Conte and Mourinho clashed after Chelsea's 4-0 win over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge last season, with the Portuguese accusing his rival of attempting to "humiliate" the visitors with his exuberant celebrations.

Reports emerged on Thursday evening claiming there were fears inside Old Trafford that Mourinho could resign after two seasons.

Asked about Mourinho's comments on Friday, Conte used the Italian phrase "demenza senile", which translates as senile dementia, before saying he was ready to respond in kind to any taunts thrown in his direction. I think that someone forgets what's said in the past, which is his behaviour.

Explaining the reason for living in a hotel, Mourinho said: "I am very lazy and because I like to arrive in the hotel, I don't want anyone to be anxious because I live in a two square metres room".

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager has been linked with a switch to Paris Saint-Germain recently.

Chelsea are coming off a 2-2 draw against Arsenal as both sides will meet again soon in the English Football league cup. "Sometimes you forget what you do in the past".

"I can talk, if I want, about referee decisions for one month but I don't want to do this because we must have respect for the decision". There is a theory that he feels jealousy towards Conte who, like him, has taken Chelsea to the Premier League title.

"Wenger must to find this way [accepting decisions]; it's not good, it's not good". Wenger? When Arsene looks back at the game, he will realize that he was lucky with the refereeing decisions. You have to accept the decision.

"He's experienced, won a lot, but he needs to continue what he has done in the past".
