sport news Antonio Conte's most explosive moments after slamming Mikel Arteta for ... trends now

Antonio Conte brings bundles of passion to the sidelines and is not afraid to let people know what he feels about them. 

During his managerial career he has had spats with players, referees, opposition managers, chairmen and even took out his frustrations on his own members of staff. 

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was the latest to be on the end of a spiky Conte, with the Tottenham manager laying into his opposite number after their 3-0 victory on Thursday night.

During the match, Cedric Soares gave away a penalty for a foul on Son Heung-min for the opener, and then a second yellow card was shown to Rob Holding after he seemed to push his elbow in to the face of the South Korean international.

An enraged Arteta refused to talk as he feared a suspension, adding that the 'beautiful game had been destroyed'. 

Spurs manager Conte was quick to hit back. The Italian said: 'Mikel Arteta is doing a really good job but I listened to him complain a lot. I think he has to be focused more on his team and not complaining.

'This is my advice. If he wants to take my advice it's up to him. I don't care. In six months I have listened to him complaining a lot. It's not good.'

Sportsmail takes a look at Conte's most explosive moments throughout his managerial career.  

Tirade at his own coach

Angelo Alessio felt the wrath of Conte when he was assistant manager at Stamford Bridge during Chelsea's 3-1 victory over Arsenal in February 2017.

The incident happened shortly before half-time when Gabriel Paulista forced a save from Thibaut Courtois with a free header from an Arsenal short corner.

Conte grabbed and shouted his assistant, pulling him off his chair and sending him down the touchline to relay a message to the team.  

Chelsea ultimately won the match 3-1, as Conte celebrated one of the goals by falling into the arms of front row supporters. 

Conte described Alessio as his 'most regular victim' after the match.

He told Sky Sports Italia: 'Angelo is my right-hand man and also, if you will, my most regular 'victim' because he is the closest man to me, the one I have the most direct relationship with.

'Basically, what happened is that before the game, in training, we had clearly prepared a number of situations arising from corners and so forth, and on that occasion Arsenal had a sixth man in the box, and that meant that [Victor] Moses, who was originally meant to be on the edge of the area, had to go mark the sixth man.

'In such cases, [N'Golo] Kante needs to move back from his usual position further forward next to Costa, to take Moses' place further back, so as not to leave that part of the box uncovered. They failed to do that, and I got angry [with Angelo].'

Asked jokingly by presenter and former Juventus teammate Paolo Di Canio if he would have done the same to fiery striker Diego Costa, Conte added: 'Look, Paolo, in such moments I am capable of killing anybody.'

Conte v Mourinho 2016-17

Antonio Conte's most famous rival is Jose Mourinho with the pair involved in a number of spats, particularly when the Italian was at Chelsea, and Mourinho at Manchester United. 

It started in October 2016 when Chelsea won 4-0 at Stamford Bridge and Conte riled up his opposite number by waving his arms to encourage the home fans to raise the volume in the final minutes. Mourinho was said to have told Conte: 'You don't celebrate like that a 4-0. You can at 1-0, otherwise it's humiliating for us.'

Red mist then descended during their FA Cup quarter-final tie March 2017, when Conte was furious at the treatment of his players.

Eden Hazard was targeted by Ander Herrera who was sent off with two bookable offences on the Belgian, while Conte then exploded when Marcos Alonso was fouled by Antonio Valencia.

A furious Conte approached Mourinho on the touchline, shouting at the United manager and having to be restrained by the fourth official.  

The pair exchanged jibes throughout the season which continued into the summer.

After winning the Premier League title, Conte warned his side against having 'the Mourinho season' in reference to 2015-16 when Chelsea had gone from winning the title the year before to finishing tenth.

The United manager in response to the remarks referred to rumours that Conte had artificially replaced his hair.

He said: 'I could answer in so many different ways but I'm not going to lose my hair to speak about Antonio Conte.' 

Suggesting Mourinho suffers from 'senile dementia' 

The rivalry with Mourinho continued into the 2017-18 season, starting in October when the United manager said: 'I never speak about injuries. Other managers, they cry, they cry, they cry when a player is injured.

'I don't cry; I think the way to do it is ignore the players who are injured and focus on the players that are available. If I want to moan and cry like the others, I can cry for the next five minutes. But I don't.'

Conte told his predecessor to mind his own business when the subject was raised to him later that night.

'I think he has to think about his team and start looking at himself, not others. I think that, a lot of times, Mourinho [likes to concentrate on] what is happening at Chelsea. A lot of times, also last season. [He has] to think about his team.'

This continued into January when Mourinho suggested that rival managers behaved like 'clowns' on the touchline.

'Because I don't behave as a clown on the touchline, it means that I lost my passion,' he said.

'I prefer to behave the way I am doing it, much more mature, better for my team and myself, I don't think you have to behave like a crazy guy on the touchline to have that passion.'
