omg it has finally happened...

==========================

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has sensationally left Stamford Bridge by mutual consent, the club has confirmed.

The news comes just 24 hours after the disappointing Champions League draw against Rosenborg.
BBC Radio 5live football correspondent Jonathan Legard understands Mourinho texted senior players, including skipper John Terry, with the news.

LONDON (Reuters) - Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has left the club, according to media reports on Thursday. The Portuguese, who took over in 2004 and won consecutive Premier League titles, told senior players that he was leaving, Sky Sports News reported on Thursday.

Chelsea have made no comment on Mourinho's position, although Sky Sports News quoted a "senior player" as having said that Mourinho had been sacked.

A BBC report says Mourinho sent text messages to senior players, including skipper John Terry, telling them he was leaving the club.

Chelsea have never lost a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge under Mourinho but rumours surfaced last season that he had fallen out with billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

They lost their title to Manchester United last season and have started this season with some lacklustre displays.

Their last two Premier League games ended in a defeat at Aston Villa and a 0-0 draw at home to Blackburn Rovers, leaving them fifth in the table.

On Tuesday they drew 1-1 with Rosenborg Trondheim in the Champions League in front of just 25,000 fans.

Good riddance to him. I can't believe he quits so easily just because the start of the season not so great. He's like a little kid, who loses a game and then says they're not going to play anymore.

It was quite obvious that he was sacked by the Russian billionaire. :sweat:
