Cole, Kalou were on outer for Chelsea's Mourinho

Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole is unlikely to shed too many tears over Jose Mourinho's departure last night.

The Independent says the England midfielder had a public falling out with his manager in view of his team-mates after Chelsea's win over Portsmouth in August and the basis of his relationship with his former manager is understood to be delicate at the best of times.

Salomon Kalou, meanwhile, was understood to be the main target of Mourinho's anger in the immediate aftermath of their embarrassing 1-1 Champions League draw.
