JOSÉ MOURINHO LEAVES CHELSEA

José Mourinho has left Chelsea after two and a half years in charge. Mourinho had been in his second spell at the club, having previously managed at Stamford Bridge from 2004-2007.

A statement on the club website said: “All at Chelsea thank José for his immense contribution since he returned as manager in the summer of 2013.

“His three league titles, FA Cup, Community Shield and three League Cup wins over two spells make him the most successful manager in our 110-year history.

“The club wishes to make clear José leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Chelsea. His legacy at Stamford Bridge and in England has long been guaranteed and he will always be warmly welcomed back to Stamford Bridge.”
