Chelsea balls: Mourinho attacked by three out-of-work managers

by | 7th, October 2015

mourinho The Sun says “top bosses” have piled in on Jose Mourinho, whose Chelsea side are not yet flying high.

Who are these “top bosses” placing Jose under siege “?

Former England boss Fabio Capello, Dutch legend Johan Cruyff and Harry Redknapp have all gone on the attack. Ex-Tottenham chief Redknapp claims the root of the Blues’ Premier League demise could be the players simply do not like Mourinho.

None of the trio are in management just now. But they do have careers as pundits.

First up: Redknapp:

“Maybe some players don’t like him. It’s quite possible. I think everybody loved him the first time he came. Maybe now, some of the new players aren’t happy with the way they’re being treated or don’t like the way he talks to them… He’s never had to cope with that before. It must be very strange for him.”

Yeah, maybe. Or, er, maybe not. And if that’s not attacking Jose, then surely this isn’t either:

“He will come back… It’s up to him to sort it out. It’s his biggest test and I’m sure he’s going to come through this test.”

Now Capello:

“Mourinho is a strategist… He is a great manager but after a year-and-a-half he burns the players… The cycles of the manager of Chelsea last more or less this period. The team lacks rhythm, is missing the ‘nastiness’ and there’s no aggression.”
