Former Chelsea midfielder Tony Cascarino must be in the running for an award for biggest over-reaction by a football pundit.
Cascarino told Sky Sports that Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti is now fighting to hang on to his job, after the Blues lost two out of their last three games, including a particularly humiliating 3-0 defeat by Sunderland at the weekend.
“Carlo Ancelotti is not safe,” opined the former Republic of Ireland international. “Jose Mourinho lost his job after achieving amazing feats at Chelsea and he lost it very early on in the season.”
He added: “Chelsea have become a bit like Real Madrid and they’ll be a serious overhaul of the squad if they don’t win (the Premier League). If he (owner Roman Abramovic) fails, he will look at tearing the club apart.”
