Mourinho is a little man, says Conte

Mourinho is a little man, says Conte

Feeling that was a dig at him, Conte, the Chelsea manager, responded aggressively Friday by suggesting Mourinho was suffering from dementia because of the Portuguese's behavior earlier in his coaching career.

"Because I don't behave as a clown on the touchline, it means that I lost my passion", said Mourinho.

"I consider him a little man, I consider him a man with a very low profile", Conte added.

"That passion, you see it every day".

On Friday, speaking before United's win over Derby, Conte said: "There is a person that continues to look here - you understand?"

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

"I think we've got to give ourselves a pat on the back, to be honest, we showed great resilience".

"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".

The fact that Erodgan came to Paris to meet with Macron showed the growing influence of France. Ankara also considers YPG to be a terrorist organization, but the U.S. and EU do not.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte escalated his feud with Jose Mourinho by calling his Manchester United counterpart a "little man" and "fake". But I don't blame him at all.

"I prefer to have players very happy to stay here than to have players that are unhappy because when you are unhappy you transfer this to the other players, to me and to my staff and I don't like this. I don't have anything to clarify", Conte told reporters.

Chelsea manager further continued his rant saying, "You (Jose Mourniho) show you are a little man".

"I remember when he offended Claudio Ranieri for his English".

"Don't forget, in the last few games (with Arsenal) we finished the game with 10 men, when they won the FA Cup, the Community Shield".

'Then after two years you try to help this person because maybe it's good for you, your profile.

Conte was enraged by Mourinho's reference to a four-month suspension that the Italian served in the 2012/13 season for failing to report match-fixing at previous club Siena. "Match-fixing?I am innocent and the justice said that I was innocent.". When you become to be older, there is this type of risk. Honestly, I don't blame him. Everybody knows, I don't need the Chelsea manager to say I made mistakes in the past.
