Jose Mourinho has revealed he has nothing but contempt for his bitter rival Antonio Cone after hitting back at the Chelsea manager.

Mourinho and Conte have both been involved in war of words with both managers hurling insults at each other and with Conte throwing the last salvo, the Manchester United manager has now responded, revealing how much contempt he feels toward the Italian.

Mourinho said: “I think when a person insults another, you can expect a response. Or you can expect contempt, silence.

“The first time he insulted me I had a response; a response that I know touched the point where he really feels hurt.

“Then he insulted me for a second time, but now I change. Now contempt and, for me, contempt means end of the story.”

Conte has waged a bitter war of words with Mourinho, branding him ‘a little man’ and ‘fake’ after the Manchester United boss brought up his rival’s match-fixing controversy in Italy. He also claimed the Portuguese coach has senile dementia.

Mourinho appeared to open up old wounds earlier this month after suggesting his rival manager acts like 'a clown' on the touchline, an accusation that inspired Conte to describe Mourinho as suffering 'senile dementia'.
