Social media is awash with mixed feelings following Manchester United's sack of Jose Mourinho.
The Old Trafford outfit announced the departure of the former Chelsea manager on Tuesday following a poor start to the season that has left them sixth in the English top-flight table.
The 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday left Manchester United with just two wins from their last eight games across all competitions.
The news, however, comes as a relief for some Nigerians while some have lamented the decision, praising the Portuguese for his work at the club that saw them win the Uefa Europa League, the English League Cup and the Community Shield.

Now, I - and fellow FREELANCE FANS - hope to enjoy beautiful football from the stables of Old Trafford.
Revelation 12:12 "Therefore rejoice, ye United fans, and ye that dwell in Old Trafford. Woe to the inhabiters of the Bernabeu! For Mourinho is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time..."— Solace Chukwu (@TheOddSolace) December 18, 2018

Jose Mourinho; A man and A legend. Many never liked you either because of your style or your attitude but not many can cope with success. Thank you for doing wonders at my club. Thank you for doing things that no other coach had done in the history of the club. Always a Legend.— KUNLE SALAKO (@Bishop_kanny) December 18, 2018
