José Mourinho has hit back at Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as the pairs ongoing feud continues to escalate.
Manchester United’s manager has suggested recently that other managers act like clowns on the touch line, a claim many felt was aimed at the coach of his former club Chelsea.
When quizzed about these comments Conte stated that Mourinho must have ‘’senile dementia,’’ if he has forgotten how he has acted on the sidelines during his career.
Then of course after United 2-0 FA Cup victory over Derby last night it was the Portuguese coaches turn to strike back when he said:
“The only thing I want to say to end the story is that yes, I made mistakes in the past on the touchline. Yes, I will make less but I think I will still make a few.
“What never happened to me – and will never happen – is to be suspended for match-fixing. That never happened to me and will never happen.”
Mourinho is of course referring to his counterparts role in a match fixing scandal in his native Italy.
Chelsea play away to Norwich tonight and Conte will undoubtedly be given another chance to hit back.
The bad blood between the pair of world class coaches shows no sign of dissipating, and let’s be honest these kind of managerial spats are great fun.
Get the popcorn out lads, this one is going to run and run.
