The Chelsea manager also labelled his Manchester United counterpart as “fake”.

Also, the Blues boss’s reaction is in response Mourinho’s reference to the match-fixing scandal that he was caught up in during his time in Italy, a case in which he was later fully acquitted by a court.
Conte made the statement in a post-match conference when demanded his reaction to Mourinho’s latest hit at him.
“The situation is very clear. I don’t have anything to clarify,” Conte told reporters. “It will be the opportunity in the game against United when we go to Old Trafford.
“Me and him face to face. I’m ready. I don’t know if he’s ready.
“I consider him a little man, I consider him a man with a very low profile. When there are these types of comments, before (making them) you have to know very well the truth.
“Before you make this type of comment, before to hurt another person, you must pay great attention. You show you are a little man.
“I know him very well in the past. In the past he was a little man in many circumstances, is a little man in the present and for sure he will be a little man in the future,” Conte said.
