Mourinho has, on a number of occasions taken aim at Conte, leading the Italian to claim the Portuguese is ‘obsessed’ with his former club.
However, after a shock 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield on Saturday, and Guardiola’s side eased past Burnley with a 3-0 win,. Redknapp thinks Mourinho needs to reassess his priorities.
“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.
“After enjoying an excellent start, Mourinho has given himself an unnecessary problem.”
Jose Mourinho’s men face Swansea in the League Cup on Tuesday night and will welcome Tottenham at Old Trafford at the weekend.
