Antonio Conte Fires Back At Jose Mourinho Over Erisken Deal
Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte, has hit back at Jose Mourinho, claiming the Tottenham Hotspur boss twisted his words over Christian Eriksen.
Mourinho earlier this week, criticised Conte for speaking publicly about signing Eriksen from Spurs, stating all coaches “should behave the same way”.
Inter are still in talks with the Danish midfielder over a potential transfer, either this month or when his contract expires in the summer.
And Mourinho’s comments have clearly annoyed Conte, who would not speak further on the discussions with Eriksen.
“I no longer talk about the transfer market,” Conte told reporters on Sunday.
“The last time I did it, someone we all know twisted my words so I won’t say anything anymore.
“I never said anything unusual about the January transfer market making it difficult for all coaches. Every time I say something, it always gets amplified or twisted.”
