Axed Chelsea boss in line for shock management return

Jose Mourinho is in line to make a second managerial comeback of his career, with reports from CNN claiming Porto may approach him after sacking Julen Lopetegui.

The Portuguese tactician is currently out of worth after being axed by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich last month, but has already been linked with a host of big jobs – including Louis van Gaal’s position at Manchester United,

However, he remains out of the game, and reports claim that Porto are looking into the possibility of drafting Mourinho back in as their head coach until the end of the season.

The 52-year-old is cult figure at the Estadio do Dragao after guiding the club to a miraculous Champions League win in 2004.

Should he head back it would be the second time he’s re-joined a side he’s already managed, with his last spell at Chelsea having been a ‘comeback’.
