What Happened When Jose Mourinho Smiled At Antonio Conte On The Touchline

In a moment that would have been branded unlikely a couple of months ago, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte have shared signs of friendship this afternoon. Could we even say they look happy in each other's company?

Manchester United manager Mourinho recently referred to some of his managerial colleagues being 'clowns on the touchline' which led Conte to believe he was being talked about. Conte then hit back saying Mourinho had senile dementia.

Despite all of their disagreements, the pair shared a handshake before the game and even shared a joke on the touchline in the 18th minute.

Is this actually happening?

Conte and Mourinho's shouting matches have been somewhat entertaining, but it looks like the pair have put their differences aside this afternoon.

This is what happened when Mourinho smiled at Antonio Conte this afternoon. Who'd have thought it?

A few weeks ago, two people from Italia 1 satirical show Le Lenem approached Mourinho to sign a Manchester United shirt outside of the Lowry hotel, where he lives, only to reveal it as having Conte's name printed on it.

Mourinho signed the shirt and took everything in good spirits - unlike his managerial rival.

Conte, looking confused and a little aggravated by the gesture, didn't exactly take to kindly to the gift.


Who will win this afternoon - Chelsea or Manchester United?
