Jose Mourinho hits back at Chelsea manager Antonio Conte with fixing jibe

12 January 2018

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson also had his fair share of scuffles with Premier League rival managers and it's no surprise to see Jose Mourinho take on Antonio Conte.

"You show you are a little man", Conte said after a weakened Chelsea side were held 0-0 by Norwich City in Saturday's FA Cup third round.

The most interesting information was about Antonio Conte, who despite having relationship problems with David Luiz, would have told the player that he's staying because he's needed for the rest of the season.

Simmering tensions between Conte and his predecessor as Chelsea boss ignited on Friday, when Mourinho made reference to match-fixing allegations. Everybody knows, I don't need the Chelsea manager to say I made mistakes in the past. I was speaking about myself, and then the question to the Chelsea manager was like I said that he behaves like a clown.

He pointed out there were no reasons to keep secret or understate the number of drones that attacked Russian military facilities in Syria .

"I know that I celebrate goals running 50 metres, I celebrate goals sliding on my knees, I got celebrations jumping into the crowd".

Conte had been accused of failing to report his knowledge of an incident of attempted match-fixing during his time as Siena boss in 2011 and he duly served a four-month touchline ban in 2012. What has never happened to me and will never happen is to be suspended for match-fixing. But I don't blame him at all. I'm not free of that, especially if we score a winning goal in a specific moment, I am not free to have an out-of-control reaction.

"What has never happened to me and will never happen is to be suspended for match-fixing", he added.

Conte also said there will be an opportunity for "answers" at Old Trafford when he and Mourinho meet face to face.

TyC Sports , as quoted by Metro , is reporting that Arsene Wenger is ready to push through a deal to sign the 21-year-old in the January transfer window.

"If I saw a well-organised team normally when I spoke about another coach it is only to make compliments, otherwise I stay silent, but in this situation you must have respect and I think I do this".

Asked about Mourinho's comments on Friday, Conte used the Italian phrase "demenza senile" in relation to the Portuguese, which translates as senile dementia.

"For this reason, if you want to fight with me, I am ready".
