Jose Mourinho’s reign as Chelsea boss may be coming to an end this week, should Chelsea failed to qualify for the knock-out stage of the prestigious Champions’ League game. This is the word of former Chelsea’s player and coach Ray Wilkins.
Pressure continues to mount on Mourinho after his team had struggled to impress this season. The EPL defending champions are currently on 14th position on the EPL table with 17 points behind league leader Leicester City.
speaking to BeIN Sports, Wilkins reckons that a defeat to FC Porto could end Mourinho’s spell with the Blues.
“Any other manager would have gone, there are no two ways about it,” said Wilkins.
“Mourinho is only still there, purely and simply, for what he’s done in the past.
“The big thing for Mourinho is Europe, he loves the European competition and [Roman] Abramovich just adores it, so if they lose against Porto, then he could be on his way.
“They are away at Leicester next week so if something is going to happen, it will happen, I would have thought, after this week. I don’t think it will happen this week.”
However, Mourinho had revealed today during his pre-match briefing against FC Porto tomorrow that he still has the backing of Roman Abramovich
