Jose Mourinho: War of words with Chelsea's Antonio Conte over for me

16 Enero 2018

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho brings an end to his war of words with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, insisting that he does not enjoy feuds with rivals. Perhaps his Chelsea side still hasn't recovered from the festive period workload and hasn't had sufficient rest time.

With a goalless draw against the Foxes, who played the last 22 minutes with 10 men following Ben Chilwell's second yellow card at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were held 0-0 for the third successive match in all competitions for the first time.

Chelsea improved after coach Antonio Conte replaced Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas with Pedro and Willian in the 58th minute. Conte maintains that the team struggles right now are not about tactics, but fatigue instead.

To this the Portuguese responded with great valor, saying, "I don't".

"It's important that the fans must know that we want to play out from the back", the Belgium goalkeeper added.

He said on the matter: "The problem is not only for Morata". In both systems we are conceding less but, with both systems, we are scoring less than last season.

The point sees Chelsea remain 3rd in the Premier League, with Conte responding to questions as to whether the squad he has at his disposal is big enough to cope with the demanding fixture schedule his side face. Mahrez looked dangerous every time he received the ball, and almost broke the deadlock with a deflected effort that went just wide. But I think, today, I saw a lot of players very tired.

It was the fifth game in a row that the Spaniard has failed to find the back of the net, although Conte believes the entire team should take responsibility when it comes to scoring goals.

"Then when I decided to put fresh energy on, the game changed". It's not important who scores, but to score. "I think the sending off was harsh", he said.
