Antonio Conte insists the bad blood between himself and Jose Mourinho has been laid to rest as he prepares to meet the rival manager once again on Sunday. 

The managers were engaged in a vicious feud across the Italian’s first year-and-a-half in England but Mourinho revealed they buried the hatchet after Chelsea’s visit to Old Trafford in February. 

And Conte agrees there is no longer an issue between the two, saying he enjoys a ‘normal’ relationship with his Manchester United counterpart.

‘It is not important what happened,’ Conte said at his pre-FA Cup final press conference before Sunday’s clash at Wembley. 

‘There is a normal relationship between me and him and tomorrow I will shake his hand and we will think about the game.’

Sunday could be Conte’s final game in charge of Chelsea amid mounting speculation surrounding his future at Stamford Bridge. 

And the 48-year-old acknowledged his situation with a light-hearted moment at the press conference as he paused after saying it would be his ‘last match’ before continuing his sentence.  

‘I can tell for sure, this will be my last match… in this season,’ Conte said, causing laughter among the journalists in Chelsea’s media room at Cobham.
