[SIZE=6]Jose Mourinho sacked as Chelsea manager[/SIZE]

Chelsea have sacked manager Jose Mourinho seven months after he led them to the Premier League title.

The 52-year-old Portuguese had been in his second spell at the club,taking charge in June 2013.

Chelsea finished eight points clear last season and also won the League Cup, but have endured a terrible start to their defence, losing nine of their 16 league games so far.

Mourinho’s final match was Monday’s 2-1 defeat at leaders Leicester City.

Pep Guardiola, Guus Hiddink, Brendan Rodgers and Juande Ramos have all been touted as possible successors.

Mourinho: ‘The Unhappy One’

He leaves with Chelsea just a point off the relegation zone and 20 points behind Leicester.

Champions League qualification via one of the top four spots in the Premier League looks almost impossible.

However, the Blues are through to the last 16 of European football’s biggest club competition, where they will face French champions Paris St-Germain in February and March.

Mourinho only signed a new four-year contract on 7 August and is Chelsea’s most successful manager.

He won three Premier League titles, two of those in his first spell between 2004 and 2007.

The Portuguese has also won the FA Cup, in 2007, and the League Cup three times - in 2005, 2007 and 2015.

Jose Mourinho watches on as doctor Eva Carneiro runs onto the pitch at the Swansea game in August

It has not only gone wrong in the Premier League for Mourinho, he has also had his issues off the pitch.

A 2-2 draw with Swansea on 8 August was overshadowed by a fallout with his medical team, in particular club doctor Eva Carneiro.

Carneiro had her role downgraded after Mourinho said his medical staff were “naive” for running onto the pitch to treat attacking midfielder Eden Hazard.

She eventually left on 22 September and is now taking legal action against Mourinho and the Blues.

Mourinho also received a suspended stadium ban and £50,000 fine forclaiming referees were “afraid” to award his team penalties in a 3-1 home loss to Southampton in October.

He subsequently had to serve a one-match stadium ban and pay a £40,000 fine for his behaviour during a 2-1 defeat by West Ham, when he spoke to referee Jon Moss at half-time.

Jose Mourinho took charge of Chelsea for a second time in 2013

It is unlikely he will be out of management for long, given his record of success at Chelsea and other top European clubs.

He guided Porto and Inter Milan to Champions League glory in 2004 and 2010 respectively, then led Real Madrid to the Spanish La Liga title in 2012.

At 52, he is still some way from retirement age, but he has expressed a wish to coach the English and Portuguese national sides at some stage in his career.

In fact, he claimed he turned down the chance to become England boss when Steve McClaren was sacked in 2007.

Mourinho has a proven track record of bringing success over the short-term but doubts will remain over his ability to build a dynasty.

Will that make his candidature less appealing to the kind of club he is used to managing, such as German giants Bayern Munich, rising French stars Paris St-Germain or Premier League duo Manchester United or Manchester City?

Mourinho celebrates another Premier League title last season

The Blues may be struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table, but they are still in the Champions League and both domestic cups, while achieving European qualification is not impossible.

The key for any new manager is improving the morale of a talented squad that has underachieved this season.

Players such as Hazard, Diego Costa, Willian, and Oscar were key to Chelsea winning the league title but performances have fallen well below the heights they reached last year.

After the 2-1 defeat by Leicester Mourinho said he felt his “work was betrayed” by his players, and midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said it is time for everyone to step up.

“If you are a big player and paid like a big player, you must play like a big player and behave like a big player,” said the Spain international.

I am saddened. Absolutely gutted :frowning:

Bye Maureen.
But I liked the guy’s arrogant and cocky attitude.
I have always watched his press conferences with much amusement and he spared no one, the press, the refs, other managers, other clubs, players and club owners.



good riddance, his mouth made him enough haters

Not true

too bad… I will miss the guy…he brought a unique sense of humour and drama to the game…

An old woman is always uneasy whenever dry bones are mentioned. African Proverb.

sad to see him leave but i still believe the players are to blame

Happy to see him leave…alikuwa na madharau sana

Like this one here when taking over at Chelsea for the first time in 2004: “I have top players and, I’m sorry, we have a top manager. Please do not call me arrogant because what I say is true. I’m European champion, I’m not one out of the bottle, I think I’m a special one.”

Haka ni kamchawi hakawezi futwa.

Carneiro was a true Yoko Ono in all this. Hiyo nyoka na UK media ndio imeharibu hiyo team. The PL loses more with Mourinho’s sacking. Once LvG goes you’ll be left with pussies like Wenger who can’t speak up for himself or his players and Klopp who celebrates a draw at home like its a treble. Mourinho anatembea out of the Bridge with a 40M payoff ka ile paka iko kwa avatar ya @Mathaais

Kuna mtu aliluliza mbona Superman huvaa ngotha iko na belt juu ya biker na hakuna mtu huzua.

Boss, he’s walking away with 6.3 billion Kenya money. I expect Raila to call a press conference and denounce this blatant corruption.

if you are going to be arrogant you shld back it . Monday he was saying he feels betrayed by the team that might have sealed his fate.

But was he right to say so? Mos definitely…

You are deluded man, na si kwa ubaya.

Funny thing is I aint even a Chelsea fan. Hiyo media ni nuks. Saw some piece yesterday on Mail UK ati accepting pundits were wrong to rate Leicester as relegation material. That Carneiro stori wrecked Mou’s team cz it was blown aout of proportion. In my opinion.
