But surely the axe isn`t getting ready to fall on our Jose is it?

Although, following on from a trophy-less season, we`d be amazed if Chelsea Football Club were to dispense with the services of Jose Mourinho, it was interesting to listen to Jose Mourinho discuss the subject of job stability during his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to take on Cardiff in South Wales.

As entertaining as ever, this is what Jose had to say on the subject matter,

“In football now there must be something really special between a manager and club, or the manager must be really something special to be there for five, 10 years.”

“I`m not saying I`ll have that security to be here until the end of my contract or beyond.”

“I just try and prove I can do my job and the Chelsea job is different than in previous years.”

“It`s easy to analyse. The team that won the trophies was a team with a certain structure, not just tactically, but by personality point of view, and that team doesn`t exist anymore.”

“Chelsea need to build another team with some similarities to that one.”

“I don`t have security. Nobody has that security in football.”

“David Moyes signed a six-year contract at Manchester United but he doesn`t get to the end of his first season.”


I guess it`s the continually changing, but not always for the better, face of our sport.
