Ancelotti to replace Wenger, Conte out at Chelsea

His tenure at Chelsea has been a fiery one, and Antonio Conte's latest bust-up with Jose Mourinho has only served to prove that the London club will constantly be dealing with drama from the Italian as long as he stays at the club.

Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: "I think when a person insults another, you can expect a response".

He stepped down at the end of his contract a year ago and has expressed an interest in working in the Premier League.

Chelsea's relationship with Italian managers is an interesting one.

There's no doubt the oil rich club would see Mourinho or Conte as the high profile names to take them to the next level in the continent's biggest competition.

"I can give my opinion to my club for every situation but then they have to make the best decision, and that is right".

Conte and Mourinho have been arguing since the Portuguese suggested his rival was a "clown" for being so animated on the touchline.

Their enmity stretches back to early last season, with Mourinho accusing his Chelsea counterpart of humiliating him with the scale of his celebrations as United fell to a 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in October 2016.

There were reports last week that a £50m deal will be tabled by Chelsea for Juventus' Alex Sandro, whom the Blues targeted last summer as well, but failed to get. I don't ask to change the situation. You never know in football, after all.

Antonio Conte is unconcerned by Jose Mourinho stating he has "contempt" for the Chelsea head coach, seemingly bringing an end to their war of words.

'As I said before I am always telling the same things. You must have great experience, you must trust in your work.

With Premier League title way out of sights, both Conte and Mourinho will try to lead their team as far as they can into the Champions League.

The former Italy boss has been linked with a move Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid and AC Milan in recent months.

With Manchester City completely running away with the Premier League title it seems that the two coaches have created some drama to deflect from their side's underperformance compared to Pep Guardiola's men, but it seems that the feud has gone way beyond anyone could imagine.

I'm happy and I'm enjoying my period here.
