The Portuguese was sent to the stands in the loss and has faced criticism for his behaviour since the start of the 2015-16 campaign.

Reports have suggested that he could be shown the door if Liverpool take three points from the Blues at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

Alessandro Proto, a shareholder at Monaco, has revealed that the principality outfit are ready to pounce if he becomes available.

Proto said: "On Saturday night the first contact was made with Jose Mourinho about training Monaco. We are still in a very early stage but we are convinced that Mourinho could train Monaco."
