Conte slams "senile" Mourinho after "clown" comments

Conte slams

After a relatively successful start to his United tenure last season, where they finished sixth in the league and won the Europa League and League Cup titles, Mourinho's side have been overshadowed by bitter rivals Manchester City this campaign.

"If I saw a well-organised team normally when I spoke about another coach it is only to make compliments, otherwise I stay silent, but in this situation you must have respect and I think I do this". When they won the FA Cup and Community Shield, I think the referee decisions were a bit unusual, you understand? Conte said. "Maybe sometimes I think that someone forget what they said in the past or which is his behaviours and sometimes I think there is, I don't know the name, demenza senile, when you are a bit [Conte taps his temple] when you forget what you do in the past".

When quizzed on why he believes other managers target him, Conte said he can not pin-point a reason - but fired a warning that he will not take it lying down. You understand? He went away, but he continued to look here.

"I repeat I am in the middle of my contract, if I am going to sign a new one it depends on the club but my commitment is total and I want to stay". I am improving a bit my English, because this is the real problem for me, otherwise we can go, we can go to fight. I have zero problems.

Conte insisted his comments were not pre-meditated, suggesting Mourinho's are. "Because I don't like to speak about the other coaches, the other players".

"I'm ready to fight for me, for my players, for the club, with everyone".

"I'm not this type of person".

Mourinho wasted no time in hitting back at Conte's criticism, however, reminding the Chelsea manager on Friday night he was previously accused in a match-fixing scandal for which the Italian was later acquitted.

Asked if Mourinho was resorting to "cinema" to distract from performances and results, Conte added: "I don't know. Now you have to show football knowledge and the cinema is not enough for the coach".

The former Juventus boss also took exception to Arsene Wenger's complaints over the awarding of a penalty to Chelsea in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday, and believes the Frenchman would not have complained had he seen the decisions that went in the Gunners' favour. You have to accept the decision.

Conte has been vocal in recent weeks about improving the depth of his squad in January, and Chelsea made their first signing on Friday, moving swiftly to acquire Ross Barkley for £15 million from Everton.

"We are talking about a player with great potential", the Italian said. "He has good prospects for Chelsea".
