'Contempt' with Jose Mourinho mutual - Antonio Conte

I don't know if he said this for me.

"I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past". For sure I am enjoying the experience, staying in England, living this atmosphere and working with my players.

According to the Daily Mail, the 54-year-old said: "I think when a person insults another, you can expect a response".

"I just hope that in another four years' time he doesn't look back and wonder what went wrong". Learning to deal with these type of situations and if we speak about Michy we are at the same level. "I prefer to behave the way I am doing it, much more mature, better for my team and myself, I don't think you have to behave like a insane guy on the touchline to have that passion". It was not simple for me.

Mourinho, whose side host Stoke in the Premier League on Monday, has refused to rule out a January move for Alexis Sanchez, describing the Arsenal forward as a "phenomenal" player.

"What we believe really is there are some players in football world if you have the chance to sign them in January, March or July, you have to try and that's it".

This should be the final word on this matter, but of course it won't be.

"My plan was to play with one team in the FA Cup, and then these two games with nearly the same players".

So why worry about it?

And Allegri has emerged as one of the top contenders to succeed Conte at Chelsea, as he did at Juventus when the Blues boss left the Italian champions in 2014.

Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea, Conte added: "In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away".

It won't be easy, but Conte seems up for the challenge still. He could be here another year, another month, another decade.

"I don't know how I can answer you, I don't know". However, failure to land his transfer targets have caused a friction between Conte and Chelsea hierarchy and the Italian could move out before his contract expires in 2019. What more can you ask for?
