Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea have sacked their manager Jose Mourinho after worst start by the club in over two decades.
Man United legend Alex Ferguson claimed a week or so back that the Blues will be foolish (Telegraph) to sack Mourinho because he is one of the best managers, not just in the world, but of all time.
“He (Abramovich) has sacked so many coaches in the last 10 years that I am sure he has learned by it,”
“He has to trust and have confidence Jose can turn around. There is no point in sacking one of the best coaches of all time, he’s won the European Cup twice, he’s won the League in each country he’s managed in, he’s won the big trophies. It would be foolish to take that step to sack him. That would be bad management. It’s poor leadership, that.”
However, Chelsea have taken the foolish step yet again and Mourinho’s second spell with the Stamford Bridge club has come to an end.
It will be fair to say that Abramovich has never really shown that much patience before sacking a manager and in the end there was no other option with Chelsea lying only a single point behind the relegation zone after 16 games.
The team was in shambles even with top quality players in the squad and Jose’s departure was inevitable. Oulala have put together stats that show the stark contrast of their current predicament.
