Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Chelsea
The Portuguese manager led the club to win the title last season, but have found themselves near the bottom of the table this year.
His sacking comes after two days of crisis board meetings, according to reports.
The 52-year-old Portuguese boss is reported to have been relieved of his Stamford Bridge position just seven months after guiding Chelsea to the Premier League title.
Mourinho drove Chelsea to title and league cup success last term, only to see his team slip to nine defeats in 16 Premier League matches so far this season.
