Chelsea’s manager, Jose Mourinho, could be fired before the end of the week, the Sun (UK) reports.
The London-based newspaper claimed that the embattled Chelsea manager may be sacked if the Blues fail to beat FC Porto on Wednesday, December 9, and Leicester at the weekend.
The Telegraph correspondent Jason Burt concurs, suggesting that the presence of Chelsea’s owner at the game against Bournemouth sends a signal.
“The fact (Roman) Abramovich was at the game last night counts against Mourinho because the key now is the Champions League match which they can’t afford to lose.

Meanwhile a source close to the club disclosed that the entire management of the team is sad at the status of the club right now.
He said that Chelsea’s board led by Roman Abrahamovic did not demand an explanation from Mourinho after their loss to Bournemouth and left him in place, but another bad week could end that.
However, Mourinho could still bank on the lifeline despite his team floundering in the league as they are still doing well in the Champions League.
