Conte: ‘Won’t forget Mourinho words’

Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte warns “I won’t forget” Jose Mourinho’s jibe about his ban for failure to report match fixing, according to footballitalia.

A war of words exploded between the pair last week, with the former Italy CT claiming the ex Inter Coach had “senile dementia”.

Mourinho then hit back, saying “yes, I made mistakes in the past, yes I will make less but I think I will still make a few… what never happened to me, and what will never happen, is to be suspended for match fixing”.

Conte responded by saying the Portuguese was “a little, little man” and he was asked in today’s Press conference if he regretted what had gone on.

“I have this look, [is this the look of] a person that regrets?” the Blues boss asked.

“I don’t think so. I think we both said things and we’ll see what happens in the future.

“I think it’s not important. I think that he said serious words, he used serious words and I… I won’t forget this.

“This is not a problem for the clubs. It’s a problem between me and him.”

Conte was given a four-match ban in 2012 for failing to report match fixing when he was in charge of Siena.
