No one could have imagined Jose Mourinho and Chelsea in the situation they are right now with just 8 points and 15th position in the league table. No one is saying it just now, but Jose Mourinho is beginning to feel the pressure of delivering results at Stamford Bridge and avoid continuous slip-ups in the league.
To make the matters worse, Mourinho has yet again found himself at the heart of controversies and bringing bad name to the club he is in charge. His tussle with Chelsea’s physio Eva Carneiro was uncalled for as she was doing her job and Mourinho vented out his team’s frustration on her. Since then, Eva has left the club and taken legal action against Chelsea and Mourinho.
These were one of the reasons why Chelsea parted ways with Jose in their first stint as he was always inviting troubles for himself and the club he was managing. This season, Jose has gone on to make controversial claims about the officials and his long-term foe Arsene Wenger.
All of this is seen as Mourinho’s tact to deviate attention from his players and their performances, however, these tact will only be function until his team keeps winning matches. One major difference from last season is that Chelsea have failed to put two wins in a row so far, while Mourinho has continued to vent out his anger and frustration in front of the media.
One cannot ignore the fact that, it is only a matter of time before Roman Abramovich decided to have a word with Mourinho and asks to get things back on track. Mourinho has claimed to create a legacy at Stamford Bridge in his second spell, but time may well be running out on him and he must realize that this will be his last chance at Chelsea.
Knowing Abramovich, he will never take the risk of recalling Jose in near future if he decides to part ways with the Portuguese this season. As vague as it might sound, but if Mourinho does not get hold of things at Stamford Bridge, he will be shown the door and it will never be opened for him. It is high time that Mourinho lives up to his tag of being the Special One
