If reports in England are to be believed, Chelsea is preparing to offload Jose Mourinho barely five months after the Portuguese coach led the club to a domestic league and cup double. In fact, the only question, according to Eurosport's Dan Levene, is when his departure will be announced: if Chelsea loses at home to Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Wednesday, he could be officially let go that day. Otherwise, Levene says the club will wait-as Liverpool did in firing Brendan Rodgers last month--until the next international break, which begins after Sunday's Premier League game at Stoke City.
