REVEALED: Chelsea chiefs demanded Lukaku explanation from Mourinho before sack

Chelsea chiefs demanded an explanation from Jose Mourinho over the sale of Romelu Lukaku before firing him, it has been revealed.

The People says the form that Everton’s ex-Stamford Bridge striker is showing in front of goal this season was used against the Portuguese as the champions’ season unravelled.

Mourinho was quizzed over the £28million sale of Belgium international Lukaku in summer 2014.

Current frontman Diego Costa’s repeated no-shows led to frustration that Lukaku – a player the club had scouted, signed for £18m in 2011 and then persevered with during two season-long loan deals – had been allowed to leave.

Mourinho struggled to find a foil for Costa – the long-term replacement for club legend Didier Drogba.
