Lord Sugar voices bold theory about Jose Mourinho and Chelsea on Twitter

This is a rather controversial theory...

Lord Sugar has taken to social media to voice a somewhat controversial theory about Jose Mourinho’s exit from Chelsea in December.

The Portuguese coach was sacked by the west London club before Christmas following a disastrous start to their title defence.

There has been plenty of speculation as to why the Blues went from being Premier League champions to a team closer to the relegation zone than the top of the table over the course of just a few months.

Mourinho is now being touted as a possible successor to Louis van Gaal at Manchester United at the end of the season.

And former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar made his rather bold claim about Mourinho’s exit from Stamford Bridge on Twitter ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

Lord Sugar tweeted:

Mourinho recent stated that he plans to get back into management “soon” as he continues to be linked with the Manchester United job.
