Reports are circulating this morning that Chelsea have sacked Jose Mourinho, following their abysmal start to the season. While the reports remain unconfirmed, the sheer volume of them suggests that there's more to this than simple rumors:

BREAKING: I understand Jose Mourinho has just been told by Chelsea he has been sacked as manager— Dan Roan (@danroan) December 17, 2015
After Mourinho's reaction to the latest loss against Leicester City, these reports are probably not all that surprising to anyone that follows the sport. It's unclear who the club plan to turn to for the remainder of the 2015/16 campaign, but I'm sure we'll have some solid information on that shortly after the club confirm the managerial change.
More to come...much, much more.
