Antonio Conte has insisted that his dispute with Jose Mourinho is personal, whilst stating that he wouldn’t forget the comments that were made by the Man United boss.
The two managers have been at loggerheads since the beginning of last season and have carried on this season with personal attacks on each other’s personality now entering the fray.
Conte recently branded the Portuguese a little man but insisted that the two of them had not fallen out, and therefore need no intervention from the League Managers Association (LMA)
He said: “I think it’s not important, the association, you understand. It’s not important.
“He said serious words, he has used serious words.
“And I won’t forget this.
“This is not a problem for the club; it’s a problem between me and him. Now I stop. Stop.”
Mourinho appeared to escalate the feud by bringing up Conte’s involvement in match-fixing during his time in Italy. The Italian was handed a four-month suspension for failing to report match-fixing when he was the manager at Siena.
Conte further insisted that he had no regrets over the comments he has made in the course of the war of words between the two
“Do I have the look of a person with regret? I don’t think so,” said Conte.
“I think we both said things, and we’ll see what happens in future.”
