Being part of the rivalry comes with the job description, however Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho seem to be taking it to a whole new level. If media jibes were not enough, the two managers can’t even see eye to eye when called upon.
The hype surrounding the duo’s encounter was already pent up with curiosity and it did not disappoint as the pre-match handshake between Conte and Mourinho was awkward as it gets.
Perhaps one has to go back to the ice age to witness such a cold greeting between two beings as neither looked in the mood for pleasantries.
Kudos to Conte’s Chelsea though who won 1-0 in the end. Check out the handshake pre kick-off below –
