However, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss believes the fact he departs clubs when they are at the top shows his long-term effects on clubs, unlike Wenger who has overseen Arsenal for 20 years, only for the club to seemingly be falling from grace.

The Chile global was on the verge of a move to Man City before the Gunners put a stop to the transfer.

SunSport columnist Ian Wright laughed off the German's rant and demanded he: "Stop hiding behind Alexis Sanchez and sign a new deal".

Both managers have had a number of clashes over the years, with Mourinho constantly critical of Wenger's recent years at Arsenal, often appearing to criticize the Frenchman's lack of success at the Emirates over the last few years.

"It's hard to set a time [when he will return to first team action]".

Spending a club-record £52 million ($68 million, 57 million euros) on Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette indicated Wenger was intent on maximising his opportunity.

Should Arsenal fans not actually be happy that Ozil has just enjoyed two good games and will probably come back to north London feeling a lot better than he did when he left?

Thierry Henry, Emmanuel Petit and Martin Keown are among the Arsenal greats to question his performances this season.

ARSENE WENGER has jumped to Mesut Ozil's defence after Gunners legends opened fire on the midfielder.

"But since the start of July, every day I look at the newspapers, and nothing has happened". But he has not played for over a year now. "He is no longer the man for the job". Is it to lose a game?

"It was awful, it was uncomfortable, you don't want to see that".
