The Portuguese boss was sacked this afternoon after
club owner Roman Abramovich and board had series of
emergency meetings last night. Mourinho's last match in
charge was the disastrous 2-1 loss to Leicester city and
with rumours of player unrest in the media, the club
have acted and sacked him.
Abramovich could be forced to pay Mourinho more than
£40million after the Portuguese manager signed a four-
year deal this summer. Guus Hiddink could be lined up
as the next replacement.
Mourinho lost support within the Chelsea hierarchy after
his bust-up with former club doctor Eva Carneiro during
the 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day of the
Stars of last season’s campaign including Eden Hazard,
Nemanja Matic and Cesar Azpilicueta have been
criticized by their manager in front of their peers, leading
to splits in the camp.
This was Mourinho's second spell in charge of Chelsea
and he was sorely disappointed with his players after
Chelsea's 9th loss of the season to Leicester.
After the game,he told the press;
'Sometimes I find myself thinking last season I did an
amazing job, brought players to a level not their level. If
this is true I brought to such a level they couldn't keep

tell my players what they are,” Mourinho said. “So it it is
a big frustration to accept the goals because my work
was betrayed, if that is the right word.
“I worked four days in this match. I prepared everything
related to the opponent. I identify four movements where
they scored almost every their goals.
“My players got all that information in last three days,
you can ask them, they are honest guys who will tell you
it is true.
“But in the situations I identify, we concede the first and
second goal. The mistakes were there.”
Despite his decision to publicly criticise his players for
failing to stick to the game plan, Mourinho insisted he
was ready to fight on as manager.
“The only thing I can say is that I want to be (the
manager.)” Mourinho said. “I have no doubts and I think
that you know me well enough, six years here, that I am
not afraid of a big challenge.
“At this moment, it is a real big challenge and I want to
stay. I hope Mr Abramovich and the board want me to
“I know that the board wants the best for this club. I
would like the board to analyse the situation, the
budget, the balance of the club and what they were
With Chelsea now hovering just one point above the
relegation zone,the club's board decided to act.
