Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will reportedly sack manager Jose Mourinho if he loses the fans in the coming weeks, according to the Daily Star.
The Special One is under heavy pressure after an abysmal start to the new season, with the club picking up just 11 points from their opening ten games.
With a poor 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last weekend following up from the midweek Capital One Cup defeat to Stoke, many believed that Mourinho’s time at Stamford Bridge could be at an end.
Despite signing a new deal in the summer things look bleak for the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager. The cost of sacking Mourinho would be massive, but with results failing to come, Abramovich could soon come to the end of his tether.
The Daily Star has reported that as long as he still has the backing of the fans, Mourinho’s job is safe, but if they turn against him Abramovich may be forced into a decision.
