Recently sacked Chelsea Coach, Jose Mourinho reportedly made a comment that obviously didn’t go down well with the Chelsea board. Mourinho’s word after Chelsea’s defeat was ‘pay me and I will go’. His comments were taken seriously and Chelsea’s lawyers were put on notice.
After the loss to Westham, the manager went on to lose 5 five more games which has dragged them to the 16th position and just a point above relegation. The controversial Portuguese was eventually sacked yesterday after the board had earlier met to discuss his future. The sack puts a disastrous end to his second spell as Chelsea manager.
This represents his 3rd career sack. Mourinho has previously been sacked at Madrid in 2003 after ending the season without a trophy and was also sacked at Chelsea in 2007 after a series of bad showing, but never as worse as this. His sack was confirmed in a statement published by Chelsea.
The club said, ” Chelsea and Jose Mourinho have today parted company by mutual consent.
All at Chelsea thank Jose for his immense contribution since he returned as manager in the summer of 2013.”
Mourinho before his sack was reported to have fallen out with some of his players and openly complained of bad apples, in an interview with the BBC. Several reports suggested that the coach had serious problems with some of his key players, including Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa.
The manager confessed that he is been betrayed, after his latest loss to League leaders, Leicester. He said ” one of my best qualities is to read the game for my players and I feel like my work was betrayed”.
Mourinho’s sack comes just after seven months of winning the league title with virtually the same Chelsea team.
