Chelsea should not sack Jose Mourinho, according to Alvaro Arbeloa, who played for the Portuguese manager for three years at Real Madrid, according to The Guardian.
Arbeloa stated that Chelsea would be wrong to sack their under-fire manager, as Mourinho effectively “guarantees success”.
During their three years together at Real Madrid, Mourinho won the Copa Del Rey and La Liga with the Spanish giants, but was sacked after differences between him and the first team squad grew too large.
Mourinho has come under steadily mounting pressure this year, with Saturday’s defeat to Liverpool leaving the Stamford Bridge side 15th after 11 games played, with only 11 points.
Despite his repeated suggestions that he does not feel the pressure and that he is perfectly comfortable with his position, Mourinho’s press conferences have, for the last few weeks, been taken over by questions regarding his future.
If Chelsea were to sack Mourinho this would represent a tremendous change of fortune for the west London side, who clinched the Premier League title so convincingly with pretty much the same squad less than six months ago.
