Former Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, has said that Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, would be “foolish” to sack manager Jose Mourinho.

The reigning champions are fourteenth in the Premier League having lost eight of their fifteen matches this season.

It has been reported that Mourinho could be sacked if the Blues fail to win their next two games.

Ferguson said “There is no point in sacking one of the best coaches of all time.”

Mourinho returned to Chelsea in the summer of 2013 and won the league and Capital One Cup in his second season, adding to the two league titles, FA Cup and two League Cups he won during his first spell at the club from 2004 to 2007.

Between his stints at Stamford Bridge, he won four major trophies with Inter Milan and two at Real Madrid.

Next Saturday, Chelsea travel to league leaders Leicester, who are two points clear at the top of the table under manager Claudio Ranieri and seventeen ahead of the Blues.
