Indian Super League: Steve Coppell leaves Kerala Blasters - Best Twitter reactions logo 13-07-2017

On Wednesday, Indian Super League (ISL) outfit Kerala Blasters confirmed that Steve Coppell, who led the team to the 2016 ISL final, won't return to Kerala to helm the Men in Yellow.

The Englishman, during his 2016 stint, had become a highly popular figure in the state and the fans were understandably disappointed to learn of the development. Moerover, he is about to take charge of the new TATA Steel-owned franchise instead.

Interestingly, several players who played under him last season at Kerala were also disappointed by the news and posted 'interesting' tributes on social media.

It only went on to show the respect afforded to the 61-year-old by the pundits, fans and players alike. Let's take a look at some of them:

Goodbyes are the hardest, especially when the memories have been this good. Thank you and Good luck Steve.#KBFC #YellowMeinKhelo #ThankYou
