5. The Board of Directors
It wasn’t even the middle of the season when the Board of Directors of Chelsea were deeply unhappy with how Mourinho managed the team, just one season after he led the same team to become the champions of Premier League. In a match against West Ham, the board were highly disappointed to see that 7 players received yellow cards (including Mourinho himself!) and were ready to send a vote of no confidence towards Mourinho. He then slowly felt the pressure piling up on him from the directors and wanted to change things for immediate success, which finally backfired, as it led to our next point in the countdown- which is INCREDIBLY BORING TACTICS!
