Mourinho Downgraded To “The OK One”
BELEAGUERED Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho suffered yet another crippling blow today, after his status as “the special one” was downgraded to “the OK one”.
Mourinho has been the subject of intense scrutiny this season, as his Chelsea side currently sit towards the bottom end of the league table with 6 defeats from 11 games, as well as suffering a League Cup exit to Stoke along the way.
The slew of dreadful results continued at the weekend as his side suffered a humiliating 3-1 loss to Liverpool, of all clubs. Dubbed the worst start to a Chelsea season in living memory, Mourinho is coming under increasing pressure from club owner Roman Abramanovich to turn things around or risk the sack.
To show he means business, Abramanovich has revoked Mourinho’s standing as the “special one”, relegating him to the depths of “OK, one”, a moniker shared by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
“Jose has always considered himself a cut above every other manager, so this downgrade has got to sting,” said Olly Charter, renowned football pundit.
“Being the OK one puts him in with the Steve Bruces of this world, certainly not where he thought he’d be after winning the league last year. He’s not quite in David Moyes territory, but with a few more losses he will be”.
“The OK one” is hoping for a turn in fortunes this week, with many suggesting that he may be “the fired one” before too long.
