Man Utd legend Scholes tells Conte: Mourinho's got you!

Jose Mourinho has gotten under the skin of Antonio Conte, says Manchester UnitedPaul Scholes.

The Portuguese started some mind games with his rivals as he stated on Wednesday that there was managers who were 'crying' about injuries. Chelsea boss Conte, who has struggled with his squad depth this season, couldn't help but snap back at the Red Devils manager.

And Scholes reckons the Italian has played into Mourinho's hands.

"It looks like he has done a little bit," said Scholes.

"Conte was probably badly advised, someone told him they were talking about him but Mourinho didn't mention anyone's name. He just said 'other managers'. Conte's had a little bite back.

"November 5 [when Chelsea play Manchester United] could be interesting."
