The Decline Of Jose Mourinho

When Jose Mourinho first came to manage Chelsea in the Premier League he was a breath of fresh air but it is a very different Jose who has come back this time.
The self-proclaimed 'Special One' hasn't been quite so special this season as his team languishes in the bottom half of the league table and their title defence almost certainly over before the end of September.
Rather than stick his hands up and accept the blame for the defeats his team have suffered this term, he has blamed everyone and everything from the ball boys to the physio who has now walked out of Chelsea after a bizarre and outlandish attack on her from the Chelsea manager.
Dr Eva Carneiro has not appeared on the first-team bench since the opening day draw against Swansea, where she was involved in a row with the manager after rushing onto the pitch to treat Eden Hazard after he requested treatment late in the game.
Mourinho claimed that by the Physio going onto the pitch, Hazards would then have to leave the pitch as per the rules before he could come back on again and as they were already down to ten men, would leave them short on the pitch.
Rather than blame Hazard for requesting the treatment, Mourinho aimed his anger at the Physio who claimed that he used abusive and sexist language towards her and is consulting employment lawyers.
While Mourinho has an excellent CV and is undeniably a successful manager albeit at massive clubs with huge transfer budgets, he doesn't seem a particularly nice character and as he continues to lose the plot, the odds on him becoming the former Chelsea manager by the end of the season grow.
While we missed him when he left previously, this time around most of us will only miss watching his ludicrous excuses and bizarre behaviour when his team lose yet again but i hope the owner isn't too quick to fire him because while his teams have always been boring to watch, it is enjoyable watching them being beaten while being boring.
