Jose Mourinho is currently without a job after leaving Roma. Mourinho, who has had two previous stints with Chelsea, expressed his desire to return to the club last year, viewing it as his ‘ideal scenario’. He is statistically the most successful manager in Chelsea’s history, having won three Premier League titles, three League Cups, and an FA Cup.
With a win ratio of 63.55%, Mourinho has also managed Manchester United, Tottenham, and Roma. Despite being sacked by Roma last month, Mourinho has been mentioned as a potential candidate to replace the under-fire Pochettino at Chelsea. The pressure on Pochettino has been mounting as Chelsea’s performance this season has not shown much improvement.
Mourinho’s representatives expressed his desire to return to Chelsea to the club figures 12 months ago, but it’s unclear if Chelsea’s current owners would be interested in hiring him. As Mourinho’s family still lives in London and he has always preferred working in the Premier League, he remains open to a dramatic third return to Chelsea if the opportunity arises. Pochettino is also under pressure due to underwhelming performances and results.
After a 4-2 loss to Wolves, Pochettino expressed his disappointment and emphasized the need to help the players recover from the defeat.
