Mourinho losing his memory, claims Conte

Jose Mourinho

GETTYJose Mourinho brought up the match-fixing scandal when talking about Antonio Conte

Mourinho has also attacked Paul Scholes.

The Chelsea manager has been involved in back-and-forth verbal sparring with Mourinho, after it was suggested the Portuguese had aimed a dig at Conte when he said he prefers to act in a "mature" manner on the touchline, rather than "crazy" or like a "clown".

Antonio Conte has warned Jose Mourinho and any other manager that takes exception to his methods that he is ready to fight for himself and Chelsea, stating his improving grasp of English will only help his cause. I consider him a little man, a man with very low profile.

"We knew it was going to be tough and when the team sheet comes in and you see the likes of Willian, Pedro and world-class players like that you know it's going to be a tough afternoon, but we dug in and got the replay".

"I think you have good consideration for a person or not". Maybe, sometimes, I think that someone forgets what's said in the past, which is his behaviour.

Antonio Conte went on to explain the match-fixing case, he said, "Before (making these comments) you have to know the truth very well".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte suggested Jose Mourinho could be suffering from amnesia after the Manchester United boss launched a barb at the Italian over his touchline behaviour.

"I think the press should apologise to me and to him because the question that comes to him is completely wrong and because of that he had that out-of-control reaction". Me and him face to face. "For sure there is a good opportunity when we play Manchester United to clarify in a room, me and him in a room".

"I remember a stupid example with Ranieri", he said.

The former Inter Coach hit back again last night, noting he "will never be suspended for match-fixing".

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

The Chelsea boss was suspended for four months for failing to report match-fixing during his time at Siena, but was later cleared of wrongdoing by a court in 2016. When you become to be older, there is this type of risk. Me and him face to face. Everybody knows, I don't need the Chelsea manager to say I made mistakes in the past.

"It's not Scholes' fault either, it's just the way football is". "Where's the Paul Pogba we saw at Juventus? ". No one in England should be getting near him, but he is being asked to do a role he is not comfortable in.
