It was obvious hughton was gonna get bullet at end of season whether Norwich stayed up or not but bizarre to do it now!!!

Understand why supporters & board weren't happy. Can't for the life of me work out why now is the right time to sack Hughton... #NorwichCity

Darren Huckerby praised the former boss for his dedication to the job:

Chris and his staff were always interested and cared how the younger lads in the Academy were doing, top bloke and I wish him well #Ncfc

TV presenter Dan Walker described the decision as "bonkers"

I assume Norwich sent Chris #Hughton a 'you're sacked' letter in the post in January and it got lost in the post #bonkers

One fan, actor Bill Milner was surprised by the decision:

Why would you sack a manager so late on?! And with the hardest run in of the relegation rat race teams. Madness #Norwich #Hughton

Another fan was very surprised at the timing:

Why sack a manager when you're fighting to stay in the Premier League so close to the end of the season?! #Hughton
