"Mourinho required a lot from the players", Mkhitaryan told SFR Sport on Friday (9 February). A lot, he was very hard.
Arsene Wenger, at his peak, was a meticulous team-builder, carefully constructing sides with a top player in every position, each one chosen to get the most out of his teammates, every man crucial to the boss's holistic vision.
In reference to Carzola's possible retirement, Wenger said; "I hope not, he's on the UEFA List".

And now the midfielder is looking forward to life at Arsenal under a style of play more suited to his ability.
"So it was just a dream, it was a drive to say 'why not?" Because I was 29 years old, I wanted to play more, because I know that in a few years time I'll be able to end my football career, and it's very important for me to make my name bigger.
The Gabon global moved to the club from Borussia Dortmund last month, and marked his impressive debut with a goal, and will be looking to add to that tally against North London rivals Tottenham this afternoon.
Arsenal star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has opened up on the key difference that he has noticed between new boss Arsene Wenger, and former manager Jose Mourinho, since making the move to North London. "In the first half, we were waiting for something to happen".
"In the second half, at the end they were exhausted, they weren't pressing as much and we were creating a bit more space so we had chances".
