Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has warned Jose Mourinho that he will not reduce his passion on the touchline but admits he does not have any anger towards the Manchester United boss off the field according to reports from Italian Newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The two managers clashed during their FA Cup tie at Stamford Bridge in March, with Conte furious at Mourinho and his players for their aggressive tactics towards Chelsea players in a match that ended 1-0 in favour of the Italian manager’s side.
Sometime in October, Mourinho had also cautioned Conte in his mode of celebrations on the touchline during Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over United and told the Italian on the touchline after the match that it was a ‘humiliation’. Mourinho who spoke with Conte in Italian said “1-0 is win” “4-0 is humiliation”
But Conte who is passionate with his job has defended his actions and insists his mindset towards games will not change while he’s in charge at Stamford Bridge.
‘We are animals on the field, during the game I am ready to do everything to win,’ Conte told the Italian Newspaper Corriere della Sera.
