Antonio Conte stirs Jose Mourinho feud with handshake snub

Antonio Conte

Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness gave their views on Antonio Conte's decision to drop David Luiz and player power at Chelsea.

The Brazil global did not even make the bench as Andreas Christensen was handed a start, with rumours of a rift with Conte being the reason for his omission circulating around social media.

The rivalry between Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho got even deeper after Chelsea's 1-0 defeat of Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as both men failed to carry out the customary handshake.

There seemed to be no change in the tensions between Conte and Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge and the Italian admits that he was not going to wait for a handshake from his counterpart at the final whistle. "I was there. I shook hands with the people who were there", Mourinho told reporters. It's normal. This can happen to every one of my players, if I see that they are not in good form'.

The United manager, twice sacked by Chelsea despite winning the English title three times, had irked Conte by criticising his habit of complaining about injuries this season. I can not go to chase him. "You are always anxious with these things". "Of course we missed some important players, especially the quality and the physicality of some of them who could not be available".

'Manchester United is a really good team they will want to win, like us.
