Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has publicly apologised for shoving Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho when the two sides met at Stamford Bridge on October 5th.

After the game, Wenger had said in his media interview that he did not regret his actions after he entered Mourinho’s technical area and shoved the Portuguese manager in the chest. Wenger was outraged after Chelsea’s Gary Cahill hacked down Alexis Sanchez right in-front of the dug-outs, sparking the two managers to outburst in rage.

However, looking back on the incident, Wenger has openly apologised to Mourinho for his actions a fortnight ago. Speaking to BBC Sport, Wenger said, ”

“Too much importance was given to this story but I should not have reacted like this. I always regret any signs of violence and I apologise for it.”

It seems Wenger was happy to back down from his stubborn claims, but will this just stir their fiery relationship when they meet again?
