Antonio Conte ready to fight Man United boss Jose Mourinho on touchline next month
Antonio Conte is ready for a physical showdown with Jose Mourinho later this month with the two sides facing off later this month.
The manager has been involved in a war of words with Mourinho for some time now but those back and forth comments have now reached a boiling point.
This is after Jose Mourinho claimed he would never be accused of match-fixing, with Conte having been investigated for suspicious claims during his time with Serie B side Siena in 2011.

That lead to a very angry response from Conte who labelled the former Chelsea boss a ‘little man’ and ‘fake’ and it doesn’t stop there according to reports on Sunday.
Actually Conte not been the same since his Mourinho spat a few weeks ago. Needs to clear his head and concentrate and show us some passion like he did last season. His body language looks wrong and moaning about the signings is not going to help. His still got a lot of quality.— Chelsea FC Fan Club (@ConteBlueArmy) February 4, 2018
There are suggestions that the Italian has agreed to calm the war of words and public feud, but will still look to physically confront the Portuguese boss as their meeting later in February.
Chelsea will face Man United on the 25th of this month at Old Trafford and it certainly sounds as though Conte is well and truly up for a scrap if it comes to that.
Though, in even more incredible reports, Jose Mourinho has reportedly welcomed that challenge and will be a ‘visible presence before and after the game.’
Safe to say, he’s ready to entice him into a possible battle and with Chelsea officials reportedly not going to stop Conte if he does wish to confront Mourinho physically, we could certainly see some very big fireworks on the touchline during that clash.
