Stop thinking about Chelsea, face your own team - Conte blasts Mourinho

Conte revealed the pair picked up knocks as Chelsea surrendered a 2-0 lead to draw 3-3 against Roma in the Champions League Wednesday, ESPN writes. "David Luiz had a little problem in his calf and in this moment I can't risk my players. we are playing always the same players" (via Daily Star). "Other managers, they cry, they cry, they cry when a player is injured", Mourinho who had two spells at Chelsea said after the win in Benfica.

"I never speak about injuries", he said.

Chelsea supporters have also turned on their one-time hero and taunted him when he returned with his new club in an FA Cup tie at Stamford Bridge last season.

Chelsea salvaged a point through Eden Hazard's headed equaliser and frustrated Conte admits he cocked up. It has only been two games, but already Chelsea are counting down the days until Kante returns from the hamstring injury he picked up on worldwide duty. "It's not about injuries, but trying to get the best out of the team". It's right to take the responsibility for this.

ANTONIO CONTE ripped into Jose Mourinho after the Manchester United boss appeared to call him a cry baby.


Meanwhile, Conte is still unhappy he didn't get all his summer transfer targets.

Since the beginning of the season, he has been goading the Chelsea manager, starting with his disdain for Conte's 3-4-3 formation that won the English Premier League last season.

What he can do is recall one of those four youngsters and give them a chance in the first-team.

United were gifted the win when Mile Svilar - the youngest ever goalkeeper in the Champions League at 18 years of age - carried Marcus Rashford's free-kick over the goal-line, but Mourinho was still able to take plenty of pride from his team's performance. Many would say that pragmatic is a euphemism too.
