Mourinho dismisses the chance to apologise to Wenger

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has declined the opportunity to apologise to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after calling the manager a "specialist in failure". 

In a interview in February the comment was made by Mourinho as a response to an initial interview with the Frenchman regarding last season's Premier League title race. 

"It was a consequence of something," Mourinho said of his taunt. "It was not a deliberate first option to say something. I didn't get an apology. I don't apologise."

Mourinho wants to leave the comment in the past.

"You don't need to apologise," added Mourinho, who last season did say sorry for callingWenger a "voyeur" during his first spell.

"To go over it, to forget it and to move forward without thinking about what happened. We don't need that, finish, move and let's go for another match with big responsibility for both of us."
