What next for José?
Whilst the papers pick over the reasons for Mourinho’s departure from Chelsea it’s probably more interesting to speculate where he’ll turn up next. And I have a theory of my own! But before I do the problem that the board at Chelsea forgot, as one sports writer comments, is that the most important person at a football club is the Manager, not the over paid star players or the questionable foreign investors. And Mourinho, whether you’re a Chelsea fan or not, has a track record few can match so Chelsea pushing him out is I predict a mistake they’ll soon learn to regret.
So where will he turn up next? Well undoubtedly his Samsung mobile phone hasn’t stopped ringing with offers but I reckon he’ll take a hiatus until next season, then when Wenger moves from Arsenal which has been on the cards for a while Mourinho only have a slightly longer commute to the Emirates Stadium.
Or maybe someone should have a phone vote.
