The two managers exchanged jibes when Conte was in charge of Chelsea a few years ago and Mourinho was in charge at Old Trafford.

Mourinho has once again ignited the feud after Conte's public comments about Christian Eriksen possibly making a move to the San Siro.

“I think Antonio, I think Antonio,” Mourinho said, as per BBC Sport.

“I think it was publicly. He is very positive that Eriksen is coming to Inter.

“We shouldn’t speak about players from other clubs until they become our players. You ask me about Gedson [Fernandes, Spurs’ new signing from Benfica] since the moment Gedson’s name was on the screen and I told you nothing [until he signed].

"You protect everybody. Is it a question of respect? I don’t want to give you a headline. That’s up to you.

“If Inter are confident, they are confident because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn’t happen yet.

"So when I see people speaking, especially people with responsibilities, I am a little bit surprised.”
