Jose Mourinho Mocks Arsene Wenger For Signing Alexandre Lacazette


Jose Mourinho has mocked Arsene Wenger’s decision to sign striker Alexandre Lacazette with the Manchester United manager saying the striker has “no stamina, no physical impact and is not a big-game player.”

The United manager, had spent six months scouting the France international with a view to taking him to Old Trafford – but decided the player was not lethal enough in front of goal and chose to sign Romelu Lukaku instead.

A United source said:

“Lacazette was followed because he was top scorer in French football – but a lot of his goals were penalties [10 of his 28 goals last season came from the spot].

“In the end he wasn’t considered because he has no stamina, no physical impact and isn’t a big-game player.”

Mourinho drew up a list of strikers to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, options that included Everton’s Lukaku, Real Madrid hitman Alvaro Morata and Torino frontman Andrea Belotti.
