Chelsea legend John Terry has trolled Manchester United fans on Twitter following their team’s 2-0 defeat to rivals Manchester City.
The former England defender signed up to the social media platform on Saturday and wasted little time in having a dig at one of his former rivals.
United’s poor run of form continued as they were humbled by Premier League champions City, who outclassed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at Old Trafford.
Thatâs the Man Utd fans after today and realising your 5 years away from catching Chelsea ð
— John Terry (@John2606Terry) November 6, 2021 The Red Devils go into the international break with four losses from their last six top-flight matches, leaving them trailing table-toppers Chelsea by nine points.
But Terry was in no mind to take it easy on United fans as he replied to a supporter who posted a picture of the distraught ex-Blues centre-back following his infamous Champions League final penalty miss.
‘That’s the Man Utd fans after today and realising your (sic) 5 years away from catching Chelsea,’ he quipped.
In response to former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen welcoming him to Twitter and commenting on the gap between United and City, Terry said: ‘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.
‘Pep drives and demands that from every single player, every ship needs one captain and he is the best.’
The pressure is again piling on Solskjaer following Saturday’s defeat, and former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy thinks the United boss should be sacked.
‘If they want to compete with the big boys now – Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea – they need to change the manager,’ Murphy told BBC’s Match of the Day.
