Sinclair and more: Twitter reacts to reports Chelsea sack Mourinho
Frank Sinclair and Kevin Davies have their say as Twitter reacts to reports Chelsea have sacked Jose Mourinho
Chelsea have parted company with Jose Mourinho, according to BBC Sport.
The Blues suffered their ninth Premier League defeat of the season after a 2-1 defeat by Leicester City at King Power Stadium.
Mourinho was heavily critical of his Chelsea players following Monday night’s loss, and the 52-year-old has left Stamford Bridge after a two-and-a-half year reign in west London.
And BBC Sport reported that the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid manager’s Chelsea contract has been terminated, with the defending champions 20 points adrift of leaders Leicester.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from some of the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Mourinho’s apparent dismissal.
