Jose Mourinho is no longer coach of Chelsea. Just as expected, after a disastrous season and the fall of the current champion to the Premier league relegation zone, the club president Roman Abramovich for the the second time has sacked (after 2013), the Portuguese expert.
BBC writes that the Russian tycoon for this “divorce” will have to pay about 55 million euros and that as the potential successors he sees Pep Guardiola, Juande Ramos and Brendan Rodgers, while according to bookies, the number one option could be Guus Hiddink or Carlo Ancelotti.
Although he secured the next round of the Champions League with the last round home win over Porto FC , a desperate half-season in the Premier league and the fact that he’s in “fight” with almost the entire team, was the reason for Abramovich to look say no more.
Although Mourinho is the most successful coach in the history of the Blues with which he won three league titles, one FA Cup and three titles in the League Cup, Abramovich had to take this step because it was clear that the Special One has done an irreparable damage.
“This will really hurt Mourinho”, legendary English striker Alan Shearer believes.
“He tried everything, but he failed to wake up the team. He criticized players in public – failed. He tried to protect the players – did not work. Nothing he did wasn’t working. No one could have predicted this.”
“Mourinho won the Premier League six months ago – sacked.
Wenger has not won the Premier League for eleven years – still at Arsenal, “writes the British journalist Piers Morga
When he came to Chelsea for the first time Mourinho said that he’s special, and that’s how he was given the nickname Special One.
“He came and said that he’s the Special One, but he is not. The players let him go,” said the former Chelsea player Graham Roberts.
