The altercation continued: Antonio Conte clashed with Chelsea star in tunnel after the game

    Antonio Conte got into an altercation with Chelsea player Mateo Kovacic after the resultant 2-2 draw.

    The London derby gave us a lot of emotions. Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte quarreled twice during the match, and a heated handshake led to the suspension of both managers.

    It did not end there… after the match it was reported that the conflict was not over. This time, the Italian specialist got into an altercation with Chelsea midfielder Kovacic.

    According to reports, Conte pounced on the Croatian, who was off the field, in the tunnel, and arguments over the match began.

    After the game, both coaches gave their comments, explaining their actions.

    ‘Come on guys, it’s between two competitors and nothing bad happened. It’s emotional, football. We don’t need to heat it up. You have emotional coaches on the touchline and that’s it.’ — Tuchel said.

    Conte added: ‘My opinion is it’s better to talk about the game. It was a difficult game for both teams, and we try in every game to be competitive. I don’t want to comment on the situation, this is not the most important thing. If there’s a problem, it’s between me and him.
