Jose Mourinho made it very personal with Antonio Conte, when the United boss accused him of match fixing, during his time in Italy.
But now Conte has hit back at Jose, as he has called the Portuguese a ‘little man’ and a ‘man with low profile’.
“I think before you make this type of comment, before to hurt another person, you must pay great attention.”
“You show you are a little man. A little man. You don’t know very well [what] is the situation. But I know him very well in the past. In the past he was a little man in many circumstances, is a little man in the present and for sure he will be a little man in the future.

Also if he wants to try to change his behaviours … but the person’s this, Mourinho’s this. You know him very well. The level is very low. I repeat: I think before to speak you have to know very well what happened.”
“This is not my problem, I consider him a little man,” Conte repeated. “I consider him a man with a very low profile.”
“There is a story to speak for him and for me. You can change the story, but you have to know the story very well before hurting another person. In the last period he’s suffering a bit of amnesia. We are there, amnesia. When you become to be older, there is this type of risk. Also for me, and for you – for all. The problem is if you show this. He must pay great attention. He’s doing this with regularity.”
“I remember a stupid example with Ranieri.”
“When he offended Ranieri for his English. Then when Ranieri was sacked he put on a shirt for Ranieri. You are a fake. I think you have good consideration for a person or not. It doesn’t change your opinion to be more sympathetic. If you want to fight a person, you try to kill this person. And then after two years you try to help this person, because maybe it’s good for you, for your profile.”
