How Twitter reacted to Jose Mourinho's Manager of the Season Award

Friday’s back pages provided further reasons for Chelsea fans to celebrate, as manager Jose Mourinho received his first individual accolade since returning to Stamford Bridge; the Barclays Premier League manager of the season. The Blues boss scoops the award ahead of fellow nominees Ronald Koeman, Garry Monk, Nigel Pearson and Arsene Wenger.

Following an impressive domestic season, in which the 2014/15 title winners have been beaten on just three occasions, the 52-year-old head coach – formerly of Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid – guided his side to their first league championship in five years, as well as winning the League Cup.

It is the third time Mourinho has been awarded the Manager of the Season accolade – the others also came after Premier League title triumphs in 2004-05 and 2005-06 – and by doing so he now ranks joint-second in the history books, with Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger also on three.

Speaking to Sky Sports after receiving the award, Mourinho said: “This is, as you like to say in England, the icing on the cake. But the cake is more important than the icing.”

“The cake is the Premier League, the cake is the objective of the manager, of the technical staff, of the squad, of the club and of millions of supporters. And I work for the cake, I don’t work for this. I am the manager of the season and obviously I’m very happy with this.”

Here is a look at how Twitter reacted to the Portuguese head coach’s most recent award:

Somewhat unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans were the first to congratulate ‘The Special One’.




However, there were a few Premier League fans who disagreed.


A select number of Tweeters correctly pointed out the following…


Meanwhile, this Arsenal fan is clearly intent on fuelling the Wenger vs Mourinho rivalry.


Finally, our condolences go out to John Carver. We’re not quite sure how he fell short?
