Watch: Antonio Conte presented with Manchester United shirt seemingly signed by Jose Mourinho as prankster hijacks Chelsea press conference

Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho; they're not exactly best buds, in case you've missed their regular back-and-forths throughout this season.

Some Italian pranksters have played on the relationship (or lack of) between the Chelsea and Manchester United managers at Conte's press conference to look ahead to his side's FA Cup clash with Hull City on Friday evening.

A cheeky chappy took the microphone and began by showing the Chelsea boss an Italian clip on his ipad. That seemed to amuse Conte, who give an, albeit bemused, laugh.

But things took a turn when he was presented with a Manchester United shirt, complete with his name on the back, that they claimed was signed by Mourinho.

Watch the exchange with Conte here. He looks as confused as I feel, in fairness:

A United shirt, according to this twitter picture, was genuinely autographed by Conte's United counterpart. It was last month that the comedians met Mourinho outside a Manchester hotel, where he signed the shirt without knowing of the name on the back.

We'll not expect to see that prankster back at a Chelsea presser anytime soon. According to twitter, by the way, he's from Italia 1 satirical show Le Iene.
