Chelsea won the league title last season under Mourinho, but the Blues have struggled badly during the 2014-15 campaign. The London-based club boasts a lowly record of 4-3-9 and sits in 16th place, just one point above the relegation zone.

This was Mourinho’s second tenure in charge of Chelsea, having previously managed the club from 2004 to 2007.

Chelsea Football Club, has issued a statement on the sack of Jose Mourinho, noting that he will always be warmly welcomed back to Stamford Bridge

Read statement below:

Chelsea Football Club and Jose Mourinho have today parted company by mutual consent.

All at Chelsea thank Jose for his immense contribution since he returned as manager in the summer of 2013.

His three league titles, FA Cup, Community Shield and three League Cup wins over two spells make him the most successful manager in our 110-year history. But both Jose and the board agreed results have not been good enough this season and believe it is in the best interests of both parties to go our separate ways.

The club wishes to make clear Jose leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Chelsea. His legacy at Stamford Bridge and in England has long been guaranteed and he will always be warmly welcomed back to Stamford Bridge.

The club’s focus is now on ensuring our talented squad reaches its potential.

There will be no further comment until a new appointment is made.
