Footballers' Silliest Twitter Moments

Social Media plays a big part in today’s game, and footballers from around the world use it to interact with their supporters - but sometimes they get it wrong. Today, the Fan Park Crew has picked a few moments where footballers acted a little silly on Twitter.

Diego Maradona tweeted Thierry Henry after he scored off a handball, sedining France to the 2010 World Cup:

“I know how it feels! See you in South Africa!"

Rio Ferdinand decided to tweet this after being benched, for the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones at Manchester United.

"Wow, how much would Ronaldo, Messi or.........ME be worth 2day in this crazy market?!!! 100m+ all day!!"

Emmanuel Frimpong was dubbed the next Arsenal star, but it just didn’t work out for him. Perhaps he should have thought about the possibility of not making it big before he tweeted this below.

“I will never leave Arsenal even if I get released I will beg on both knees to stay they gna have to escort me. #DEEEEEENCH,"

Mesut Ozil decided to have a dig at Tottenham this weekend, but its backfired heavily as they lost 2-1 to their rivals.

"Planned Venue: White Hart Lane

"Planned Action: Robbing Three Points! J #NorthLondonDerby #YaGunnersYa"

Joey Barton once tried to argue the fact that he deserved an England call up, this was back in 2012.

“Techinally I said I was most inform English midfield player which I think was correct, who played better than me individually last season? FACT”

Mario Balotelli knows how to push the right buttons, and during the World Cup he came up with this gem. England needed Italy to beat Costa Rica to have any chance of qualifying.

“If we beat Costa Rica I want a kiss, obviously on the cheek, from the Queen.”

Can you name a few crazy twitter moment?
