John Terry poses in a peaked cap and jokes that he is ‘auditioning for Peaky Blinders’
After swapping Chelsea for Aston Villa, former England captain John Terry has been adapting to life in the midlands.
This seems to have included an appreciation of Peaky Blinders, the BBC gangster drama set in Birmingham in the early 20th century.
Terry posted a picture to Instagram of him wearing a peaked cap, a trademark of many characters in the show.
The centre back posted a joking comment alongside the image, saying he was off to ‘audition for the Peaky Blinders’ – unless he has decided on a sudden, dramatic career change.
While his credentials as an on-screen gangster may be unproven, Terry has become central to Villa’s squad this season.
He has played every minute of their 11 Championship fixtures as captain, with Villa currently 7th in the table with 19 points.
