Jose Mourinho has left Chelsea by mutual consent.

The Portuguese's departure isn't all that surprising considering how the season has gone, and one man who will know how to deal with losing The Special One is midfielder John Obi Mikel.

Mourinho signed the Nigerian in 2006 and he has since outlasted the former Porto manager twice in west London.

Meanwhile, Arsenal fans have pointed out that Mathieu Flamini has survived longer than Jose Mourinho in each of their spells in the Premier League. Both first came to England in 2004, with Mourinho setting off at the beginning of the 2007/8 season while Flamini stuck around until it ended.

Both returned in 2013, which means Arsenal fans probably won't have to put up with the Frenchman for much longer.
