Jose Mourinho left Chelsea through ‘mutual consent’ with the club’s management on Thursday.

A few hours after the manager’s break-up with the club, Chelsea players paid respects and honour to Mourinho via social media – except for a few.

Nigeria international, Jon Obi Mikel, refused to pay tribute to the Portuguese who brought him to Stamford Bridge in 2006.

Mikel’s social media handles did not have anything in form of any tribute or goodwill message to his former manager.


His last post on Instagram which dated back to December 16 had photos of his twin daughters in the Blues shirt.

Mikel’s twitter, with a followership of 372k, had a last post about parenting and being father to his twins.


Chelsea players, John Terry, Cesc Fabregas and Cesar Azpillicueta are among those who showed their respect to Mourinho, hours after his departure.

”Thank you for all you have done for me. I owe you a lot and we will all miss you. Good luck in the future,” Fabregas posted on Thursday; adding to an instagram post: ”I know you will be back soon”.


Terry wrote on Instagram: ”Thank You doesn’t seem enough. Sad sad day . Gonna miss you Boss.


”The Very Best I have EVER worked with, unbelievable memories together???? #boss #friend #specialone #bestever @chelseafc.”


Former England and Manchester City midfielder, Joey Barton joined in the tributes.
