Former England football captain John Terry has already felt the sharp end of Twitter, despite only recently joining the social media platform, after sharing a picture of himself in winter clothes on a private jet – returning from a £145,000 ski holiday.
The 41-year-old Chelsea star posted a photo of himself relaxing aboard the private jet on the short ride back from Switzerland after enjoying a winter family holiday in a very luxurious ski chalet owned by Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Peter Jones.
However, the picture didn’t quite turn out the way Terry, who returns to Chelsea to coach at the club’s academy, had hoped with legions of people making fun of his winter wardrobe.
According to the chalet’s website, the property, which sleeps 16, comes with a ‘butler, chef, waitress and maid’ and costs £145,000 a week during the height of the winter ski season.
Terry told his 6.3 million followers on Instagram that it was “the BEST vacation we’ve ever had and memories to last a lifetime,” while sharing a series of snaps from the winter break that he shared with his wife Toni and his friends. two children Georgie and Summer.
However, his winter wardrobe got short shrift to those who saw the photo, with many suggesting that English football greats of yesteryear – including Stuart Pearce, Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris and Terry Butcher – would never have worn such a ‘horrible tailor’.
Terry donned a pair of immaculate £150 Sorel Caribou boots for the private flight home, and Terry tucked his tight-fitting trousers into the waterproof boots – and football fans were quick to pass judgment.
@PaulMacca76 cried: ‘You stood in front of a full-length mirror this morning and said ‘yes, this outfit works’?!?’
Villa supporter @Billy_Chisholm suggested the boots hadn’t seen much snow and said: ‘Those boots look way too clean John or are they your in-flight clothes?’
Others were shocked that the retired footballer had used a private jet to make the short flight to Geneva airport.
