Chelsea Fans Go Into Meltdown Mode As Mourinho Made Favourite For Manchester United Job

Chelsea fans are not reacting well after Jose Mourinho has been made the bookies favourite to be next in line for the Manchester United hot-seat. 

Despite the consistently shocking performances of Chelsea this season, it seems that fans of the Stamford Bridge club were still entirely behind their Portuguese manager prior to his sacking.

There is something about the Special One that seems to have formed an almost romantic infatuation in the minds of Chelsea supporters and Mourinho’s departure now appears to be having the impact of an unwanted break-up.

However, bad as things were for Chelsea supporters, they seem to have gotten a whole lot worse this morning as the bookies have made now made Jose Mourinho the standout favourite to take over from Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

Consistent murmurs have recently suggested that Ed Woodward and the United board are considering the Iron Tulip’s position at the club and with a number of top managers available, it seems Mourinho is now viewed as the most likely candidate to take over at Old Trafford.

With Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti being offered at odds of 6/1, Mourinho is now going at close to evens as the standout favourite.

Although the thought of the Special One actually strutting through the Old Trafford gates as Manchester United manager still seems a long way off, that hasn’t stopped Chelsea fans from freaking out at the mere prospect of that outcome.
