  • Jose Mourinho sacked by Chelsea and Guus Hiddink will take over as caretaker manager

     Jose Mourinho was sacked as Chelsea manager on Thursday afternoon after a dreadful run of results which has left his side stranded in 16th place in the Premier League table. Chelsea will now look to Guus Hiddink, as reported by Telegraph Sport on Wednesday, to replace the manager on a short-term basis.

    The next permanent Chelsea manager will likely be appointed next summer, with candidates including Diego Simeone, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti all in the frame. Mourinho's second reign in London was initially successful, with his Chelsea side winning the league last year, and the Portuguese further enhancing his reputation as Chelsea's best ever manager.

    But this season has been coloured by controversy, including the dismissal of club doctor Eva Carneiro, severe down-turns in form from key players including Cesc Fabregas and Branislav Ivanovic, and a series of surprising defeats to teams including Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, and Southampton. The final straw was a 2-1 defeat to league-leading Leicester City on Monday night, in which Eden Hazard was accused of exaggerating a hip injuryMourinho's future remains unclear, but one bookmaker makes a return to Real Madrid favorite for his next move, ahead of replacing Louis van Gaal at Manchester United. 

    "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.
