- Antonio Conte has taken a swipe at Jose Mourinho
- The Chelsea manager accused Mourinho of being obsessed with Chelsea
- Mourinho had earlier accused Conte of moaning about injuries
Chelsea gaffer Antonio Conte has slammed Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and accused him of being obsessed with Chelsea.
The 54-year-old Italian reacted angrily after hearing Mourinho appeared to accuse him of “crying” over injuries and lack of squad depth.
Conte said: “If he is speaking about me, I think he has to think about his team and start looking at himself, not others.”
The Chelsea manager gave this reaction after his side's 3-3 draw against Italian side AS Roma, Conte was not happy with his team giving up a two goals lead against the Italians.
After United's 1-0 win at Benfica, Mourinho took a dig over managers that moan about injuries, “I never speak about injuries,” Mourinho said.
He added: “Other managers, they cry, they cry, they cry when a player is injured, I can cry for the next five minutes if you like. We don’t have Zlatan, Pogba, Fellaini, Marcos Rojo.
“I can cry, but I don’t, so we do it with what we have. We went to Liverpool with two midfield players and nothing else.
“We brought the kid on today, Scott McTominay, because I had no other solution.
“We’ve played 12 matches - 10 victories, two draws, nine clean sheets. We’re not bad.”
There has been a bit of bad blood between Mourinho and Conte since the Italian replaced the Portuguese at the helm of affairs at Stamford Bridge last season.
When United and Chelsea met at Stamford Bridge last season, Jose Mourinho accused the Chelsea manager of being "disrespectful", both men clash again on November 5 when United visits Chelsea.
