Jose Mourinho’s criticism of Antonio Conte in the aftermath of Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat to Chelsea was justified, according to former Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque.
Reports suggest Mourinho accused the Blues boss of ‘humiliating’ him with his animated behaviour on the touchline throughout the encounter at Stamford Bridge.
The pair were captured exchanging words at the final whistle and Del Bosque, who masterminded Spain’s 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 wins, believes Mourinho has every right to feel aggrieved.
‘It did not seem like a wrong message from Mourinho to Conte,’ Del Bosque told AS.
‘Sometimes Conte has to be a little more considerate when he celebrates victories, really.
‘I was also hurt when we played against Italy at Euro 2016.
‘I’m not saying don’t express joy, there’s no need to be as dull as me, but express a moderate joy. It is not that I am a defender of Mourinho, but he had a point.’
