Chelsea FC of England have sacked their title-winning Portuguese coach, Jose Mourinho, after a seven-month reign, British media are reporting.
The Daily Mail and Goal.com report that the self-styled ‘Special One’ was sacked on Thursday following a woeful start to the 2015-2016 Premier League campaign.
Reports say Mourinho was dismissed at a meeting he had with the club’s management Thursday afternoon.
As earlier feared, Mourinho will not be paid £40m as compensation. But he would be paid until the end of this season. That amounts to about £12m.
Chelsea are now faced with a huge decision as owner, Roman Abramovich, has to find a capable replacement amid reports a former manager, Guus Hiddink, is being considered.
Chelsea are presently 16th on the log in the EPL.
