A day after parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham Hotspur sent their fanbase into a frenzy by announcing former Chelsea and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho as the new man in charge. And guess what, #MourinhoOut is already a trending topic on twitter

Pochettino, who joined Tottenham back in 2014 from Southampton, guided the Lilywhites to the Champions League final last season and thus became only the third manager in the club’s history to take the team in any major European final.

Having been in charge of as many as 293 games across all competition, and 202 in the Premier League, the Argentine’s fall started soon after the new season unraveled. After being knocked out of the League Cup by League Two side Colchester, Tottenham suffered 7-2 hammering at hands of Bayern Munich at home in the Champions League.

Results continued to deteriorate as Brighton put three past Tottenham’s defence in the subsequent fixture, and as things are right now, the team sit at a lowly 14th place in the league table.pre

Responding to the fall, the Tottenham hierarchy replaced Pochettino with Mourinho, and the internet hasn’t really taken the news well. While some are excited about the news, some are, well… Let these tweets show you.
