  • Antonio Conte takes feud with Jose Mourinho to another level calls him a little man

Chelsea reportedly want Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simone to replace Antonio Conte if the Italian leaves at the end of the season.

Antonio Conte has hit back at Jose Mourinho's criticism of other managers' touchline antics, saying the Man Utd boss has forgotten his own past behaviour. What never happened to me and will never happen is to be suspended for match-fixing.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea are now third in the EPL standings as they are one point behind José Mourinho's Manchester United.

Mourinho's passion was questioned by reporters in his news conference on Thursday, leading to the Portuguese to claim he prefers to act in a "mature" manner, rather than "crazy" or like "a clown" on the touchline. Probably the journalist wanted to say that but didn't have the courage, so he said 'Mourinho said you behaved like a clown'.

Conte had reacted angrily this week to Mourinho's assertion that he did not need to act like a "clown" in his technical area, saying: "I think he has to see himself in the past - maybe he was speaking about himself in the past".

Asked to clarify his comments because Conte has served a ban for match fixing in the past, Mourinho replied: "Did he?"

The Blues' boss further added: "When you forgot what you say in the past, your behaviours, and when you totally forgot, you must be anxious as it means you are becoming old and you need a check. Maybe, sometimes, I think that someone forgets what's said in the past, which is his behaviour", Conte said. Press should apologize to me and him.

One huge boost for Chelsea, and something that will keep Conte happy is the fact the club have landed Ross Barkley, who they of course tried to land in the summer and failed on deadline day, with conflicting reports over what had happened there. I'm not free of that, especially if we score a winning goal in a specific moment I am not free to have an out-of-control reaction.

"I don't need the Chelsea manager to say I made mistakes in past and will in the future".

Nonetheless, the United boss appears unshakeable, as he hauled up the ban handed to the Italian gaffer for not reporting match-rigging allegations whilst he was reigning Siena in 2011.

Or a similar incident while Mourinho was in charge of Chelsea, when the London club scored late to eliminate Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League in 2014.
