Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has responded to Jose Mourinho’s outburst of his sideline behavior.
Jose Mourinho seemed less than pleased with Conte’s sideline conduct, as the Chelsea coach looked to encourage his home support to get behind their players.
The Manchester United boss suffered a humiliating defeat to his former side, and was unhappy with Antonio Conte’s attempt to get the Chelsea fans into the game.
Conte on his behalf felt he did nothing wrong, and was merely trying to get the Chelsea fans to drown out the vocal Manchester United fans.
Conte stated the following to Sky Sports:
“I was listening to the support of Manchester United, always supporting their team and after a great win like this I was asking my fans to do a clap for the players for the performance, I think this is normal. All the players deserve this clap. When there is a private conversation it is right to remain private, I have great respect for Jose, he is a great manager and he won a lot here.”
On Chelsea’s dominating performance:
“I am pleased with a great performance. We started very well, with high intensity and moving the ball quickly, creating chances to score the goal. I see the commitment of the players in training every day and they deserve this. We are improving; we must continue to work, because only through the work we can improve. We know that we have a long way to go, but I’m satisfied.”
