In a story posted on his Instagram account, Antonio Conte returned with irony to his altercation with Thomas Tuchel

The London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham was marked by the altercation between Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte. If the two teams are neutralized (2-2) on the ground, the image of the weekend in the Premier League will undoubtedly remain this stormy handshake at the final whistle between the two managers. On his Instagram account, the Spurs technician did not fail to add a layer.

In a story, Antonio Conte reacted to Thomas Tuchel’s run after the Blues’ second goal, scored by Reece James (77th). “Fortunately I didn’t see you… tripping you would have been well deserved,” quipped the Italian, with smileys to mark his irony. At this moment, Conte advanced headlong where the German was showing his joy.

“There is no problem”

In the furnace of Stamford Bridge (33°C at the end of the afternoon), the mercury had not stopped rising between the German and the Italian, from the first period. The first tensions appeared when Tuchel ironically applauded Conte just before half-time, very close to the Italian’s technical area.

After the match, however, the two coaches put the incident into perspective. 

“It’s not very important, If there’s a problem, it’s only between me and the other coach . If I’m exposed to aggressiveness, I become aggressive in my turn.”

Conte said at a press conference.

“There is no problem”,

“These are emotions, that’s how it is in football, there is no point in commenting and d make things worse now. It’s sport, it’s the Premier League and we love it, right?
