Some certainly won’t be surprised to see Chelsea manager Jose Mourunho given his marching orders today in London.
Less than an hour ago news began to circulate around social media that the Portuguese man was to depart from the club just seven months after he led them to the Premier League title. Many say you should never return to a club you have previously managed and I’m sure Mourinho wishes he had taken that advice back in June 2013 when the news of his return echoed round Stamford Bridge.
Just last season Chelsea finished eight points clear and also won the League Cup. This season things have been a disaster for Mourinho and his men losing nine of their 16 league games and sitting in 16th place in the league table.
Monday saw more heartache for Mourinho as his side lost 2-1 to league leaders Leicester City, in his post match interview he made it clear how poor his players were on the field and many suspected the end was near.
It’s not yet known if a replacement has been approached already from club owner Roman Abramovich but that won’t stop the speculation, with names like Pep Guardiola, Guus Hiddink and Juande Ramos having all been mentioned as possible successors.
