If you follow world football in any sort of fashion, you know who Jose Mourinho is. One of the managers who transcends just coaching, Mourinho has been one of the most successful managers of this era. One look at a list of Mourinho’s accomplishments and one can’t help but admire the manager. Mourinho has seven league titles, two UEFA Champions League, and multiple domestic cups. That resume speaks for itself. Mourinho’s reputation is he only stays a clubs for a couple years and looks for new challenges. He left Porto, Chelsea, and Inter after three seasons or less. He joined Real Madrid in 2010, and I think it’s time for Mourinho to pack his bags and take a new job.

Mourinho’s time at Real Madrid has been tumultuous to say the least. He has enjoyed success with Copa del Rey, Supercopa de Espana, and La Liga titles. Still, Los Blancos have been eliminated from the Champions League this season and are much too far behind Barcelona to win La Liga. A campaign with no trophies (Supercopa was won before the season) is a big deal at Real Madrid. Still, I don’t think Mourinho will be shown the door. He is too well respected and simply too good a manger to be fired. I think he will leave on his own accord. During Mourinho’s tenure there have been talks of internal problems. There have been rumors of a ‘revolt’. He supposedly has had bust-ups with star man Cristiano Ronaldo. Lastly he benched world-class keeper Iker Casillas, in a move that didn’t make much sense. Mourinho is a fiery manager who has a certain style that can upset some players. He seems to have worn his welcome out at Real.

It may be Chelsea or Paris Saint-Germain, who knows, but Mourinho seems to be on his way out the door. With so much speculation about his departure it would be beneficial to himself and Real Madrid if he exits at the end of the season. Another season with constant rumors would not help the club. I think Mourinho has warn out his welcome and will move on this summer.
