Cape Town - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has played down his spat with Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger following Sunday's feisty Premier League encounter.

The two men have endured a fiery, if not entertaining, relationship down the years, and things reached boiling point at Stamford Bridge this weekend when they became involved in a shoving match on the touchline.

Wenger has already stated he has "no regrets" over pushing his Portuguese counterpart, who himself laid hands on the Frenchman, but Mourinho looked to pour cold water on the entire incident, which flared up following Gary Cahill's rash challenge on Alexis Sanchez.

Mourinho, whose side won the encounter 2-0, told Sky Sports: "For me, it is over. But the technical area is very clear - I have mine, he has his and he cannot come to mine, especially to put pressure on the referee to give a red card to my player.

"So I just told him 'leave my technical area and don't come back please'."

When asked if he was perturbed that Wenger had put his hands on him, Mourinho said: "No, it is no problem."
