Antonio Conte Receives Signed Jose Mourinho Shirt In Press Conference And His Reaction Is Gold
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was far from happy during Thursday's press conference when an Italian prankster tried to present him with a signed Jose Mourinho shirt.
As you see in the footage below, the prankster handed Conte the shirt and then said "a present from Jose Mourinho."
Conte, looking confused and a little aggravated by the gesture, didn't exactly take to kindly to the gift.
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.
Mourinho recently referred to some of his managerial colleagues being 'clowns on the touchline' which led Conte to believe he was being talked about. He hit back saying Mourinho had senile dementia.
The shouting matches have been somewhat entertaining and now the Chelsea manager's press conference has delivered another memorable moment.
Here's how social media reacted to the incident:

An Italian journalist, apparently unaware of why doing so isn't normal, has just showed a very bemused Antonio Conte a video on a tablet, related to Jose Mourinho, and given him a Manchester United shirt with Conte's name on the back.
