A Chelsea fan who got hot under the collar when asked whether Jose Mourinho should be sacked, has ironically found himself out of a job.

Clive O'Connell, who worked as a lawyer for Goldberg Segalla, was interviewed by the Neeks Sports' YouTube channel after Chelsea's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool and caused controversy by branding Liverpool fans as 'Scouse scum'.

The Evening Standard have reported that after the game O'Connell continued to abuse Liverpool supporters through his now protected Twitter account. Replying to an account campaigning for Mourinho to be sacked, O'Connell wrote: "Crawl back to your horrible Merseyside home." He has since deleted the tweet.

With the interview having been featured on numerous media sites over the week, O'Connell's employers have responded by sacking the lawyer. In a video released by Goldberg Segalla, managing partner Rick Cohen confirmed that they would no longer be employing O'Connell.

Oh dear Clive. Still, never mind. Mourinho will probably need a lawyer to negotiate his severance package sometime in the next week or so.
