Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, refused to comment on his altercation with Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Chelsea, during or after their 2-2 tie on Sunday.
After Kalidou Koulibaly’s first goal was cancelled out by Emile Hojberg’s equalizer for the Spurs, the two men almost exchanged punches.
Both coaches had to be separated after the game because Tuchel was clinging to Conte’s hand tightly and screaming.
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.
