Jose Mourinho: War of words with Chelsea's Antonio Conte over for me

That dig clearly hurt with Conte and, on Friday, Mourinho mischievously said: "The first time he insulted me I had a response, a response that I know touched the point where he really feels hurt".

"What I will say to him is to continue to work for the team as you always do and the luck will come again, so I'm not anxious about him".

The two managers have seen temperatures soaring between them in recent past, with both of them taking shots at each other.

"I think he is with the doctor now, but it's OK, I do not think it was serious", he told the BBC. Sometimes it's other managers' fault.

"When I start [feuds] I take the responsibilities of that, and I've started [them] many times".

I said that for this club it is normal. "He's a great player and knows very well in my first season in Juventus we tried to buy him from Udinese and then he chose to go to Barcelona".

That pointed comment was perceived to be aimed at the animated Conte, who responded by claiming Mourinho must have "demenza senile" - senile dementia.

While Mourinho denied he meant Conte, the 54-year-old then spoke of the Italian's four-month ban for failing to report alleged match-fixing, which prompted the Italian to brand Mourinho a "little man".

With Conte's long-term future up in the air, the Mirror add that United might not rush into a deal.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blues have identified former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and Juventus coach Max Allegri as potential replacements for the Italian, who is said to be frustrated with life at Stamford Bridge.

The 54-year-old has been bothered by the shortage of supplies for operating on the left back position since his advent to Old Trafford. "We didn't suffer defensively and we tried to win the game but I think at the end a draw was fair".

The Bridge hasn't historically been a happy hunting ground for Leicester City (won just once since 1965), though Claude Puel can derive a lot of confidence from the Blues' shaky form.
