MULTIMEDIA CONTENT SHOWING VARIOUS STILL IMAGES OF JOSE-MOURINHO STORY: Jose Mourinho was sacked as manager of Premier League champions Chelsea on Thursday (December 17) after a calamitous run of results left the west London club one point above the relegation zone. According to the club, they had parted company with the Portuguese coach by "mutual consent". The start of a season has not been terribly good for Chelsea - they were defeated 2-1 at surprise league leaders Leicester City on Monday (December 14, 2015), their ninth loss in 16 league games since the start of a season. Back in 2013 Mourinho declared himself the "happy one" when he returned for a second stint in charge of Chelsea after spells at Inter Milan and Real Madrid. The 52-year-old former football player is rated as one of the world's best coaches.
