Michael Essien’s ‘daddy’ Jose Mourinho’s departure from Real Madrid has been confirmed by club President Florentino Perez.

The decision to terminate the appointment of the Portuguese trainer was made at a board meeting on Monday.

Club President Florentino Perez confirmed the decision by the board to sack Mourinho at a press conference this evening.

The axe drops on Mourinho following a trophy-less campaign with Los Blancos and Perez confirms it is the main reason why they have decided to part ways with the iconic manager.

“After the board meeting which has just ended, I would like to inform you of two decisions,” he said at the press conference.

“Real Madrid’s relationship with coach Jose Mourinho will terminate at the end of this season.

“Today is a sad day. We have reached an agreement with our coach and we wish him the best of luck.

“Real Madrid is the best club of the 21st century. In other words, the best in history. This season, we fell short of those expectations.

“We do not think our achievements of this year have been sufficient for a demanding club like Real Madrid and a coach like Mourinho.

“The word ‘failure’ doesn’t correspond to the reality – right now, you need 100 points to win the league.”

Perez however insisted no agreement has been reached with anyone to take over the job which will be made vacant this summer.

Reports are rife an agreement has been struck with PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti to take over.

But Perez insisted no such agreement has been made.

“We do not have any agreement signed with any potential new coach,” Perez added.

“We have a number of candidates in mind not just one. We asked PSG whether his (Ancelotti) contract would be terminated, they replied, ‘No’.”


The Portuguese won La Liga once, one Spanish Cup and the Spanish Super Cup during his three year stay with Real Madrid.

He is widely reported to be set to be re-appointed manager of English club Chelsea with whom he enjoyed many success.

    Will anyone with common sense civilize these uneducated journalists at GSN on how to write headlines. They are utterly childish, third world and ghetto.

    What kind of headline is that?

    It’s unbelievable how low their competence are.

  11. Nana says:

    Ghana Soccer Net, please show a bit of professionalism in your reportage. This is not the 1st time you are misleading the readers with your headlines. Be professionals or else, you loose your credibility.

  12. Gary says:

    It was not a sacking. Mourinho wanted to leave but was under contract. Both parties came to a mutual agreement. No club would intentionally sack the world’s best manager!

  13. Troy says:

  18. GHANAarmedROBBER says:

    it is a must that he becomes Essien daddy………….the daddy in Accra-Ghana is having a hard time gaining his attention whilst GNS is trying to do cheap publicity….It is probably because Essien has bribed GSN to create a media publicity to tie Essien to Mou so his carrer will not die…..a career that stinks of old age…….at some point in time whether GSN or Mou likes it or not he will retire……he is no longer in his prime and finally,this beef about him joining Chelsea is not right….is Chelsea the only club he can play for in England….please GSN give us a break with this daddy stuff.
