Manchester United looked out of sorts as Pedro, Cahill, Eden Hazard, and Kante helped Chelsea to a comprehensive victory. Chelsea boss Antonio Conte got into a heated exchange with Mourinho on the touchline after Conte beckoned to supporters to egg the team on.
What began as a warm welcome for Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge ended in humiliation as he suffered his biggest league defeat in his career.
News reports say Mourinho told his opposite number; You don’t celebrate like that at 4-0, you can do it at 1-0, otherwise it’s humiliating for us.’
Conte appeared to address the issue in his post-match conference; ‘I was a player. I know what the feeling is like (to score). I only told the fans to applaud the team because the team deserved it,’ said Conte.
There has always been respect for all, and naturally for Manchester United. Nothing happened. I did something absolutely normal. I didn’t do anything to humiliate Mourinho.
‘I think that today, it was right to call our fans. In that moment I was listening only to the supporters of Manchester United at 4-0. So I called the fans to give the players a great clap after this kind of performance.
‘The players, after a 4-0 win, deserved a great clap. It’s very normal. We live with emotions. If you want to cut the emotions, we can stay at home and I will change jobs.’
