The inevitable – Mourinho axed
English football took a turn for the better this morning when Jose Mourinho, having twice been dismissed by Chelsea, was sacked by Manchester United.
They are sixth in the Premier League table but some considerable distance behind the top five. They were seriously outplayed by fierce rivals Liverpool last Sunday with Mourinho then extending his catalogue of bizarre interviews.
It was during his second spell at Chelsea when we first came up against him. They beat us convincingly on the opening day of the 2014/15 season but his behaviour after our 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge later in the season was downright appalling. You might remember his initial words, “I prefer to say that this game had four crucial moments, minutes 30, 33, 43 and 69,” he said, but in truth it was minute 81 that irked him when Ben Mee scored the equaliser. His subsequent behaviour, horribly promoted by Sky, should have seen him face FA sanctions.
When he left Chelsea I thought we were rid of him but desperate Manchester United came calling. It’s been fun in the last few months. He’s fallen out with almost everyone from what I can see and it really was good fun looking at the pictures of the clearly disturbed Alex Ferguson and Bobby Charlton during Sunday’s Anfield humiliation.
I don’t care where he goes now but I hope that’s the last we will see of him in this country.Share this page :
