CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte will not forget what Jose Mourinho said about his past links to match fixing.

The two managers have been involved in a war of words of late.

Mourinho claimed he is still passionate despite not acting like a ‘clown’ on the touchline, which was taken as a dig at Conte.

He responded by suggesting the Manchester United boss has amnesia with his own reputation.

But Mourinho then took the spat to a new level and said: “I don’t need Chelsea manager to say I made mistakes in past and will in future.

“What I will say is I will never be banned for match-fixing.”

And it reached boiling point at the weekend when Conte repeatedly branded the Portuguese a ‘little man’.

But Conte has no regrets about his feud with the United manager and feels no remorse for his own comments.

Ahead of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Arsenal tomorrow at Stamford Bridge, Conte said: “I have this look of a person that regrets? I don’t think so.

“We have both said things and we will see what happens in the future.”

Asked if the FA have intervened, Conte replied: “He used serious words, said serious words. I won’t forget this.

“This is not a problem from the club, it is a problem with me and him. I stop.”

Mourinho is expected to respond when he has his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of United’s visit from Stoke next Monday.

Conte, meanwhile, is eager to speak with Mourinho directly.

Chelsea go to United in the Premier League on February 25.
