Jose Mourinho sacked by Chelsea
Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Chelsea for a second time, just seven months after winning the Premier League.
The 52-year-old has been dismissed with Chelsea 16th in the division and three points above the relegation zone following a dismal run of nine defeats in 16 games.
Sky sources understand that Mourinho was called to the training ground at Cobham to a meeting with chairman Bruce Buck and director Eugene Tenenbaum earlier on Thursday afternoon, which lasted no longer than 10 minutes.
And at 2pm his second spell as Chelsea manager was brought to an end after 30 months and 136 games, despite delivering his third and the club’s fourth Premier League title by an eight-point margin in May.
