Chelsea, the latest team to have grown in stature since the mid 2000’s when there billionaire, Russian owner took over the reigns.
Abramovich, is well known for his ruthless decision making when it comes to players and especially, the Managers. No Manager is safe under his merciless reign, even the mercurial Jose Mourinho, who first brought success to Chelsea in 2005 and yet two seasons later, was given the boot.
They said it was due to mutual consent; Was it really? Di Matteo won the elusive and first Champions League trophy but was fired mid way through the season. The more than competent Carlo Ancelotti won the double (Premier League and F. A cup) but was fired soon afterwards.
Mourinho was poached back to Chelsea by the Russian. Mourinho’s second coming was a sight to behold. He was renamed the ‘happy one’ from the ‘special one’. He brought in another title but was fired, as is the norm at Chelsea.
If Antonio Conte were to win the title, will he still be fired soon afterwards? Or will he be given more time to rectify a dip in form? Managers you are not safe! Beware! That’s what should be read, once you enter Stamford Bridge.
