It was a huge game between Antonio Conte’s Chelsea and José Mourinho’s Manchester United as the blues ended up beating the Red devils by a 1-0 score line (thanks to a Morata goal). At the end of the game, it seems like José Mourinho was waiting close to the tunnel as he wanted to shake Conte’s hand. In the end, the Italian coach seemingly snubbed him as he got caught up in the post-game celebrations. Here is what Mourinho had to say on the matter after the game (via Metro) : ” No he did not shake my hand, he disappeared. I shook his assistants hands instead which is pretty much the same thing…”.
Mourinho then added (via Chris Winterburn) : “They pretty much scored during the only moment were they had the advantage over us. I think it was a very evenly matched game. We created and had a lot of good chances as we were lacking the finishing touch. I don’t like to talk about injuries but we were missing many players today which didn’t help. Lukaku? He gave it his all”.
Conte then added : “This is a crucial win for us and for our confidence indeed. Luiz? I don’t know he will have to do better. Morata and Hazard were great today so I am very pleased. Handshake? You have to earn the respect on the pitch, not outside of it…”.
