Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea are currently struggling, we take a look at some reasons why the Portuguese shouldn’t be sacked.
He guarantees success
Jose Mourinho is a serial winner and has won trophies through out his career.
The Portuguese has won every league trophy available in every club he has managed. Jose Mourinho delievered Chelsea their Barclays Premier League title last season after the blues last won the title in 2010.
Jose have also won major cups and 2 Champions league titles. He is one of the few football managers with such an illustrious career filled with medals and trophies. Jose Guarantees trophies for any team he is managing, one poor season doesn’t make him a bad manager. It is claimed that Real Madrid’s president Fiorentino Perez want Mourinho back at Spain which shows the Portuguese is in high demand as his kind is rare. Therefore it may not be the wise decision if Chelsea let him leave.
No other suitable candidates
Sacking Jose Mourinho now will but Chelsea in a tight situation as there is lack of quality replacement for the Portuguese.
Chelsea have been linked with Pep Guardiola and Diego Simeone as replacement for Mourinho on long term basis. Guardiola is currently with Bayern Munich and the German club is pushing the Spaniard to sign a new contract. The German club is not ready to part with their manager for any reason and that is a difficult situation for Chelsea.
Diego Simeone will also not want to switch clubs mid season and even if Chelsea wants to get him next summer, the blues will need to pay over £15 million to buy out the Argentine’s contract after paying Mourinho £35 million to sack him, meaning Chelsea will pay about £50 million to change manager. A fee which the board might consider too high.
He deserves time for what he has done for Chelsea
Jose Mourinho’s achievements with Chelsea should allow him more time to turn things around. The Portuguese is regarded as the club’s best manager in history, delivering the club 3 league titles in the space of 5 years. Just about 4 months ago, the Portuguese won the Premier league title which the club hasn’t won since 2010.
The Portuguese might have his faults such as frequent war of words with staffs and FA but his record on the pitch shows he deserves more time to turn things around.
He is the Fans Favourite
The fans love him, the fans want him to stay. The fans have been showing their support for the manager even in struggling times, I think it will make more sense if the board also stand by the Portuguse and support him.
