One of the biggest talking points after Chelsea’s win over Manchester United on Sunday was the fact that Antonio Conte didn’t shake hands with Jose Mourinho.
As the United boss waited by the entrance of the tunnel and shook hands with the Chelsea staff, Conte was busy celebrating with the fans and then his players which left Mourinho no choice but to go on his way.
The Independent report on how the Chelsea coach didn’t think it was important, which is a fairly weak argument as he could of just showed the usual respect and shook hands after the game is done.
Mourinho didn’t make a big deal of it and so neither really paid too much attention to the ‘incident’, but naturally it has resulted in quite the media storm since as it’s still a talking point a day later.
However, it would appear as though Conte wasn’t the only one who didn’t shake hands with Mourinho on Sunday, as the video below shows the Portuguese tactician greeting many of his former Chelsea players before the game as they came out of the tunnel.
Eden Hazard was either not paying attention or purposely kept his head down and didn’t share a moment with his former boss, and naturally a lot was made of it.
Was it a snub? Was it something much more innoncent? We’ll let you decide, but some of the fans below certainly see it one way…
