Recently the Conte-Mourinho feud reached boiling point. Conte told he won’t forget Mourinho’s criticism and the feud is personal, so nobody should intervene.
Lately, Mourinho added a cocky comment that he is still passionate despite he isn’t acting “like a clown” on the touchline. Undoubtedly, he hinted on Conte behavior, which was taken as an insult.
Chelsea manager responded that Man United boss apparently has an amnesia with his own reputation and he probably mentioned about himself in that comment. Then the spat jumped to a new level when Jose told: “I do not need Chelsea manager for saying I’ve made mistakes and I will in future. However, I’ll say that I’ll never be banned for match-fixing”.
Remind, Conte got the four-month suspension while being at Juventus in the 2012-13 for failing to report match-fixing at his previous club Siena. However, he was justified in a court in 2016 of any wrongdoing.
The cherry on the pie was Conte’ offense snub. He repeatedly called Mourinho “a little man”. Also, Conte is still standing on his comments: “Do I look as a person who regrets? I don’t think so. We both said things and we’ll see what happens in the future. He [Mourinho] used serious words and I won’t forget this. This is only my problem, but not the club’. And now it’s time to Stop”.
Next Chelsea vs Man United clash will happen on Feb 25. Until then Conte’ side is facing Arsenal today, and Jose Mourinho squad will play against Stoke City on Jan 15
"When the target is to offend, to insult, I think that you are a little man"
"It's not a surprise for me"
"This is his way"

In the past month, Jose Mourinho has had a pop at Guardiola (with no response), Jurgen Klopp (for spending £75million on Van Dijk) and Antonio Conte for no apparent reason.
The man is becoming so boring, tedious and bitter. Most importantly, incredibly bitter.
