‘No Fight With Conte’- Man United Boss Mourinho Speaks Ahead Of FA Cup Final
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims to have cleared the air with Chelsea counterpart Antonio Conte, with the pair set to be reunited in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
Two passionate characters have become embroiled in a war of words this season, with there seemingly no love lost between two men prepared to speak their mind.
A coaching feud came to a head in January when Mourinho branded Conte “a clown” and “a fake”, with the Italian hitting back by labelling the Portuguese “a little man”.
There was, however, to be a handshake between the two prior to United’s 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on February 25 and post-match discussions behind the scenes.
Mourinho considers that to be the end of petty bickering, telling Record ahead of another tactical battle with Conte at Wembley Stadium: “He stretched out, I stretched. We got bored.
“After the game in Manchester I invited him to come to my office. We talked, nothing’s wrong. It’s OK.”
