Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that he insulted his Chelsea counterpart, Antonio Conte, with “a response that I know that touched the point where he really feels hurt”.
Conte launched a verbal assault on Mourinho, branding the Manchester United boss a “fake” and accusing him of being “a little man”.
Mourinho on Friday, responded to Conte’s latest barb, by revealing his “contempt” for his Italian rival.
“I think when a person insults another, you can expect a response. Or you can expect contempt.
“The first time he insulted me I had a response, a response that I know that touched the point where he really feels hurt.
“Then he insulted me for a second time but now I change and now contempt and for me contempt means end of the story,” Mourinho said.
