Spurs Boss Antonio Conte Sends Late Night Message to Thomas Tuchel After Heated Fight

  • Conte and Tuchel were locked in a heated exchange which nearly came to blows during and after Sunday's keenly-contested stalemate at Stamford Bridge
  • Both managers will miss their respective Premier League games after referee Anthony Taylor showed the duo red cards for their involvement in the exchange

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte continued his tirade with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel on social media albeit jokingly.

Conte and Tuchel clashed in a heated argument following a pulsating London derby staged at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, August 14.

The two managers first faced off after Hojberg's equalizer, which Tuchel felt it shouldn't have stood due to the purported foul on Kai Havertz in the build-up to the goal.

Then, at full-time, they clashed again after the customary handshake. Tuchel kept hold of Conte's hand when the Italian didn't look him in the eye, with the pair needing to be separated.

But in between the two incidents was a moment Tuchel channelled his inner Jose Mourinho when he went gung-ho after Reece James restored Chelsea's lead with the German tactician sprinting down the touchline, bypassing Conte.

The Spurs gaffer refused to answer questions on the rift after the match, although he has since taken to Instagram to express his thoughts.

"Lucky I didn't see you... making you trip over would have been well deserved," wrote Conte, accompanied by some laughing emojis.

Both managers received a red card for their involvement in the heated clash after the end of the game, with the pair likely to miss their respective next games.
