Conte snaps at Mourinho 'clowns' jibe and takes aim at Wenger

Jose Mourinho Antonio Conte

On Friday, speaking before United's win over Derby, Conte reacted to Mourinho - who has managed Chelsea twice, winning three Premier League titles across two spells at Stamford Bridge.

"The only thing I want to say to Antonio Conte is that, yes, I made my mistakes in the past on the touchline".

It was an achievement made into an iconic image of Mourinho sprinting down the touchline at Old Trafford to celebrate with his players.

It's prompted Conte to call on Mourinho to remember his own history: "I think that he has to see himself in the past, maybe he was speaking about himself in the past, yeah?" Maybe sometimes, someone forgets what they said in the past, or [forgets] his behaviours.

Conte lapsed into his native Italian to explain himself - the phrase he used translates into English as senile dementia, although Chelsea insisted he meant to say amnesia. Instead, Hazard won a penalty from which he scored. "I guess Wenger forgets that in our last few meetings against Arsenal we always lost a man to a red card.".

"I don't blame the Chelsea manager at all and I understand his reaction". "It is very unusual", he replied.

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

"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. Wenger? When Arsene looks back at the game, he will realize that he was lucky with the refereeing decisions. Otherwise I stay silent but I repeat: In this situation, you must have respect and I think that I do this, but at the same time I am starting to be a bit annoyed because once, twice [it has happened].

"Wenger must to find this way [accepting decisions]; it's not good, it's not good".

"He [Wenger] has to accept the decisions".

"For the other situation, I am repeating - there is a person who continues to look here".

Couple that with Simeone's wish to manage, ironically, in Italy with Inter Milan once he leaves Spain's capital, and Chelsea may not stand too much of a chance of luring him to London.

Battling for second spot behind runaway league leaders Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are separated by just one point in the Premier League table.
