Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has reignited his fight with Antonio Conte by blaming him for interfering with Christian Eriksen's potential transfer to Serie A club Inter Milan. According to reports, Tottenham are ready to let Eriksen sign for Inter, with the 27-year-old midfielder refusing to sign a new contract that expires in the month of June.

Mourinho not happy about the rumours

According to reports, Mourinho is not happy about hearing the rumours that Inter is confident of securing the services of the Danish footballer, with a firm belief that Conte is far from signing Eriksen. Mourinho said that Conte has broken an unsaid managerial code by publicly speaking about a player of a different club.

Responding to a question, the Portuguese said that it was Conte who was talking publicly talking about Eriksen, adding that he was very confident about the midfielder coming to San Siro. Mourinho said that managers should not publicly talk about players from other teams until they are part of their squad. He took the example of Tottenham signing Gedson from Benefica that he did not talk about the player till the time Gedson had not officially signed for the club.

According to reports, Inter Milan's sporting director, Piero Ausilio has acknowledged potential transfer targets Christian Eriksen and Olivier Giroud, adding that the club is confident about the way they work and not only with respect to these two players.
