Chelsea chiefs are reportedly unhappy over the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Everton.
According to the Mirror, Chelsea chief quizzed Mourinho on his decision to sell Lukaku as the club’s first choice striker Diego Costa struggles to score goals this season.
The striker has been in superb form for Everton since joining the Merseyside club for £28m in 2014 and the club chiefs have realised that selling the striker was a mistake.
However it was Mourinho that personally gave the go ahead for the striker to be sold and the Portuguese decision was used against him prior to his sacking, according to Neil Moxley in the Sunday people.
The report claimed that the board believes should Lukaku had remain at the club, he would have been able to push Diego Costa for the first team spot and displace the out of form Spaniard meaning the club wouldn’t have been in this precarious situation they are in at the moment.
Lukaku joined Chelsea from Anderlecht for £18m in 2011 and was sent on loan to Everton and West Brom where he excelled as the West London club prepared him to become the club’s first team striker but Mourinho chose to sell the 22 years old and brought in Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.
After selling Lukaku to Everton, Mourinho struggled to find a capable back up to Diego Costa with Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao failing to fill the gap.
Lukaku has scored 36 goals in all competitions since joining Everton 2 years ago while Costa has scored 25 goals in all competitions for Chelsea in the same period of time.
