Branislav Ivanovic claims that Chelsea players are extremely lucky that owner Roman Abramovich only sacked manager José Mourinho.
The Portuguese was relieved from his duties after less than three years in charge of the club. Unlike in the last few campaigns, the club tried to resist making a change in the middle of the campaign. After witnessing Chelsea slip into a relegation fight towards the end of 2015, Abramovich had no other option but to change the management. After the arrival of Guus Hiddink, things have been much better at the club.
