The former Derby midfielder is confused by the decision, it seems...

Robbie Savage appeared confused on Twitter as Derby County sacked Paul Clement on Monday evening.

The decision came suddenly and Clement has been dismissed with immediate effect.

Some feel the coach has lucked out - he is now free to rejoin Carlo Ancelotti next season, who is taking over at Bayern Munich.

However, the majority of onlookers seem to believe Derby acted harshly and far too quickly in getting rid of the former Chelsea and Real Madrid assistant.

Savage, who used to play for Derby, is one of those onlookers...

The Rams may well have been acting in advance, seeing as they did nothing about their infamous collapse last season until it was too late.

Derby were in a strong position but have slid down the table and it was obviously felt Clement is not the right man to take the Midlands club forward.

Those arguing against the decision, though, will naturally point to the fact Derby are still only five points off the top of the Championship table.
