Stefano Corti and Alessandro Onnis, from the Italian satirical television show Le Iene, were earlier able to trick Mourinho into signing a red Manchester United replica shirt with Antonio Conte and #1 printed on the back.

It quickly became clear, however, that something was amiss as Conte stared with a frozen smile at the camera mounted on top of the device, and the man then produced a signed United shirt to his countryman as what he claimed was a gift from his bitter rival. Today, Corti presented it to Conte along with a video message on a tablet. A present for you from your brand new friend, Jose Mourinho. "You're the love of my life! ❤️". Don't forget for a lot of time we tried to play with Hazard as a No.9!' It is signed by Jose Mourinho. "Long live friendship.shall I leave it for you?" He could hardly be described as bemused either, and his responded to Corti: "No, you can take it with you".

Steve Atkins, Chelsea's head of communications, swiftly intervened to ask the man to sit down and once the cameras were switched off, he was escorted off the training ground.

Antonio Conte revealed that he is confident Alvaro Morata will be fit to face Barcelona, adding that he plans to give the Spain global more minutes to regain his sharpness in the FA Cup fifth-round tie against Hull City on Friday at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho had signed it last month, unaware it featured Conte's name, when approached by comedians from the same programme in Manchester.

He was re-elected to the House of Representatives from Jhapa electorate no 2 in 1999. They also agreed to unify their parties before forming the government.

Conte had a little laugh at the message, but said he had "nothing" to say.

"Chelsea is a big club, a club that has given me the opportunity to play as a starter, to grow even more". Aside from the nature of the stunt, questions in other languages are not permitted during Cobham press conferences.

Morata's return does give the Chelsea coach two genuine senior strikers to pick from again as Olivier Giroud earned praise for a battling performance in 60 minutes on the pitch against West Brom.
