Chelsea Legend John Terry Joins Twitter And Brilliantly Trolls Manchester United Fans

John Terry joined Twitter over the weekend and has already made a big impact on the social media platform following some hilarious tweets directed at Manchester United fans.

Terry is one of England's most successful players of the last 20 years, after winning 17 major honours across a glittering spell with Chelsea that included: five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, two Community Shields, one Champions League and one Europa League title each.The former Blues and England captain was welcomed to the platform by former England cricketer and big Chelsea fan, Kevin Pietersen.

He said: "A warm welcome to a captain who would have laughed his head off at how poor Man Utd are, having watched the former champions well beaten by Man City at home," in quotes published by talkSPORT.

Terry replied: "Thanks mate. Two teams who are worlds apart. Man City are a joy to watch in possession, and a great example to teams nowhere near as good as them out of possession.

"[Manager Pep Guardiola] drives and demands that from every single player, every ship needs one captain and he is the best."

Terry clearly enjoyed the banter which flowed his way and certainly gave as good as he got, after being trolled by Man United fans who referenced the skipper's agonising defeat in the 2008 Champions League Final.

The former Aston Villa assistant manager was pictured crying in Moscow following the defeat in a tweet shared by a United fan, to which he replied: "That's the Man Utd fans after today and realising your (sic) 5 years away from catching Chelsea."

Meanwhile, there was an even cheekier dig directed at Terry made by a Newcastle United fan in response to Pietersen's welcome tweet, which said: "Best make sure wife doesn't follow him."

The former Blues' skipper brilliantly, but rather harshly shut down the fan and replied: "Your safe David, just seen yours on your account." This also included a crying laughing and a pig emoji.

Aside from the grammatically incorrect use of the word "your" instead of "you're", you have to keep top marks to Terry for his banter.

It's certainly an account to keep a track of as the football season rumbles on!
