We were used to Jose Mourinho’s antics while he was Chelsea and how he used to attack just about every manager. The former Chelsea boss has now taken a dig at the current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Mourinho was unhappy with Conte’s statement about Chelsea finishing 10th because of the Portuguese.

Conte said: “Two years ago Chelsea finished tenth; that cannot happen again. We know the difficulty and for sure we want to avoid the Mourinho season with Chelsea.”

“The coaches of the previous two champions [Chelsea and Leicester] both lost their jobs [the next season] and we are working very well to find the best solutions and use them.”

Mourinho has now replied the Chelsea boss, saying: “I could answer in many different ways but I’m not willing to lose my hair to speak about Antonio Conte.”

If you don’t understand what he means, he’s taking a dig at Conte’s hair in a very subtle and cunning way. Conte was once losing his hair due to genetics and then did a hair transplant to have his current hair.

Mourinho will always be Mourinho. Maybe another 4-0 trashing will keep him quiet for a little while.
