Chelsea FC owner, Roman Abramovich and the club’s members are holding talks over manager, Jose Mourinho’s future at the club. Top officials reportedly met for 9 hours yesterday and sources allege that he might be shown the exit door sooner than he thinks. The decision was prompted by the club’s 2-1 loss to Leicester on Monday. The current title holders have had an incredibly terrible season, sitting at the 16th position on EPL standings and unbelievably chilling in the relegation zone.
The Portuguese has failed to rescue the blues from murky waters and concerns over his future at the club have dominated discourse in football circles for several weeks. Mourinho who signed a new four-year contract in August, on Monday said he felt betrayed by some of his players.
To sack or not to sack?
Abramovich will have to part with between a whooping £10 million ($15 million, 13.7 million euros) and £40 million if he decides to terminate the ex Real Madirid coach’s appointment.
