Off the mark: footballer’s first tweets

Footballers and Twitter, it is well known by now, do not get along together all that well. Some of the Beautiful Game’s most accomplished social media maestros experienced particularly poor starts – here are some of our favourite debuts.

Wayne Rooney

Wazza gets it oh so hilariously wrong first time out.

Wojciech Szczesny

Arsenal’s Polish keeper identifies possibly the finest reasons to start a social media profile: bitterness and anger

Marouane Fellaini

I suppose nobody can deny that, Marouane…

Cesar Azpilicueta

A frankly terrifying start to the left back’s Twitter career.

Ashley Cole

It seems Ashley may well have been experiencing some sort of slight existential crisis at the moment he composed his first post.

Mario Balotelli

It’s one of the most fail-safe rules of football: you can always rely on Mario to do some something completely and utterly bizarre.

Zlatan Ibrahimović

Something typically confrontational to start things off from Zlatan.

Mikel Arteta

Arsenal’s Spanish midfielder was perhaps guilty of being slightly over familiar with his first tweet.

Louis Saha

We can’t either, Louis.

Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool’s on form striker opened his account with a bizarrely cryptic promise-cum-threat to his followers.

David Nugent

Probably a good idea to call the police, David.
