Recently Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho decided to take an unnecessary dig at Antonio Conte by referring to his match-fixing allegations. And now the Chelsea boss has finally decided to respond.
After Chelsea’s draw against Norwich City, Conte was asked what he thought about Jose Mourinho questioning his integrity to which the Italian said,
“When there are these types of comments, you have to know very well the truth. Because the truth is that I was banned for four months for a failure to report. You understand? Then I asked for a retrial by court and then they cleared my innocence.
“I think that before you make this type of comment, you must pay great attention. And if you don’t, you show that you are a little man. You don’t know very well what is the situation.
“I know [Jose] very well in the past. In the past he was a little man in many circumstances. He’s a little man in the present and for sure he’ll be a little man in the future. For sure, if he wants to try to change his behavior, but right now Mourinho is this. You know him very well. The label is very low.
“I repeat, before you speak, you have to know very well what happened.
“Yesterday, you said that if someone wants to fight you, you will fight. Is this going to continue between Mourinho and you?
“This is not my problem, you understand. I consider him a little man. I consider him a man with a very low profile, you understand. But there is a story I speak for me and for him. But you can change the story; you have to know the story very well. In the last period, he’s having a bit of amnesia.”
