Well, in truth, the whole world knew beforehand that he was going.
Before Real Madrid officially announced that they had sacked manager Rafael Benitez after just 25 games in charge, our media pals in Spain had already given the universe a headstart.
After it became official a little over an hour ago, various reactions have flooded social media. Some think Florentino Perez and his beer-pals at the Bernabeu are spot on with this decision, others are of the opinion that the Madrid president is increasingly becoming more clueless than a monkey handed a dildo.
As usual, we have waited so that we can collect the funniest reactions to the not-so-news news.
