Former Chelsea manager, Ian Porterfield said that he was shocked and disappointed after being shown the door at Stamford Bridge.
Ian Porterfield said, “I did not know I was out until 2.20 pm when the chairman called me in. I had gone to work as normal and take the training. I am due to meet Chelsea’s chief executive Collin Hutchison and I’m confident I will be offered a fair settlement on the remainder of my contract. But I was shocked and very disappointed to be told by Ken Bates that the club needs a change of manager”
Porterfield became the latest manager to get the sack at Chelsea who was chasing their first major trophy in 22 years.
