Job security...

Your future will never be secure, and no-one gets into professional football to lead a dull predictable life. 

Chelsea has had 9 managers since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003, only two of them, Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancellotti, lasted more than a year.

So as a manager you don’t have the burden of building a dynasty like you might at Manchester United or Arsenal, you only have to think of the here and now. In fact, being Chelsea’s boss is just like being an app, you’re almost born obsolete because there’s a new one in the works the minute you’re installed. 

You’re like a US president in his second term – you can do what you like because you’re not staying long and won’t be back.
