Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could face the sack by club owner Roman Abrahimovich if Chelsea lose to Norwich City after the international break.
The club owner is still happy to retain Mourinho for the time being following defeat to Stoke that leaves the club jist three points above the relegation zone after 12 games of the season.
Chelsea sources however say the club owner might be willing pull to trigger if Chelsea lose the next premier league match to Norwich City after the international break.
Mourinho led the club to the league title just five months ago and three months ago signed a new foul year deal with the club.
In a different report by the Metro UK, it is believed that Abramovich has drawn up a list of possible successors to Mourinho with Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone top of the list.
Chelsea will however have to pay £25million as compensation fee to Mourinho. The London club will also have to pay Atletico £15million for poaching Simeone.
While Simeone, an Argentine does not speak English, his his assistant, German Burgos, is learning the language ahead of a possible exit for the pair this summer.
