Antonio Conte doesn’t like Jose Mourinho, claims Chelsea man
Asmir Begovic lifts the lid on how Antonio Conte feels about Jose Mourinho at Manchester United
Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho do not like each other, according to Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
The pair clashed on the touchline during Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals last week at Stamford Bridge.
Conte was upset about the number of fouls Manchester United’s players were committing during the first half of the game and the pair had an angry confrontation on the touchline in west London.
Begovic was on the bench for the game and admitted that he found both managers’ behaviour amusing.
Begovic is quoted as saying by Metro: “The two managers going at it, yelling at each other, it was a very intense match.
“It was really unnecessary, but it was so funny, because I was trying so hard not to laugh. Every time the camera was on them, we were thinking ‘keep a straight face, keep a straight face, don’t laugh at these guys’
“It wasn’t unprofessional, but I thought it was a little bit too much.
“They were really into it, it was a big deal and I don’t think they like each other very much.”
