The former Chelsea manager went over to Conte at the final whistle and appeared to berate him for pumping up the home fans.

Mourinho was caught on camera shouting in the Italian’s ear before storming off down the tunnel before Conte could even reply to the accusations.

Conte was riling the crowd after the third goal and was seen clapping along with them as they chanted towards the end of the game and the Man United boss was reportedly unhappy with his celebrations.

Reports in Italian media said Mourinho told Conte: "You don't celebrate like that at 4-0, you can do it at 1-0, otherwise it's humiliating for us."

And the self-proclaimed Special One insisted the conversation should be private, despite choosing to conduct it in front of 41,000 people and the Stamford Bridge press box.

"I speak to Conte, I don't speak to you (the media)," Mourinho said.

"It was me and Antonio and stays with me and him. Unless he wants to share."

Conte declined to do so.

"I've been a player too and I know how to behave," Conte told Sky Italia.

"I always show great respect for everyone, including Manchester United.

"There was no incident, it was just a normal thing to do. I wasn't mocking anyone, I wouldn't do that."
