Former West Ham defender Alvaro Arbeloa aimed a parting shot at Slaven Bilic following the Croatian's sacking by the club.
The Hammers announced Bilic's departure on Monday, in the wake of Saturday's dismal 4-1 home defeat at the hands of Liverpool, another of the Spaniard's former teams.
In quote tweeting an account reporting the news of the manager's demise, Arbeloa posted: "Better late than never."
Arbeloa arrived at West Ham in August 2016 on a one-year deal, but played just three Premier League matches under Bilic.
The former Real Madrid and Spain defender - winner of two European Championships and the World Cup with his country - retired following his year in east London.
