Conte suggests rival manager Mourinho has senile dementia

Chelsea stars set to return against Arsenal as Conte prioritises Carabao Cup

Conte was acquitted in 2016 of charges of not stopping a match-fixing scandal when in charge of Sienna in 2011, per Reuters (h/t Sky Sports).

The Chelsea manager responded in a due manner by saying, "I think maybe he was talking about himself in the past".

"Probably the journalist wanted to say that but didn't have the courage so he said "Mourinho said you behaved like a clown".

"Everybody knows that I don't need the Chelsea manager to know that I made mistakes in the past and I will make mistakes in the future". When they won the FA Cup and Community Shield, I think the referee decisions were a bit odd, you understand?

"But what never happened to me - and will never happen - is to be suspended for match-fixing".

Those words prompted an acerbic response from Mourinho referencing Conte's history of facing accusations relating to match-fixing.

"Did he? Not me", the United boss replied.

Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history
The 54-year-old native of Sandusky, OH has been out of the coaching ranks since the conclusion of the 2008 season. The Oakland Raiders never really recovered from the decision to trade Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay 16 years ago.

On Thursday, Mourinho appeared to take a thinly-veiled swipe at his managerial rivals when comparing his own behaviour in the technical area to other managers in the top flight.

Conte added: "There is a person that continues to look here".

"The people who know me very well in Italy [know my personality]. for this reason you must pay great attention when you speak because if you want to go to fight with me I am ready".

"At the same time, when I start to listen with regularity to this situation it is right to answer, because it is amusing and I laugh a lot". I am improving a bit my English because this is the real problem for me, otherwise we can go to fight. He is a complete player, but at the same time he is very young and he has just started his career and now, I repeat, if he signs for the club and has this great opportunity to play in a great club with ambition and great targets and also to put yourself in this new challenge. I have zero problems.

But Conte was quick to remind Mourinho that he was once rather similar.

"I don't blame him". So, I don't blame the Chelsea manager at all and I understand his reaction. "I was speaking about myself", he said. I was speaking about myself, and then the question to the Chelsea manager was like I said that he behaves like a clown.

The former Juventus head coach will only have one year left on his contract at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, and it is understood that Chelsea's transfer policy has led to a number of disagreements.
