|The 10 Reasons Why Chelsea Sack Jose Mourinhno, No. 10 Will Shock You by perkyendy(m): 12:53am On Dec 18, 2015|
1. Where are the points?
It might be obvious, but poor results are the number one reason to sack a manager.
Chelsea’s points tally from their opening 11 Premier League is their worst on record, with the club only picking up 11 points.
That’s even worse than their start to the 1992-93 and 1993-94 seasons, where they only managed to accumulate 13.
2. The defence is broken
Chelsea’s defence is leaking goals all over the shop.
Only Bournemouth, Norwich and Sunderland have let in more goals than the Blues in the Premier League this season.
Despite Mourinho dropping Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry and Gary Cahill in a bid to fix the backline, Chelsea are still without a solution to their defensive woes.
The Blues have let in 22 goals in just 11 league games, more than they conceded in the entirety of the 2004-05 title-winning season.
3. At war with The FA
Mourinho has been subjected to a one-match stadium ban and a £40,000 fine, as a result of his behaviour in the 2-1 loss to West Ham on October 24.
The former Real Madrid boss is currently appealing against a separate suspended stadium ban as a result of his post-match comments after a 3-1 loss to Southampton.
These two incidents are just two of many on Mourinho’s lengthy rap sheet during his time in West London.
4. Lost the dressing room
Talk is rife that Mourinho has lost the faith of members of the Chelsea dressing room.
It was claimed on BBC 5live earlier this week that one player has even gone as far as to say “I’d rather lose than win for Jose Mourinho.”
History shows that once a manager has lost a dressing room, it’s just a matter of time until the chairman wields the axe.
Just ask Brendan Rodgers.
5. Chelsea in court
Mourinho’s treatment of Eva Carneiro has seen both the club and the controversial Chelsea boss subjected to legal action.
Carneiro was Chelsea’s team doctor between 2009 and 2015, but left the club after being demoted by Mourinho after entering the field of play in Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Swansea.
Club physio Jon Fearn also entered the field of play to treat Eden Hazard, but was not demonised in the same way by Mourinho.
6. Boring, boring Chelsea
The Blues have scored just 16 goals in their 11 Premier League games this season.
At this stage last season, the Stamford Bridge outfit had already scored 28 times, but the West London club have been found wanting this season.
The reigning champions were the second-highest scorers in the Premier League last season.
Brazilian midfielder Willian is the club’s top scorer, with five goals in the current campaign. However, only two of those goals have come in the Premier League.
7. The curious case of Eden Hazard
The Belgian winger was the PFA Player of the Season last year, after being voted as the top performer by his fellow professionals.
However, so far this season, Hazard has scored just once in 16 games in all competitions, turning in a sequence of rotten performances that have seen him relegated to the bench.
Rumours of a big money move to Real Madrid and PSG were rife in the summer, with talk that the former Lille man may be looking for a way out of Stamford Bridge if Mourinho stays.
8. Roman’s riches will be wasted
If Mourinho’s last tenure at Chelsea taught us anything, it’s that he doesn’t recruit well under pressure.
In the weeks before leaving the club in 2007, the ex-Porto chief signed up the likes of Steve Sidwell, Claudio Pizarro, Tal Ben-Haim, Juliano Belletti and Florent Malouda.
While Malouda may have prospered to start with, the others failed to prove themselves as anything more than a panic buy and a waste of the wage budget.
It’d be wiser for Roman Abramovich to trust somebody else with the Chelsea cheque book this time round.
9. Jose doesn’t do long-term relationships
Mourinho has never lasted longer than three seasons at any of his previous clubs.
Even in his first spell at Chelsea, the Portuguese boss failed to make it to a fourth season.
Despite his professed love for the Blues, it’s looking inevitable that Mourinho’s relationship with the club is little more than a short-term love affair.
Chelsea need to take a long-term approach, and Mourinho has proven himself not to be the man to provide sustained stability and success.
10. He’s not ‘The Special One’ anymore
Just like in Italy and Spain, the press have grown tired of his antics and frosty attitude, with Mourinho’s inability to handle criticism in the media only continuing to stir the pot.
Besides, people seem to prefer ‘The Normal One’ these days.
Even the general public don’t love Mourinho anymore.
It’s fair to say the Chelsea boss was a media darling when he returned to the club in 2013.
His quick wit, confidence and outlandish statements previously grabbed the headlines, but now Mourinho is seen as a tedious irritant.

Got lot of guys who love this man very much, its act of building confidence in team was what attracted me to Chelsea.
Most of the reasons you gave are spot on and no 8 just confirms my personal opinion of his management style.
