Jose Mourinho has aimed an apparent dig at Chelsea boss Antonio Conte’s latest comments.

Over the weekend Conte said he was hoping to avoid a “Mourinho season” at Chelsea next year following their title triumph.

Asked about the comments after Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Valerenga in Oslo, the Portuguese boss, who was sacked by Chelsea in December 2015 after winning the Premier League just seven months previously, said: “I could answer in many different ways but I am not going to lose my hair to speak about Antonio’s comments.”

After referring to Conte’s reported hair transplant he piled praise on his new £75million striker Romelu Lukaku, who got his third goal in six pre-season games at the Ullevaal Stadion.

“It’s nice [for Lukaku]. Strikers they like to score goals,” added Mourinho.

“It’s not important for me but it’s important for him, for his confidence, his self-esteem.

“We managers are many times happy with them even when they don’t score because of the way they participate. For them, scoring goals is always important.”
