People from all over the world were tweeting about the news.

The world's gone Mourinho mad. 200,000+ tweets since his sacking...

Even Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus got involved.

We are having a terrible year and yet I'm sad to see Mourinho go. He has done right by our team and is Blue to the core. Thanks, Great One.

Man United fans took the opportunity to relive some past woes.

The last time Guardiola, Mourinho and Ancelotti were all available in the same summer, United appointed Moyes.

With Mourinho, Ancelotti & Guardiola all available, the manager market looks stronger than ever. Lets not forget..

And it didn't take long until Arsenal fans came along and made it all about themselves.

Mourinho won Premier League 6 months ago - SACKED. Wenger hasn't won Premier League for 11yrs - UNSACKABLE.

I like to think it was our Community Shield win that made Mourinho go insane.

This from John Cross, author of a recent biography about Arsene Wenger, was particularly brutal.

Jose Mourinho. From the Special One to Specialist In Failure in seven months.

Jose Mourinho: February 2014: "Arsene Wenger is a specialist in failure." December 2015: Sacked by Chelsea.

But perhaps Arsenal fans shouldn't be *quite* so celebratory.

This reference was bound to happen.

@tancredipalmeri meanwhile in Stamford Bridge...

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness reacted in his own unique way.

Souness looks absolutely devvoed at the Mourinho news

And some were already dreaming up new career paths for Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho didn't wait around for long...

At the end of it all, this pun pretty much won the day.

So long, Jose, and thanks for the press conferences.
