Former Chelsea and England footballer, John Terry, may no longer be kicking a ball around but he’s certainly tackling a few comments from trolls on his brand-new Twitter account, which he started using on Saturday.
The ex-England player confirmed that it was his official profile on Sunday, posting a video of himself ahead of a morning run.
“Yes, this is my official account. I’m going to be getting my blue tick at some point this week,” he tweeted.
As well as confirming his identity, Terry has been busy retweeting welcome messages and videos from his time at Chelsea shared by his fans. He’s expressed an interest in getting involved in the NFT community, too.
He’s also been responding to those who tried their luck at roasting the former professional footballer, and he didn’t hold back.
One user, who responded to a welcome tweet from former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen to say “best make sure his wife doesn’t follow him”.
A warm welcome to a captain who would have laughed his head off at how poor Man Utd are!
