Twitter reacts as Mauricio Pochettino gets the sack

It's over.

The reign of the Poch has met its demise. At precisely 7:34 pm on Tuesday, 19th November, Tottenham Hotspur released an official statement via their Twitter account.

The statement dealt with something that up until a few months ago was unthinkable — the permanent dismissal of their Argentinian coach. Poch's near six-year reign had transformed Spurs from an afterthought of a club to mainstays in the world of elite football. Depending on who and where you're stationed, the news was met by a mix of acceptance, anger, frustration and plenty of surprise.

And as is the case with the modern world, plenty of people jumped onto Twitter to share their opinions on the sacking. We've compiled some of the best below:

Whether one agrees with the club's decision or not, there can be no denying what Poch has achieved for this club. Sure, he didn't get his hands on any trophies but given that he had less than a shoestring budget to operate within the transfer market, incredible competition from other teams and managers, a host of inexperienced but talented players to develop and groom from scratch, he should be heralded as nothing less than a hero.

Despite his empty trophy cabinet, make no mistake, this man is hot property now and there can be no doubt that success will follow him wherever he chooses to call home next.
