Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has disclosed that the one-time bitter feud that existed between and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has ended as they both prepare their sides for the FA Cup final in Wembley tomorrow.
The two managers have been involved in a war of words since the 2016/17 season when Mourinho threw criticisms at Conte for celebrating wildly after Chelsea thrashed Man United 4 nil at Stamford Bridge, with the Italian responding by accusing Mourinho of being obsessed with Chelsea.
The feud progressed into the 2017/18 season when Mourinho described Conte’s touchline manner as clown-like whilst asserting the Italian’s involvement in a match-fixing scandal which he was cleared off in Italy.
Conte replied by describing the former Chelsea manager as a little and a fake.
In the course of an interview with Portuguese news outlet Record, Mourinho said:
“It’s okay. It’s okay. He stretched out (to shake hands), I stretched out. We got bored”.
“After the game in Manchester, I invited him to come to my office. We talked. Nothing’s wrong.”
