Manchester United and former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has had a dig at Antonio Conte for his animated attitude on the sidelines, The Metro reports.

Conte has often been seen jumping into the home fans at Stamford Bridge when things are going well. When things aren’t going well, he’ll often punch the turf in frustration.

Mourinho’s dig at Conte wasn’t direct as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was also targeted for this behaviour.

When being questioned on whether the Portugese still had the hunger to win silverware, Mourinho compared his personality on the touchline with others, as The Metro reports.

The Metro quotes Mourinho saying:

Because I don’t behave as a clown on the touchline, it means that I’ve lost my passion?

Conte won’t care what Mourinho says

mourinho & conte
Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte have been involved in a tense rivalry since last season.

The Italian will likely be asked about Mourinho’s clown remark but won’t take it to heart.

Conte will have far greater concerns and he’s certainly not silly enough to start an indirect argument with the 54-year-old.

Mourinho’s United are just one point ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League.
