Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Chelsea after his side’s shock defeat against Leicester City on Monday.
According to Chelsea statement,
Chelsea Football Club and Jose Mourinho have today parted company by mutual consent.
All at Chelsea thank Jose for his immense contribution since he returned as manager in the summer of 2013.
His three league titles, FA Cup, Community Shield and three League Cup wins over two spells make him the most successful manager in our 110-year history.
But both Jose and the board agreed results have not been good enough this season and believe it is in the best interests of both parties to go our separate ways.
The statement further goes on to say,
“The club wishes to make clear Jose leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Chelsea.
“His legacy at Stamford Bridge and in England has long been guaranteed and he will always be warmly welcomed back to Stamford Bridge.
“The club’s focus is now on ensuring our talented squad reaches its potential.
“There will be no further comment until a new appointment is made.”
The sacking of the ‘Special one’ left several people in shock and Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce said,
“They must already have somebody lined up to have done it now.
“I’m sad to see Jose go because I got to know him quite well and he’s a great manager with great character. He’s a loss to the Premier League.
He will indeed be a great loss to the premier league.
