Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Mauricio Pochettino has left the club and Jose Mourinho will take over the squad instead of him, and Chelsea fans have been quick to react to the update on the former.
The Argentine coach did a fantastic job turning Spurs into real contenders but unfortunately for them, he leaves his post having won no trophies during his tenure.

Mourinho, who needs no special introduction, will now also have quite a difficult job of rebuilding a squad that is aching for a refreshment and a change.
Of course, this piece of news has already sent shockwaves across the footballing stage and fans of other clubs have been commenting on it.
Many Chelsea fans, for instance, were surprised to see Pochettino go and some were laughing at him since he hasn’t won anything during his stay in London.
And there are actually some who seem to respect their rival’s former gaffer and they were quick to show it.
You can see some of their replies down in the tweets below:
Am so shocked to hear that Tottenham have sacked Pochettino, though results have been dreadful recently, but this is still the same guy that brought Tottenham to this high level. It would be interesting to see who they will be replacing him with. #CFC

Certainly didn’t expect Tottenham to sack #Pochettino but I think it was the right thing to do at the end of the day, he probably would have been going elsewhere in the summer anyways and there a shambles at the moment. London is blue🔵⚽️ #CFC

This sacking of Pochettino is so weird, on one side it shows Tottenham’s intent on being ambitious which is not bad but on the other side it means that they have sacked their most successful manager in the pl era who got them through to a UCL final just 6 months back #pochout

Stunning from Spurs to finally end it with Pochettino.
I am a masssive fan of his, and I am interested to see where he goes from here. If I was a Spurs fan I would be fuming. Write this season off, actually freshen up the side, and give him one more chance.

Pochettino sacked by Tottenham. Personally I think he has taken them as far as he can, this is probably the right decision they are in need of a revamp.
Who will be the next Spurs boss? pic.twitter.com/2ei3ZlChkQ

Mauricio Pochettino… Tottenham’s most successful manager since the 1960s:
– 0 league titles
– 0 FA Cups
– 0 League Cups
– 0 Champions League
Another specialist in failure. https://t.co/DNJW7HJhDU

I have to admit, as a Chelsea fan I do feel sorry for Pochettino. To suddenly sack him like that and appoint Mourinho almost immediately within 12 hours, just seems a bit dodgy to be honest.
Be interesting to see what type of welcome we give Mourinho at the Bridge now. #CFC
