What started as a has an enviable spell for Jose Mourinho on his return two seasons ago is capitulating into the worse period in the career of the Portuguese gaffer. Upon Mourinho tactical prowess that saw Chelsea won a double last season, he was rewarded by a contract extension to keep in London until 2019. Alas, he certainly might not see out the contract.
Even with the current downward descent of the club due to on-pitch failures, Mourinho deluded by his pride said even if he’s sacked, he’ll remain the best coach in the history of Chelsea. subsequently though, the Board of Chelsea publicly backed Mourinho and reinstated their support for him.
However, there is the school of thought that the Special One as he thinks he is, will be shown the exit door before Chelsea exits the Premier League for the Championship. Former Liverpool midfielder, Dietmar Hamman also thinks in our way.
Soon after the international break, the Blues got the better of Aston Villa and subsequently earned a draw in the Champions League against Dynamo Kiev and was believed that the Blues were returning to winning ways but they proved that belief wrong after a terrible London derby against West Ham that saw Matic and two of his coaches sent off.
Meanwhile, Hamman believes Mourinho’s attitude is the key to their problems and he is in doubt if the Portuguese can turn the tide around. He was fined £50,000 and handed a one match stadium ban for talking recklessly about the referee that officiated Chelsea vs Southampton and subsequently eloped the press after the Hammers hammered them.
The former Liverpool man believes Mourinho is indirectly “begging for the sack” and he further stated that:
“If he wants to keep his job until the end of the season you’ve got to see a different Chelsea over the next few months. Can I see it? I’m not too sure, I don’t think they can. I’ll be stunned if he’s there by the end of the season.”
Chelsea are among the worse team this season in term of defending, they have conceded 19 goals in 10 matches and are currently sitting in 15th position on the League table.
