Mourinho reveals Wenger dossier
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed he has a 120-page dossier on Arsene Wenger's comments about his club as the two continued their war of words.

Mourinho made the claim after Arsenal manager Wenger hit out at his rival's comments labelling him a "voyeur".

"When you give success to stupid people, it makes them more stupid sometimes and not more intelligent," said Wenger in response.

Mourinho says he will not stop his comments until Wenger does the same.

The Stamford Bridge boss said: "We have a file of quotes from Mr Wenger about Chelsea in the last 12 months - it is not a file of five pages.

I don't know if he wants my job - he loves Chelsea

"It is a file of 120 pages, so we have a very strong reaction.

"My objective is that it is enough. He has talked enough about us.

"He has said some very strange things about Chelsea football club. We have a very strong answer.

"I accept his next answer being strong but it is time to stop because if he doesn't stop, we are there for the fight."

Arsenal and Chelsea were at loggerheads last season over an illegal approach from the Blues for the Highbury club's defender Ashley Cole.

This season also started with Mourinho fiercely questioning Arsenal chairman David Dein's role on the Football Association board.

Mourinho stoked the fire with his "voyeur" comments which an angered Wenger threatened to take some action against.

"I find it out of order, disconnected with reality and disrespectful," said the Frenchman.

"I will see if I take any action. I don't know yet but I will leave that door open. I don't know what I said that was malicious.

"I was asked a question about Chelsea and gave my honest answer, just like I expect any other manager to do when he is asked about Arsenal."
