We finally have an answer to what happened to Jose Mourinho during his second stint at Chelsea. What could possibly have gone so wrong so fast to see the iconic manager lose his job halfway through the season after the club lifted the Premier League title? Well, the answer may surprise you.

American actor Will Ferrell has stepped up to claim responisiblity for his part in getting the outspoken manager sacked in December. Joining Men in Blazers, Ferrell reminisces on the time he called out Mourinho's tactics at the 2015 GQ Men of the Year awards at London's Royal Opera House.

Apparently rumors about dressingroom unrest and player revolts were hogwash. The true reason for the demise of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea lies within the comedic stylings of an American actor. Apparently Roman Abramovich also adheres to the 'if you're not first, you're last' lifestyle. Poor Jose got the ax because Roman was bored one night and watched Talledega Nights on Netflix. Football is a fickle, cold world.
