FORMER Crystal Palace and Cardiff City ace Jordon Mutch has found a new club - South Korean side Gyeongnam FC.

But social media was sent crazy by his unveiling, where he is holding up a clenched fist along with two club officials and the team's mascot.

 Former Cardiff and Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch has joined South Korean outfit Gyeongnam FC

Gyeongnam's nickname is apparently 'The Fisters' which goes some way to explaining the cringe-worthy, Anthony Joshua-esque unveiling.

Equally as bizarre is Mutch's choice of outfit. He is wearing ripped jeans, scruffy trainers and has the Gyeongnam shirt with the number 80 over the top of his grey jumper.

The combination makes him look like a supporter heading down to the ground to cheer on his team in autumn - too warm for a jacket but too chilly to go without the jumper underneath.

And users on Twitter did not hold back in their mocking.

Freelance journalist Will Unwin tweeted a picture and joked: "Ex-Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch has joined South Korean side Gyeongnam FC - does look like he’s doing a boxing press conference ahead of his bout with the mascot, mind."

TalkSPORT's Gary Taphouse added: "Former Cardiff, QPR and Crystal Palace Jordon Mutch looking thrilled to have joined Gyeongnam FC in South Korea."

Mark O'Brien tweeted: "What's Korean for ... keep the receipt?"

While @YourBuddyHarry screengrabbed his dad's response to the news which was: "He looks like an old overweight tramp."

Other hilarious comments included "warm arms, cold knees" and "did he get those shoes from lost property?"

The midfielder, 27, left Selhurst Park by mutual consent in January following loan spells at Reading and Vancouver Whitecaps.

His Palace contract was set to expire at the end of the season after signing a four-and-a-half-year deal to join from Queens Park Rangers in 2015.

And after Vancouver passed up the chance to make his spell in Canada permanent, Mutch headed to the Far East to try and resurrect his career.

He played for the academies at Derby and then Birmingham and represented England Under-17s, U19s, U20s and U21s.

Gyeongnam finished second in the K League last year, 21 points behind champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, earning automatic qualification into the Asian Champions League group stages.

Odds slashed on Maurizio Sarri's potential sacking at Chelsea

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has emerged as the new favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked this season.

Sarri only arrived at Stamford Bridge in July, bu the 60-year-old has successfully guided the club to the EFL Cup final and through to the latter stages of the FA Cup and Europa League.

However, Chelsea find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League standings having suffered a humiliating 6-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

That has led to a number of leading bookmakers altering the odds regarding Sarri's future, with the Italian now priced as low as Evens to be the next man to be removed from the main position in the dugout.

Sarri has acknowledged that he is 'worried' about his future at the West Londoners with Chelsea now having lost their last three away games in the Premier League having conceded 12 goals.

Peter Schmeichel: 'Manchester United shouldn't have sacked David Moyes'

Peter Schmeichel has claimed that David Moyes should have been provided with more time as Manchester United manager.

United have - so far - failed to secure a long-term replacement since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, with Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho all having tried and failed to win the Premier League title.

Moyes lasted less than a season after being brought in to take over from Ferguson, but club legend Schmeichel feels that the Scot was not given the chance to be successful at Old Trafford.

The Dane told beIN Sports: "If we should have any regrets at Manchester United, it's that we only gave David Moyes seven months. I think we should have given him more time, accepted that results weren't going to be what we hoped and playing would have been a little different.

"I believe he would have grown into the role. He has the personality and the understanding. He had so many things to learn and no one to learn it from. He was left to run the football department on his own. From the club's perspective we should never have dismissed him."

United are currently impressing under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has recorded 10 wins and a draw from his 11 matches in all competitions.
