Begovic reveals he tried not to laugh during Conte spat with Mourinho

Chelsea back-up goalkeeper Asmir Begovic spoke about last F.A. Cup clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, where Antonio Conte and former Blues’ boss José Mourinho had an altercation following a late tackle of Antonio Valencia on Marcos Alonso.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina star told The Express: “It was a huge occasion, a huge game at the Bridge. As disappointed as I was at not playing in the game, what I did have was first row seats to what was some amusing sideline antics,

“The two managers going at it, yelling at each other, it was a very intense match. It was really unnecessary, but it was so funny, because I was trying so hard not to laugh”.

“Every time the camera was on them, we were thinking ‘keep a straight face, keep a straight face, don’t laugh at these guys”.

Then Begovic added: “It wasn’t unprofessional, but I thought it was a little bit too much. They were really into it, it was a big deal and I don’t think they like each other very much.”
