Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has further stoked the bad blood between him and his Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho by stating that the Portuguese tactician is suffering from memory loss.
The former Juventus boss was speaking on Friday ahead of his side’s FA Cup clash with English Championship side Norwich City on Saturday evening.
When asked for his thoughts about Mourinho’s comments labelling those (managers) playacting on the sidelines as ‘clowns’, Conte revealed that maybe the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager is suffering from dementia senile (memory loss).
In his words, Conte said: “I think that he has to see himself in the past. Maybe he was speaking about himself in the past.”
“Sometimes I think he forgets what he says in the past, his behaviour.
“I think sometimes dementia senile when you forget what you do in the past.” he concluded.
In his reply to Conte’s comments after his Manchester United side defeated Derby County 2-0 on Friday night, Mourinho said: “I don’t need Chelsea manager to say I made mistakes in past and will in future. What I will say is I will never be banned for match fixing.”
