“Mourinho seems to be wasting too much energy in picking fights with other managers,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“He doesn’t need to do this. It seemed obvious that Antonio Conte was the intended recipient when Mourinho moaned last week that some managers ‘cry and cry’ about fixtures.

“Why is Mourinho bothering to wind up Conte? He should be worried about Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, who are threatening to run away with the Premier League.
