Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte claims that he has no problem with Jose Mourinho.
Jose Mourinho has just been officially appointed as AS Roma coach on Tuesday (4/5/2021).
This means The Special One, nicknamed Mourinho, will meet again with Conte after their relationship that was not harmonious when they were both careers in the Premier League.
Rome’s statement announcing Jose Mourinho as a coach has also been recognized by Conte.
He also wishes Mourinho the best, except when dealing with Inter Milan.
“This is good news for everyone, I wish him all the best, except when he played against Inter,” said Conte, quoted by Football Italia.
Will they hug each other when they meet after the match?
“To be sure, there is great respect between us,” said the Italian coach.
Mourinho was the last coach to win the Serie A title with Inter in 2009-2010 before Conte repeated it this season.
“It (winning) is a tremendous satisfaction for us and the fans. I celebrate it with my family,” said the former Chelsea and Italy national team coach.
“When I joined the new team, I was the first supporter and I was still a fan of the club I coached,” he said.
The 51-year-old coach’s contract at Inter Milan will expire in June 2022.
