Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in remarks made to Spanish newspaper Marca that 13 other managers have been mentioned as potential new managers at Chelsea. The comment points to a strained relationship between him and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.
Speculation had Mourinho heading to Real Madrid this summer who is under contract to Chelsea through 2010.”
“I don’t want my named linked with Madrid or with any other club because I want to stay with Chelsea,” says Mourinho.
“Iv’e got a contract until 2010 and I want to carry on. If I have to leave for some reason or because someone wants me to…that’s life in soccer.”
Hmmm I wonder who that someone is? And why Mourinho has been counting his potential replacements?
With Chelsea in the Champions League semi-finals after eliminating Valencia you would think his plate is full without having to keep a running countr.
Someone’s ego has been bruised here. Is it Mourinho or Abramovich?
