Again, that's just false. Poch, Wenger, and even Mazzarri were playing 3 at the back well before Conte. Conte just made it popular again. 

Pretty sure Wenger only started playing the back 3 after Conte made it popular in England.

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho labels Southampton staff member an ‘idiot’ after Spurs beaten

https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/tottenham-jose-mourinho-southampton-coach-idiot-yellow-card-mike-dean-a9266866.html

Any lingering hope that Tottenham have hired the old, charming Jose Mourinho rather than the snarling, confrontational manager of recent years might have been extinguished on New Year’s Day as he stalked the touchline, got booked by referee Mike Dean and subsequently labelled a Southampton coach an “idiot”. 

Mourinho looked frustrated as he watched Spurs lose 1-0 at St Mary’s to a Danny Ings goal. Late in the game he marched into the opposition’s technical area to have words in the ear of a member of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s backroom staff, prompting a furious reaction from the Southampton bench. Dean came across and produced a yellow card, and Mourinho appeared to offer a conciliatory hand. 

But speaking after the game, Mourinho said: “I think the yellow card is fair because I was rude, but I was rude to an idiot.”
 
It has now been a year since Tottenham kept a clean sheet away from home in the Premier League, but Mourinho insisted he did not need to buy new defenders in order to resolve the problem. 
“It was quite a strange game,” he said. “We had no problems defensively. They didn’t create great problems. We see the bad result today which is the continuity of the last year. For 12 months, it has been very difficult to get results away from home. The work is not about buying, it is about working with the players on the pitch.”

Didn't take long for the real Mourinho to show up again, did it? At least we don't have to pretend he's a changed man anymore...
