Sports stars and clubs across the world continue to provide an insight into their lives on social media.Here, the PA news agency looks at some of the best examples from January 25.
FootballNews of Frank Lampard’s sacking by Chelsea was met with surprise.Reports that Frank Lampard will be sacked by @ChelseaFC today. Utterly ludicrous after his first bad run. It was always going to need time given so many new signings feeling their way into a new club. Patience being a virtue is seldom recognised in this sport. They never learn.— Gary Lineker 💙 (@GaryLineker) January 25, 2021Absolutely staggering decision from @ChelseaFC to sack Frank Lampard. Where do you begin? Against the odds made top 4 last season and qualified impressively to the knockout stages of the @ChampionsLeague this season. Bought some good players who will settle in given time. Madness— michael owen (@themichaelowen) January 25, 2021Gutted to see Lamps go! It was always going to take time for new players to bed in and adjust, I feel patience was needed, especially after working with no budget last year and doing such a great job. pic.twitter.com/IqCUjQsfxW— Shaun W-Phillips (@swp29) January 25, 2021I know will bounce back from this and use this experience only as a positive. I absolutely loved my time at Chelsea and the fans were always so great towards me so I really do hope the club get the right appointment.— Shaun W-Phillips (@swp29) January 25, 2021I would like to thank you for everything you and your committee have done for me since the day I arrived. As I told you, it seemed like we had been working together for 10 years!!
