Ex-footballer and TalkSport host Alan Brazil says Chelsea should stand by Jose Mourinho and that the club would be mad to sack him.
Speaking on his breakfast show this morning, Brazil, who played for, amongst others, Ipswich Town, Manchester United and Spurs as well as his native Scotland a career spanning much of the 70s and 80s, claimed that Jose Mourinho is the best man to turn around Chelsea’s season.
“Yes, Chelsea are not playing that well, but look at the table and if you let Mourinho sort it they will be back up there,” Brazil said.
“If you push Jose out of this job you are off your head. Who is going to come in and take over? Whoever does will have a bunch of rebellious players.
“The press have it in for him and it amazes me because we need characters. For me, if it blows over, and it a big if, then he will get back to winning ways. I am certain of that. I like winners, and if you look at where Jose has been, wherever he has been he is a winner and you can’t just push someone aside for having a bad time. It’s nonsense.
