Chelsea part ways with coach Jose Mourinho

English champions Chelsea have parted company with their coach Jose Mourinho by mutual consent, the football club confirmed on Thursday. His departure comes seven months after he led them to the Premier League title. It was the Portuguese coach’s second spell at the club, taking charge in June 2013. He previously was at the helm from 2004-07.

“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 said in a statement.

Chelsea won the Premier League and the League Cup last season, but have lost nine of their 16 league games so far and are 16th in the table, one point above the relegation places. “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.
