoked him but speaking to French TV show Telefoot he told them:
“They gave too much importance to this story. In hindsight I think I should not have reacted at all, it’s not a way to behave on a football field.
“I always regret any signs of violence and I apologise, but that’s a part of games where everything is manic. And then we have quite a substantial past. Did Mourinho provoke me? That is how I felt. I did not enter Chelsea’s technical area.”
Wneger and Mourinho clashed during the London Derby a couple of weeks back prompting the pitchside behaviour to come into question. For Arsenal fans though I think most were relieved to see that Wenger still had that passionate side to him and it was humorous to watch and lacked any real violence.
