EPL: Manchester United anxious Mourinho could quit

Conte suggested that the Manchester United manager had forgotten some of his own past behaviour when it was put to him that Mourinho had suggested that he behaved like a clown on the touchline.

He was alleged to have failed to report fixing in a match between Siena and Albinoleffe in the 2010-11 season.

He was acquitted of any wrongdoing over the matter in 2016, shortly before taking over at Chelsea.

Conte had reacted angrily this week to Mourinho's assertion that he did not need to act like a "clown" in his technical area, saying: "I think he has to see himself in the past - maybe he was speaking about himself in the past". Yes, I will make less but I think I will still make a few.

"I say garbage, I don't find a better word than that to define the talk", Mourinho told reporters when asked about a potential departure from United. "That never happened to me and will never happen".

"Did he? Not me", the United boss replied.

Conte and Mourinho clashed after Chelsea's 4-0 win over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge last season, with the Portuguese accusing his rival of attempting to "humiliate" the visitors with his exuberant celebrations.

"There is a person that continues to look here".

"Sometimes I think there is, I don't know the name, but demenza senile. when you forget what you do in the past".

United chiefs are also finding Mourinho's public spats "hard to justify" and "self-defeating", including picking fights with Paul Scholes and the club over their spending. "I have no problem".

Mourinho said: "A wrong question and obviously a strong answer but I don't blame (Conte)".

"So I don't blame the Chelsea manager at all and I understand the reaction but I was talking about myself by saying that I don't need to behave like a clown to show passion".

"I don't blame him", he had said. Probably the journalist wanted to say that but didn't have the courage so he said, "Mourinho said you behaved like a clown".
