Ex-Chelsea boss Conte: Mourinho can do 'that' - but should he?

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has taken a swipe at predecessor Jose Mourinho.

Conte has urged Mourinho to show more respect in the wake of the three-finger gesture he made to Juventus fans earlier this season as Manchester United manager.

He said, "He won the treble [with Inter] and three Premier League titles with Chelsea, so I think he is entitled to do that gesture.

"However, respect is needed. Both from fans and managers. He's won a lot during his career, and in this gesture, that is everything about Mourinho."

Conte himself left Chelsea in the summer of 2018, just 12 months after leading the club to the Premier League title with a then-record 30 wins out of 38.
