Inter Milan coach Conte dismisses Mourinho blast; welcomes Young

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte has shrugged off a blast from Jose Mourinho.

Tottenham boss Mourinho is angry with Conte talking publicly about signing Christian Eriksen.

"It's the usual. Jose and I know each other, it's not a problem," shrugged Conte.

“Young has just arrived, so it's unthinkable to suggest he'd come with us to Lecce. He will start training and we'll work towards next week against Cagliari.

“Ashley is super experienced and played both on the right and left at Manchester United. He was born a winger, but can play as the fifth in a midfield. He hadn't played much recently in the Premier League, so will take a little while to get into shape.

“This is the most difficult period of the season for a coach, because there are constantly names in the papers, some stories that are true, others that aren't. The transfer window is like a potential virus that we must contain."

Matias Vecino has also been linked with a move away from Inter and Conte only stated the midfielder “will not be available against Lecce."
