It's hardly a secret that Conte and the man who of course was seen as a Chelsea legend by many fans - and by some still is - do not see eye to eye, and it seems that Conte can not help but take the bait where Mourinho is concerned. "What I will say is I will never be banned for match fixing".
Conte was asked whether it irritated him when rival managers talked about him or his players.
On Thursday, Mourinho said he did not need to act like a "clown" on the sidelines to prove his commitment to his club.
"Probably the journalist wanted to say that but didn't have the courage so he said "Mourinho said you behaved like a clown".

"I think he (Mourinho) has to see himself in the past, maybe he was speaking about himself in the past, yeah?" said Conte.
Jose Mourinho has responded to Antonio Conte's criticism by claiming his words were misinterpreted.
Conte continued: "And sometimes I think there is, I don't know the name-'demenza senile'?-when you are a bit [Conte taps his temple], when you forget what you do in the past".
"Everybody knows, I don't need the Chelsea manager to say, that I made mistakes in the past and I will make in the future, hopefully".
Conte was implicated in a 2011 scandal while in charge of Siena and later served a four-month ban, but always denied any wrongdoing and was later acquitted by an Italian judge in May 2016.

Mourinho's comments came after Conte had accused the Portuguese of forgetting his own antics in the past.
"So wrong question and obviously a strong answer but I don't blame, the only thing I want to say to end the story is yes I made mistakes in the past on the touchline, yes I will make less but I think I will still make a few". Press should apologize to me and him.
But Conte was quick to remind Mourinho that he was once rather similar.
"I was asked about my passion, and you know I was speaking about myself, and then the question to the Chelsea manager was that I told he behaved like a clown".
Mourinho's reference to that controversy was just the latest twist in a verbal spat between the managers that seemed to have reached a climax earlier in the day when Conte was quizzed by reporters.
