Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino played a Jose Mourinho on Conte once again, as Chelsea were close to victory against Spurs at the Bridge.
The warm relationship between the two managers was put to test in yesterday’s derby.
Conte’s assistants had reacted angrily to a Tottenham challenge on Willian late in the game, prompting Pochettino to walk across to Conte and ask him to calm down his staff.
Conte speaking about the incident, said: “During the game we spoke in one moment and he explained to me he was in disagreement with one of my assistants, but nothing important.”
Conte appeared to gesture to his bench to settle down immediately afterwards and Pochettino played down the situaton after the game. He said: “It was nothing important just a friendly chat and we have a good relationship. It was a chat about some action but I forget that.”
