Chelsea have finally decided to sack Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho is about to be sacked by Chelsea, according to reports. Mourinho was said to be facing a dismissal if his Blues side lost to Liverpool on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea lost the match 3-1, and now the Daily Mirror says the club are set to swing the axe and get rid of the Special One.
The paper adds that the only decision left to made is when Roman Abramovich will do it, with some sources suggesting it it’s likely to be before Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev.
Mourinho only signed a new contract in August but it includes a clause that says he will get £9.5millon – 12 months salary – if he is sacked by the club.
First Teamer Admit Rather Lose Than Win for Jose Mourinho
Fresh from their hugely disappointing 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at home yesterday which left them sitting 15th in the English Premier League, a member of the first-team squad would "rather lose than win" for Jose Mourinho, according to BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Garry Richardson.
If true, it’s an incredible report and one Mourinho and fans of the club definitely won’t want to read.
BBC 5Live presenter Garry Richardson said this morning:
Let me tell you what I know on the Chelsea story. My information comes from a Chelsea first team player. The information was actually passed to me by a football contact. I was told that Jose Mourinho’s relationship with many of his players is at rock bottom.
I was told they’re fed up with the way he’s been dealing with some of them. They’re fed up with his outbursts. I was told that his relationship particularly with Eden Hazard was under immense strain. Here’s a staggering quote. One player said recently, “I’d rather lose than win for him”.
Now that last quote may well have been said in the heat of the moment, but it perhaps gives an insight into the mood of some of the players.
It’s so far not been reported by BBC or any other major online sources, but it’s sure to dominate news over the next day or two as Jose Mourinho’s future at the club continues to be discussed.
