Jose Mourinho Escalates Feud With Antonio Conte With 'Match Fixing' Jibe

It's hardly a secret that Conte and the man who of course was seen as a Chelsea legend by many fans - and by some still is - do not see eye to eye, and it seems that Conte can not help but take the bait where Mourinho is concerned.

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

Mourinho responded: "I don't blame him".

The Italian was even interpreted as suggesting that the United manager may be suffering from "dementia" after Mourinho had made a reference, 24 hours earlier, to his own behaviour and the fact that he no longer acts "like a clown".


"Probably the journalist wanted to say that but didn't have the courage so he said "Mourinho said you behaved like 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.

THE level of animosity between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte has reached the next level with a bitter war of words during the FA Cup weekend.

The Blues' boss further added: "When you forgot what you say in the past, your behaviours, and when you totally forgot, you must be anxious as it means you are becoming old and you need a check. I was speaking about myself, saying I don't need to behave like a clown to show passion". 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.


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.

Speaking after his side's 2-0 FA Cup third-round win over Derby, Mourinho said the "clown" comments were not directed at Conte. I think that is a form of respect you must have and, I repeat, sometimes, for example, Wenger forgets that in our last few games [against Arsenal], we finish the game with 10 men. "So wrong question and obviously a strong answer and I don't blame".

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

Conte has clashed with the Chelsea hierarchy over the club's transfer policy, and the 48-year-old was unhappy with their recruitment in the summer.
