The Blues' boss further added: "When you forgot what you say in the past, your behaviours, and when you totally forgot, you must be anxious as it means you are becoming old and you need a check. Sometimes I think there is, I don't know the name, but "demenza senile" (the Italian for "senile dementia"). when you forget what you do in the past".
The two managers have been engaging in a public war of words over the past 48 hours, beginning when Mourinho insisted that just because he doesn't "run up and down the touchline like a clown" doesn't mean that he doesn't care about his job or that he might walk away.
Conte certainly took it that way and he bit back strongly, reminding Mourinho that he could be similarly animated on the touchline during his younger days. And I will make in the future hopefully.
"I don't blame the Chelsea manager at all". "It is very unusual", he replied.
"I was asked about my passion and, you know, I was speaking about myself and then the question to the Chelsea manager was that I said he behaved like a clown", said Mourinho. What never happened to me and will never happen is to be suspended for match-fixing.
"If Wenger watched the game again he would understand he was lucky in the game with the referee's decisions", he said. Otherwise I stay silent but I repeat: In this situation, you must have respect and I think that I do this, but at the same time I am starting to be a bit annoyed because once, twice [it has happened].
29 July 2017: Conte says that he must avoid "a Mourinho season" as the champions attempt to defend their Premier League title.
"He [Wenger] has to accept the decisions". Also, Wenger try to find this way like other coaches and it is not good.
"He's experienced, won a lot, but he needs to continue what he has done in the past".
"The people who know me very well in Italy [know my personality]. for this reason you must pay great attention when you speak because if you want to go to fight with me I am ready".
When inquired whether he was referring to the ban handed to Conte for failing to report the match-fixing claims, the former Chelsea gaffer added: "Did he?"
The 48-year-old Italian gaffer, who will have one year remaining on his contract come the summer, penned a new contract at Chelsea but did not extend its length.
