Jose Mourinho heightens feud with Antonio Conte with match-fix barb

Jose Mourinho heightens feud with Antonio Conte with match-fix barb

Man United will host Chelsea on February 25, in case you were, for any unknown reason, wondering when the next meeting between Mourinho and Conte would be.

"I don't like to speak about other coaches or players", Conte said.

Conte suggested that the Manchester United manager had forgotten some of his own past behaviour when it was put to him that Mourinho had suggested that he behaved like a clown on the touchline.

Asked if other managers' comments annoy him, Conte replied: "I must be honest - I don't read [any of it]".

"Probably the journalist wanted to say that but didn't have the courage to say that, so he said that Mourinho said that you behave as a clown".

In an astonishing scattergun attack, Conte implied that José Mourinho was going senile; called Arsène Wenger an "old coach" who needs to accept refereeing decisions with more grace; distanced himself emphatically from the signing of Ross Barkley and the pursuit of Andy Carroll; and declared himself "ready to fight" anyone who criticises him or his squad.

Jose Mourinho has responded to Antonio Conte's criticism by claiming his words were misinterpreted.

"Sometimes I think there is, I don't know the name, but demenza senile. when you forget what you do in the past". "So wrong question and obviously a strong answer and I don't blame". I was speaking about myself, saying I don't need to behave as a clown to show passion, that I control my emotions in a better way, everybody knows I don't need the Chelsea manager to say that I made mistakes in the past, and I will make in the future.

This appeared to be a reference to when Conte was implicated in a 2011 match fixing scandal involving his former club Siena - he was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing in the case.

There is no love lost between the pair and the Chelsea manager felt his patience snap after hearing comments from Mourinho on Thursday.

"I was asked about my passion and, you know, I was speaking about myself and then the question to the Chelsea manager was that I said he behaved like a clown", said Mourinho.

One huge boost for Chelsea, and something that will keep Conte happy is the fact the club have landed Ross Barkley, who they of course tried to land in the summer and failed on deadline day, with conflicting reports over what had happened there.
