Chelsea FC of England have sacked their title-winning Portuguese coach, Jose Mourinho, after a seven-month reign, British media are reporting.
The Daily Mail and Goal.com report that the self-styled ‘Special One’
was sacked on Thursday following a woeful start to the 2015-2016
Premier League campaign.
Reports say Mourinho was dismissed at a meeting he had with the club’s management Thursday afternoon.
As earlier feared, Mourinho will not be paid £40m as compensation.
But he would be paid until the end of this season. That amounts to about
Chelsea are now faced with a huge decision as owner, Roman
Abramovich, has to find a capable replacement amid reports a former
manager, Guus Hiddink, is being considered.
Chelsea are presently 16th on the log in the EPL.
