Aston Villa announce John Terry
The announcement of Aston Villa signing John Terry was preceded by owner and chairman of the club Trolling local rivals Birmingham.
Nevertheless, Aston Villa have seriously pulled out all the stops for their official announcement of Terry.
The WhatsApp announcement
On Friday, Roma’s announcement of Lorenzo Pellegrini was hailed after they used FIFA 17 to tell their fans of a new signing.
Aston Villa used a Whats App chat to announce Terry and whilst there has been some negative reaction, you have to applaud their creativity.
The highlight is undoubtedly Gabby Agbonlahor claiming that John Terry has “got to be the best defender we’ve ever had”.
Laursen, Mellberg & McGrath leave the group…
Then we see Martin Laursen, Olof Mellberg and Paul McGrath all leave the group.
See the video below & reaction to the Whats App video.
It was also announced on Monday that John Terry will be wearing number 26 at Aston Villa.

Wondering if some transfer deals being held up by inability of club social-media departments to think up cringeworthy ways to announce them

Like the Villa WhatsApp convo. Conveys the message the fans want to hear (We’re trying to get back up, Terry will help), which is key. #AVFC

The only thing John Terry uses WhatsApp for is arranging EDL rallies.
