Tottenham Hotspur have officially parted company with Mauricio Pochettino (Sky News) – and some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have reacted to the news.
The north Londoners have controversially relieved the Argentine of his duties after a poor recent run of results.
A statement from chairman Daniel Levy read: “We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste.
“Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.”
Pochettino departs Spurs after over five years in charge after joining from Southampton in 2014.
The search now begins for a new man in charge, and many names are being bandied about on social media.
Max Allegri and Jose Mourinho appear to be the highest profile names in the conversation, but some Spurs fans are looking to up-and-coming managers such as Julian Nagelsmann.
There have also been a few mentions for Nuno Espirito Santo, who has done a terrific job at Wolves since his arrival in 2017.
Wolves fans react
News of Pochettino’s sacking obviously provoked a huge reaction on Twitter, and many Wolves fans were defiant in their stance over Espirito Santo:

Let’s lock Nuno up until Spurs have a new manager. If they approach they can go swivel! #WWFC
