There is no love lost between Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and his capital rival Antonio Conte, as both coaches have slandered themselves in the media in recent weeks.
Both managers have shove their reputation aside to trade insulting words at each every time the media mentions or ask question regarding the other or their team. The Telegraph noted that both managers are not even sorry for their misdemeanor with each of them trying to justify their wrong.
It will be recalled that Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho had a spat on the touchline in the penultimate season – with Man United scheduled to host the Blues on the 25th of February in an intriguing clash, we expect to see a bit of tension on the touchline as they will have close proximity.
However, maybe in trying to broker peace, Italian journalists presented a Man United Jersey to Mourinho to sign on Wednesday night and it was a huge and the shirt carried Antonio Conte’s name behind it.
Mourinho acceded to their plea to sign the Jersey and after he did, they revealed to him the name and number behind it.

Apparently, Mourinho was in a good mood as it is claimed that the reporters would have had it differently if it was the opposite.
