John Terry destroys fan who makes ‘wife’ joke after Chelsea legend joins Twitter

Chelsea legend John Terry finally joined Twitter on Saturday night – and it didn't take him long to brutally shut down one unfortunate fan.

Terry, one of the most successful Premier League captains of all time after winning five titles at Stamford Bridge, announced on Instagram that he had signed up to Twitter over the weekend.

The former England defender largely received a warm welcome to the social-media platform, with Blues supporters showering him in adulation.

England cricketing icon Kevin Pietersen, good friends with JT, also tweeted: “A warm welcome to a captain who would have laughed his head off at how poor Man Utd are! Welcome to twitter @john2606terry!"

However, one user then took it upon themselves to fire a cheeky dig at Terry.

The fan, named David, replied to Pietersen: "Better make sure [the] wife doesn't follow him".

Terry then hit back with a savage response which has since gone viral online, saying: "Your safe David, just seen yours on your account" followed by laughing and pig emojis.

David held his hands up and admitted the 40-year-old well and truly destroyed him with the comeback, but Terry had the final say and wrote: "She can’t be that bad she doesn’t even make it on your Twitter account".

The initial tweet was a reference to Terry's infamous bust-up with Wayne Bridge back in 2010, when he was accused of having an affair with his ex-teammate's former girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel.

He was stripped of the England captaincy as a result of the scandal, despite Perroncel vehemently denying it.

Terry and Bridge then crossed paths when Chelsea faced Manchester City at Stamford Bridge a few weeks later, which conjured up one of the most iconic moments in Premier League history.

As the two teams carried out the traditional pre-match handshakes, Bridge snubbed his old pal in front of the 40,000 fans in attendance and millions watching around the world.

Terry is clearly not afraid to meet his Twitter critics head on, issuing a number of hilarious ripostes since joining the platform.

One Manchester United supporter posted a photo of the ex-Chelsea centre-back crying after their defeat in the 2008 Champions League final, to which he replied: "That’s the Man Utd fans after [losing against Manchester City] today and realising your 5 years away from catching Chelsea".
