EPL: Fight between Tuchel and I not important – Conte

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, refused to speak on his clash with his Chelsea counterpart, Thomas Tuchel, during and after their 2-2 draw on Sunday.

The two men nearly came to blows after Emile Hojberg equalized for Spurs, cancelling out Kalidou Koulibaly’s opener.

After the game, Tuchel held onto Conte’s hand firmly and muttered swear words, with both managers needing to be separated.

When he faced the media, Conte chose to reflect on the draw at Stamford Bridge.

“In my opinion, it is better to talk about the game. The game was an exciting game, a difficult game for both teams. We want to be competitive in every game. Chelsea showed us today how to be a really, really good team but we did better than last season.

“I don’t want to comment as it’s not the most important thing. If there is a problem, it’s not between me and him, it’s for the others.

“We are here to speak about football, not what happened between the coaches,” Conte said.
