Former Chelsea Manager, Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that a lack of genuine motivation cost Jose Mourinho his job at Chelsea. Ancelotti however stated that the lack of motivation was not on the part of the manager but on the part of the players.

Speaking to, Ancelotti who managed Real Madrid until he was fired at the end of last season told the world that he believed Mourinho was a fine manager but was unable to motivate his squad and that led to his sacking as Chelsea manager. “That is the most difficult job for a coach because within a group, both one that is doing well and one that is doing badly, there are always problems to resolve,” the Italian coach told “When things are going well, there is a risk of relaxation; when things are going badly, obviously there is a loss of confidence. It’s a little of this that Mourinho paid for, the fact that the team had not started like last year, when they had a tremendous desire to do well after a bad year.” Mourinho was fired following a 2-1 loss to Leicester City that left the London club 16th in the league after 16 matches.

Ancelotti is set to return to management in the summer as he would replace Pep Guardiola as manager of Bayern Munich while Mourinho who is being heavily linked with Van Gaal’s job at Manchester United is keen to return to the training ground in a managerial capacity.
