The Special one has faced the sack, yes he has! The news of Jose Mourinho’s exit from Chelsea was announced by BBC and Daily Mail some hours ago and it spread like wild fire. To some, it came as a shocker whilst the rival fans, especially Gooners, rejoiced this moment. The situation intensified when the official Twitter account of Chelsea confirmed the sacking.

It was harsh from the management to sack Mourinho as he was the greatest manager, Chelsea ever had. Jose made Chelsea taste glory and the man possessed great managerial skills too. Also, he wasn’t the only one to be blamed for Chelsea’s shambolic performance as the players too were awful in their game play. This was the 2nd time Jose was sacked by the club. Jose’s sacking creates gossips all over the world as to where would the man head next to. Real Madrid and Manchester United are two clubs which are very likely to appoint the Portuguese.
However, Jose’s sacking also gives rise to the chances of Manchester United’s manager, Louis van Gaal being shown the door, too. Under LvG, the team has been lousy and has lost all its attacking football skills. The game play has been rather defensive and that’s definitely what the Red Devils are known for. One more problem faced by the team is that the manager makes the players play out of their position leading to unsatisfactory results. His philosophy is turning to be a massive failure at the club. All this hints at a sacking. But the real question is, will be actually be sacked? Will it happen this season? Will it take place at the end of the season? Well, that’s a tough call.
There’s no doubt about LvG not being up to the par this season. The team has been grinding out results, somehow. But he has also managed to keep them in the top 4 of the league. Also, LvG isn’t wholly to be blamed as he has also been a victim of injuries. The number of players who have been sidelined due to injuries has been enormous. And there’s nothing he can do about it. Injuries cause hurdles in any team’s success rate and eventually lead to a down fall.
Considering LvG is just in his second season at the club, giving him more time to improve the team and make his philosophy succeed would be a sane decision. Sacking him at the end of this season looks highly unlikely. However if the Dutchman is thrown out, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti are two likely candidates for the position. Jose could head to Real Madrid and make way for Carlo at Old Trafford. This is Pep has been linked with Manchester City since a long time and him coming to United is not possible at the moment as the Red Devils too haven’t shown enough interest in the former Barcelona gaffer.
