However, Conte believes the likes of Mourinho and Wenger are merely jealous of the Blues leading the title charge after 13 straight league wins. "That's good for us, to have a manager who is not just a boss, but also someone we can talk with, someone whose support we can count on in hard moments".
We're not entirely too sure what happened behind the scenes here, but it's safe to say some drama might have unfolded between Kiffin and head coach Nick Saban.

Bournemouth produced a stunning performance in the first hour with Charlie Daniels, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser efforts putting them on course for an unlikely three points. "Look I'm ready to play tomorrow again as long as we play against an opponent who has played today as well". If they're going to mount any sort of title challenge or even ensure they're in Champions League next year, they can't afford the kind of display they put on for 70 minutes against the Cherries.
That is the most important for the club, more than winning one title, believe me. When we are 2-0 up I am more aggressive. "Okay so I have to adapt and I have to understand there are special rules here in England". I don't want to spend all my time here working. Why am I here? I think of myself, speak with my staff and the people I trust, to convince myself whether my doubts are just insane moments'.
