Premier League legend Alan Shearer believes that Antonio Conte snubbing Jose Mourinho after Chelsea’s 1-0 win against Manchester United was wrong, the Sun reports.
Much had been made of the heated relationship between the two managers in the build up to Sunday night’s match. Conte went off to celebrate with the team after the final whistle in the vital win. Mourinho was seen shaking the hands of other Chelsea coaching staff.
As per the Sun, Shearer thinks Conte didn’t do the right thing by not shaking Mourinho’s hand. Also insisting that the Manchester United manager deserves respect for his time at Chelsea.
Shearer is quoted by the Sun saying:
“I thought it was wrong of Antonio Conte to walk off and ignore Mourinho last night as he went to shake hands.”
The two have been involved in several exchanges, ever since our 4-0 thrashing against United last season.
However, Mourinho hasn’t shaken the hand of opposing managers throughout his career and isn’t immune to this behaviour.
Despite all the arguments between the two, Conte is the last one laughing at least for now.
