According to the Italian, that is why the Manchester United manager is still focused on events at Stamford Bridge two years after he was sacked.
Mourinho, who coached Chelsea two times, appeared to take a swipe at the Italian and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, for their antics in the technical area yesterday when he said he did not feel the need to behave like “a clown” on the touchline.
Asked about Mourinho’s comments during his [ress conference on Friday, the former Juventus coach used the Italian phrase “demenza senile” in relation to the Portuguese, which translates as senile dementia.
He said, “I think he has to see himself in the past — maybe he was speaking about himself in the past.
“Maybe, sometimes, I think that someone forgets what’s said in the past, which is his behaviour.
“Sometimes I think there is, I don’t know the name, but demenza senile… when you forget what you do in the past.
“There is a person that continues to look here. You understand? He went away, but he continued to look here.”
During the 2-2 draw at Emirate on Wednesday, Wenger accused Eden Hazard of diving to earn a penalty but Conte believes other decisions went the Gunners’ way and referred to previous meetings.
“I think if Arsene Wenger watched the game again, (he would) understand he was very lucky during the game with the referee’s decisions.
“Don’t forget, in the last few games (with Arsenal) we finished the game with 10 men, when they won the FA Cup, the Community Shield. I think the referee’s decision(s) were a bit strange.
“If I want I can talk about refereeing decisions for one month. But I don’t want to do this. I think we must have respect for referees’ decisions.
“I think Wenger has to accept the decisions. He’s an old coach, he has a lot of experience, he won a lot. He has to continue to do what he did in the past,” he told reporters.
