Mourinho’s ego is huge and the opportunity to win a second trophy with United will be a major priority. If he can do this while at the same time dispatching Chelsea from the tournament, it will make the victory even sweeter.
Conte is enjoying success in his first year in England. While he is new to the league, he has accumulated an impressive trophy haul himself. He led Juventus to five Serie A crowns as well as winning the Champions League title with the Torino side.
Conte versus Mourinho will pit two of the bests in the game. This time it is Conte that has the upper hand.
