Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte ,has said that his relationship with Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho stops at mutual respect ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United, Skysports reports.
Both managers have been involved in several touchline confrontations, dating back to October 2016, when Mourinho suggested Conte had, “humiliated” him and his players by celebrating Chelsea’s fourth goal in a 4-0 win over United.
Conte insisted the pair’s relationship is professional ahead of their Super Sunday clash, but was stopped short in his pre-match press conference when asked if he will shake Mourinho’s hand after the game.
“It’s not important, the relationship between the coaches,” said Conte.
“We have to respect the job of other coach. I don’t like to speak about the other’s situation.”
