Jose Mourinho tricked into signing Antonio Conte shirt

The spat between Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte seems unlikely to abate any time soon, especially when Italian pranksters continue to fan the flames.

Alessandro Onnis and Stefano Corti, two comedians from the Le Iene show, posed as reporters and intercepted Mourinho outside the Lowry Hotel in Manchester.

The trio enjoyed a pleasant conversation before Onnis and Conti asked the Portuguese to sign their Manchester United shirt.

Mourinho was then asked to hold the shirt to camera, thus unfurling it to reveal Conte's name and number plastered across the back.

Thankfully, the United manager was just about able to see the funny side and laughed the whole ruse off before venturing back inside the hotel.

So simple, yet so effective.
