Chelsea: Jose Mourinho hints at next destination as coach nears Blues axe

Jose Mourinho looks to be approaching the end of the road at Chelsea following defeats to West Ham United and Stoke City.

Following a 2-1 loss to the Hammers on Saturday, the reigning league cup champions were dumped out of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday when they were defeated on penalties by the Potters following a 1-1 draw.

Rumours are swirling that Roman Abramovich is set to pull the trigger on the Portuguese coach, and the weekend’s Premier League bout with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool may prove decisive.

Will it be Mourinho’s last match as Chelsea boss?

It looks as though the manager—who has also taken charge of FC Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid—is already considering his future options and, in an interview with Univision [via Le 10 Sport], has dropped a major hint as to where he might turn to next.

“I think the next stage for Major League Soccer will be to obtain younger players,” the manager began, “and coaches too? Me? Why not!”

However, maybe Mourinho isn’t ready to turn his back on Europe’s major leagues just yet.

“Not today, because I always enjoy European football, but in a few years I would not say no. [Marcello] Lippi went to China, Fabio [Capello] went to Russia.”

Could you envisage the Special One taking his trade to MLS any time soon?
