Jose Mourinho claims 'contempt' for verbal spat with Antonio Conte

Per Nick Ames of the Guardian, Conte said: "Everything is possible".

He won two La Liga titles and the Champions League during his three years at Barcelona and the Metro says he is "thought to be interested in working in the Premier League".

"For the manager of this club it's normal to have this type of situation, also if you won last season the league and you reached the final in the FA Cup", he said.

"The only word I can say is that he's a phenomenal player, apart from that Arsenal player, and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".

Conte then branded the United boss a "little man" and Mourinho, while refraining from retaliating again, made his opinion of the Chelsea head coach clear.

Former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is not being considered despite his availability since he was sacked by Bayern Munich.

"I am fully committed for Chelsea", he stated. "I think in other clubs this doesn't happen".

Darryl Issa, who, perhaps not coincidentally, also announced Wednesday that he would not seek reelection in 2018. A proposed leasing plan unveiled last week aims to open up all USA coasts to drillers over the next five years.


Chelsea are, thus, keeping their options open, with a number of managers being on the shortlist to replace Conte, the latest being compatriot Allegri.

However, Conte's future at Stamford Bridge has been under a cloud for the last few months, with the Italian's relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy souring since last summer's transfer window.

He added: "When you go to battle with Mourinho, he is very good in these kind of situations".

"Now I am fully committed for Chelsea, in this job to work with my players to try also to improve the club in the football aspect", Conte said.

"No, honestly we didn't speak about him, but I repeat we are talking about a really good player", Conte told reporters at Cobham Training Centre.

Allegri is without question one of the best bosses working in the game today.

As for Conte, should he leave London this summer as is widely reported, he will undoubtedly be linked with a return to the national side as they still seek a replacement for Giampiero Ventura.
