'Mourinho Is Begging To Be Sacked'

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has come under major pressure this season and, judging by his actions, he is begging to be sacked, according to a former Bayern Munich and Liverpool star.

Dietmar Hamann believes the Portuguese tactician is losing the plot after repeatedly clashing with referees, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and even his own players, his treatment of Eden Hazard being an example.

"Some of the stuff (Mourinho) is coming out with at the moment and over recent weeks is not far from a meltdown," Hamann said on talkSPORT.

"I don't know what's going on with the owner and what the circumstances are, but, to me, at times, it looks like he's begging for the sack.

"The thing that worries me about Chelsea is that he seems to be falling out with all the players. If you want to get a reaction from a player and you put him on the bench like he did with (Eden) Hazard the other day, it's not a problem. But you don't bring him on in the 89th minute to humiliate him and embarrass him even further.

"And he's done it with most of the players. (Branislav) Ivanovic has been labelled as a player who hasn't performed this season, which may be true, but if you do it with one or two players to get a reaction that's fair enough, but I think he has done it to most of them now."

Hamann won five titles with Bayern and another nine with the Reds. He was part of the famous Liverpool team that lifted the 2005 Champions League trophy after being 3-0 down at half-time in the final.
