Antonio Conte has attacked Jose Mourinho’s strategies by demanding that he wants his Chelsea side to face teams who ‘want to play football’.
The Italian international conflicted with Mourinho on the touchline amid Chelsea’s 1-0 triumph over Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday evening after distinctly furious with Antonio Valencia’s aggressive tackle on Marcos Alonso.
After the match, Conte guaranteed that Hazard ‘couldn’t play football’ after he was continually fouled in the first 45min of the game, while Marcos Rojo got away for his alleged stamp on the hazard’s chest.
When questioned about what he thought of Rojo’s challenge on Friday, Conte replied: ‘underline that I talked about this circumstance when you asked me whether a double yellow card was right.
‘I replied in this way, it was impossible to play football but I understand that in football there is this kind of situations, I don’t like this and want to face teams who want to play football.
When asked if referees need to give Hazard more protection, Conte replied: ‘I think the referee… it’s right to always to make the best decision, for the players to have the respect of opponents and respect football because we play football.
‘First of all, I know during the game I know you can receive a kick, it’s normal, but the referee must pay great attention to respect the rules of football because football is a great sport.’
