Mourinho And Conte Escape FA Punishment


Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte will escape sanctions from the English FA over their increasing war of words.The English football governing body currently has no plans to intervene in the rift between Manchester United and Chelsea Managers. The FA has the power to call both Mourinho and Conte to order.

They can also call them for explanation on their recent verbal exchanges. They believe they will bring the row to an end soon. However, if the feud continues , the FA will review its stance. It is recalled that in 2005, the then FA chairman Geoff Thompson openly threatened to punish United and Arsenal unless both clubs end the long running verbal spat between Sir Alex Ferguson and  Arsene Wenger.
