Chelsea have still not found a way out of their terrible predicament at the moment and the manager JOSE MOURINHO was last night on the brink of being sacked as Chelsea slipped even closer towards the relegation zone with a 1-0 defeat from the hands of Stoke City which left fans shocked and frustrated.
Mourinho was supported by the club management and owner recently but if situations don’t change very soon, this support might wane and sadly, the situation does not look ready to change and the manager might be on the way out.
With Mourinho tucked away in a local hotel sadly watching his team’s latest disaster which makes it seven Premier League defeats in twelve matches after being handed a one match stadium ban, his players failed to respond to the defeat and left losers again.
The Portuguese manager has also created the terrible record of losing three consecutive League matches during the Roman Abramovich reign and this is not Forgivable.
Sunday Express Sport has therefore been making claims that contingency plans are already in place if Mourinho is removed from the Chelsea manager role anytime soon.
They claim that there is a short list of three managers who would be invited to take over the Stamford Bridge manager role until the summer.
They are former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers who is a former youth team coach at Chelsea, Roberto Di Matteo, sacked by Abramovich despite winning the Champions League and another former boss Guus Hiddink.
They have also revealed that another ex-Chelsea employee Carlo Ancelotti has been considered but he doesn’t want to be a short term appointment.
Keeper Asmir Begovic admits that Mourinho’s future is out of the players’ hands as he said, “Jose Mourinho did the pre-match talk at the hotel and that was it. We are behind the manager. You can see that from our performance.”
Chelsea striker Diego Costa may also already be in trouble with the FA after being reported by a Stoke steward to the referee Anthony Taylor with the Britannia employee claiming he was stamped on by the Chelsea player as he attempted to collect the ball.
Stoke boss Mark Hughes whose side also knocked out Chelsea in the League Cup last month said, “It was a good day at the office. Chelsea are a good side but we asked questions that maybe others wouldn’t.”
It remains to be seen what will happen to Mourinho in the next couple of days.
