Antonio Conte reportedly shouted “play the ball” at Jose Mourinho during their touchline row in Chelsea‘s FA Cup quarter-final win over Manchester United on Monday night.
The Chelsea manager was believed to have grown frustrated at Manchester United’s approach to the game and his emotions boiled over in the first half after Antonio Valencia’s challenge from behind on Marcos Alonso sparked a vocal reaction from the Italian.
According to The Daily Mail, Conte screamed “play the ball!” and “again, again, again, again!” at Mourinho in reference to the number of fouls committed by Manchester United’s players during the first half at Stamford Bridge.
The managers had to be kept apart by the fourth official on the touchline at Stamford Bridge as the game continued.
Chelsea ended up winning the clash after N’Golo Kante scored the only goal of the game in the second half at Stamford Bridge, after Ander Herrera was sent off for two bookings before the break.
