With football fans wondering why Chelsea is still retaining Jose Mourinho as club manager, one person believes that the former Real Madrid coach still has some tricks up his sleeve and not worth losing.
Arsenal all time highest goal scorer and legend, Thierry Henry has backed the under-fire Jose Mourinho to come through his Chelsea ‘crisis’.
Less than six months after leading the club to Premier League title glory, Mourinho’s future at Stamford Bridge is being called into question.
Saturday’s defeat to West Ham was Chelsea’s fifth in the top-flight this season and, according to widespread newspaper reports, the ‘Special One’ could be axed if the Blues lose to Liverpool this weekend.
But Henry insists it would be a mistake to ditch Mourinho, with the Arsenal legend telling talkSPORT: “We are talking about one of the best managers in history here.
“People forget that the guy won the treble with Inter Milan. He won with Porto, he won with Real Madrid and he won with Chelsea.
“Now he has to face, for the first time in his career, a crisis. Can he deal with it? Does he have the tools to deal with it? Yes, I think he has the tools to deal with it and he can deal with it.
“There is still time for them to come back. A lot of people are on the edge at the moment but I still think Jose Mourinho is the guy to change what is happening at Chelsea.”
