Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has finally been sacked today, after weeks of speculation over his future.
The Portuguese coach had a mixed second spell at Chelsea, winning the Premier League title in 2014-15 but underachieving in the Champions League.
The wheels came off the bus in spectacular fashion this season, with Mourinho’s famously solid defence collapsing as the Blues lost nine times in just sixteen league games, leaving them one point above the relegation zone.
Rumours of player unrest have circulated since September, and despite reshuffling his first eleven, Mourinho proved unable to halt the slide.
Juande Ramos, Alan Pardew, and Guus Hiddink have been mooted as replacements in a short-term capacity, before Chelsea make a concerted effort to land one of their chief targets, Diego Simeone or Pep Guardiola, in the summer.
Did Mourinho deserve to go? Or should the board have stuck with him?
