Following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager just 11 hours after sacking Mauricio Pochettino, social media went into complete meltdown – and rightly so.
For Spurs supporters, it’s been a day full of mixed emotions as they parted ways with the man they regarded as one of their most successful managers and welcomed someone who
But how are the Chelsea fans holding up, now that their relationship with Mourinho has taken yet another bump in the road as he confirms a deal with their biggest rivals?
Well, surprisingly, not very well…
Three biggest Chelsea Snakes ? of all time?
– Jose Mourinho
– Thibaut Courtois
– Dominic Solanke
I don’t care whatever anyone says because this is spot on. They’re people i can never take seriously because they’re full of lies.

??However, some of the Chelsea fans weren’t exactly surprised by Mourinho’s decision to join the Lilywhites. Because, well, let’s face it, they’ve already witnessed him take over at Manchester United just three years ago – so perhaps they’re used to his disloyalty by now.
Plus, their current manager isn’t too shabby neither – and the news might have been a lot harder to take if they weren’t currently sitting 11 spots above Spurs in the table.
Mourinho to Spurs isn’t that big a deal to me.
It’s a while since he left Chelsea. We saw him get edgy about the Blues when he was at Man U & also recently as Sky pundit.
It’s his nature.
Will certainly add a bit of spice to games with them, but we have Frank & he’s our future.

It is ZERO surprise to me that Mourinho would take the Spurs job.
As a Chelsea fan I will always appreciate what he did for the club, but the man’s ego completely prevents him from having any sort of loyalty.
I truly think he’s dusted in this game anyway, so I’m fine w/ it.

I still respect and love Jose Mourinho. This is football, which is a job for players and managers alike. People tend to forget that.
He will always love Chelsea, do not get it twisted. Dont care how unpopular my opinion is either.

I chose to believe Mourinho is still a Chelsea man and is still continuing his journey to destroy our opponents.
– Manchester United ?
– Spurs … ?

Either way, he’ll be an exciting addition to the Premier League and on December 22, we’ll all be in for a right treat. Chelsea are set to take on Spurs just three days before Christmas and this time, there’s a twist in store.
Away days at Tottenham are exciting enough, but now there’s an old friend in town.
Forget counting down the days until Christmas, this is the Premier League fixture Chelsea fans are waiting for…
The 22nd of December is going to be one hell of a day
– Tottenham vs Chelsea
– Mourinho vs Lampard
No doubt this will be the biggest game in London all season..
