Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has had a go at each other in the past week, with Conte hitting back at the former Chelsea manager, suggesting he was ‘obsessed’ by Chelsea.

Pundit and former Liverpool great Jamie Redknapp has told the Portuguese to focus on his job and stop bothering Conte.

“Mourinho seems to be wasting too much energy in picking fights with other managers,” the former Liverpool and England star told the Daily Mail.

“He doesn’t need to do this. It seemed obvious that Antonio Conte was the intended recipient when Mourinho moaned last week that some managers ‘cry and cry’ about fixtures.

“Why is Mourinho bothering to wind up Conte? He should be worried about Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, who are threatening to run away with the Premier League.

“After enjoying an excellent start, Mourinho has given himself an unnecessary problem. ‘When you keep focusing on the negatives, it filters through to the players. With Tottenham at Old Trafford on Saturday, Mourinho must focus on the positives.”
