Off the Pitch: Aston Villa Use Fake WhatsApp Conversation to Announce Terry
Former Chelsea captain John Terry has joined Aston Villa on a one-year deal, with the Championship club announcing the signing via a bizarre video on Twitter.
The clip shows a fake WhatsApp group, run by Chairman Dr Tony Xia, ablaze with messages.
Starting off sending cryptic clues to the announcement, Xia says: “Captain, leader, VILLAIN.”
“It’s done?” replies manager Steve Bruce.
Before long, John Terry is added into the group, writing: “Great to be here boys! Let’s get this club back up to the Premier League.”
