On Friday, following a long week of speculation, Jose Mourinho was finally appointed the new manager of Manchester United on a three-year deal with an option to stay at the club until at least 2020.
The Portuguese coach replaced Louis van Gaal after his two-year stretch at Old Trafford ended on Monday following a poor season in the Premier League.
Understandably, after a long drawn-out process, the Twittersphere exploded into life once 'The Special One' was confirmed as the Red Devils' new leader.

"To become Manchester United manager is a special honor in the game," Mourinho said on his arrival at Old Trafford.
"It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.
"I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; it has hosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans."
The 53-year-old managed Chelsea over two spells in the Premier League, and some of their supporters weren't too happy about his comments.
It has only taken Mourinho talking like a United fan to bring Chelsea fans to their senses, after all those years of him coating them off.— Dami (@TheChelseaWay) May 27, 2016
Mourinho has got what he wanted. We were a stepping stone; an audition for his dream job. He hasn't tainted his legacy, he has destroyed it.— Dami (@TheChelseaWay) May 27, 2016

Jose Mourinho is a traitor. I'll keep on saying it. He once said his blood is blue, that ChelseaFC is family.— AkanSamuel (@akansamuel9) May 27, 2016
However, after three years of mediocrity, it seems there are mixed feelings among the Manchester United fanbase.
