Days later it is announced he will leave Real.

On the eve of the 2015-16 campaign, Mourinho signs a new four-year deal. Holders Chelsea go out of the League Cup in the fourth round, losing on penalties at Stoke City.

They are dumped out of the League Cup by second-tier Derby County on Sept. 25, 2018 and a 3-1 league defeat by West Ham United four days later confirms their worst start to a season in 29 years.

On Dec. 18, United announce that Mourinho has been sacked with the club sixth in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur 2019-21
