A look at the eight Chelsea managers that have served under Russian owner Roman Abramovich:
Ranieri was the first manager to be fired by Abramovich. The Italian, who became known as the ''Tinkerman'' because of his tendency to fiddle with his team, was hired in September 2000 by previous Chelsea owner Ken Bates. He was fired in May 2004 despite guiding Chelsea to second place behind Arsenal and reaching the Champions League semifinals.
Mourinho came to Chelsea after winning the Champions League title with FC Porto in 2004. Upon arrival, he called himself the ''Special One,'' and then justified the name, becoming the most successful Chelsea manager ever. In three years, he won back-to-back Premier League titles in 2004-05 and 2005-06, the FA Cup in 2007 and two League Cups in 2005 and 2007.
A power struggle with the Russian owner paved the way for his exit in September 2007.
