Chelsea CONCLUDE Plan To SACK Jose Mourinho Regardless Of Porto Clash Outcome

Jose Mourinho2Mourinho’s fate could be decided before Friday as confirmed reports say talks within Stamford Bridge walls are pointing to a possible exit for the Portuguese handler regardless of whether he beats Porto or not. Chelsea face Portuguese giants, Porto in the last Champions League encounter and a loss will see them fail to qualify for the next rounds of the European games.

The Blues lost their last League game against Bournemouth on Saturday, earning them their 8th defeat in 15 games, and condemning them to 14th place on the log, 3 points above relegation zone.

With Roman Abramovich present at the weekend game, it makes it all count against Mourinho and the debate going on at the Bridge right now as regards the next game, a crucial one, is if to give him the chance for the Porto game or to make that change now.

The Russian owner had earlier offered his full support for Jose when he came under fire due to his side’s performances, but the last game could have served as the last straw that breaks the camel’s back. With a number of replacements already lined up, so many factors making these options unavailable at the moment could be hindering the management from handing him the sack yet.

However, sticking with Mourinho for the long-term will see the club deviate from their recent philosophy of handing out the sack to managers with such poor results. Former sacked-handlers were shown the exit with less disastrous results, and keeping Mourinho up till now has surprised many.

The fans continue to support the 52 year-old, and he is already a legend at the club due to his achievements on both of his time at the dug out, but failure to turn things around and get them to a safe spot where a top 4 finish is feasible will see the club with no choice than to let him go despite his current contract still to expire in 2019.
