Roman Abramovich has a reputation as a shrewd customer and Fichajes state he’s growing increasingly restless with Jose Mourinho at the helms, with Chelsea having just 11 points to their name after 9 Premier League matches.
The reports add the Russian owner sees Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola as the ideal replacement, which would add salt to the wounds of Mourinho’s departure due to the pair’s rivalry from their time managing Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Mourinho has been involved in a wealth of controversial incidents this season, publicly criticising his medical staff, launching scathing attacks on match day officials and criticising numerous members of his squad.
The situation at Chelsea could potentially become a widespread issue, with Eden Hazard already linked with an exit next summer and suggestions that the club are fed-up with the Portuguese manager.
Even our regulars at the bar are swiftly turning on Mourinho, just months after he landed them the Premier League club, as they believe his behaviour is tarring their side’s reputation.
Chelsea fans, should you sack Jose Mourinho? Let us know in the comments below!
