Chelsea: Avram Grant sacked, Jose Mourinho to return?

Avram Grant has been sacked as manager of Chelsea. Getting to the final of the Champions League clearly was not enough. Though how far Grant was really in charge of the team was never clear to the outside observer.

So who will take his place?

The BBC report mentions Frank Rijkaard, Sven-Goran Eriksson, Brian Laudrup and Roberto Mancini. But maybe there is another candidate.

This morning's Sun says:

Jose Mourinho has been rebuilding his relationship with Roman Abramovich.

Former Chelsea manager Mourinho and the club owner have shared cosy chats at least three times in the last six weeks.

The news comes just 24 hours after the Special One’s successor, Avram Grant, was summoned to Stamford Bridge for crunch talks with chief executive Peter Kenyon.

So will the Special One return?

According to the Sun:

One senior official has confirmed the prospect of Mourinho returning HAS been discussed.

But it is more realistic the ex-Porto chief will go back to Chelsea after the NEXT manager has served his term.

I do not think we have seen the last of Jose. And hasn't life been dull without him?

Now read about Avram Grant's family and the Holocaust.
