Antonio Conte hit back at Jose Mourinho, telling him to stop talking about Chelsea after the Manchester United boss criticised managers who complain about injuries.
After United’s 1-0 victory in Lisbon, Mourinho spoke of other managers who “cry and cry and cry” about injuries. He however did not mention any names.
Although key players were ruled out of his side, Mourinho insisted that he was not making any excuses but believes that others are guilty of this in the Premier League.
According to AFP, Conte made repeated mention of the injury situation in his team, missing players like N'Golo Kante, Victor Moses and Danny Drinkwater after a 3-3 draw against Roma.
"I never speak about injuries. Other managers, they cry, they cry, they cry when a player is injured," Mourinho said after the win in Benfica.
"If I wanted to moan and others I could cry like the others for five minutes; Ibrahimovic, Fellaini, Pogba, Rojo."
Conte asked if these comments were aimed at him and said: "If this is for me my answer is this -- he has to think of his team and look at himself not the others.
"A lot of times Mourinho has to see what happened in Chelsea. Also last season. He has to look at his team."
