Aston Villa assistant head coach John Terry delivered a brutal response to Tottenham fans after they chanted about Ledley King being a better player than him.
King spent his entire career at Spurs, making more then 250 appearances, and was one of the most highly-rated young defenders in the country.
But his playing days were continually interrupted by injury, though he did help Spurs to lift the 2008 Carling Cup.
By contrast, Terry became one of the Premier League’s best ever defenders at Chelsea, captaining the Blues to five league titles and five FA Cups during his time at Stamford Bridge.
The former England captain has since moved into coaching since retiring, assisting Dean Smith at Aston Villa since 2018.
Their side travelled to Tottenham on Wednesday after an impressive second season back in the top-flight for the Villains.
Despite Terry’s illustrious career, Spurs fans have frequently made clear that they believe their own academy product King was the better player of the two.
Villa coach Terry could not resist making his feelings clear about those opinions, choosing to deliver a brutal reply to the chanting fans.
With the chant in full flow, Terry could be seen turning around and lifting an imaginary trophy in response, highlighting his well-stocked trophy cabinet compared to King’s.
Terry was given more reason to be cheerful and shut those chants down during the match, as Villa claimed a deserved win.

Though Steven Bergwijn's thumping effort opened the scoring after just eight minutes, Villa went on to control proceedings.
The visitors claimed a deserved equaliser 12 minutes after Bergwijn’s goal when Sergio Reguilon sliced the ball into the top corner of his own goal.
And they completed the turnaround six minutes before the break when Ollie Watkins intercepted Reguilon's weak clearance and smashed the ball beyond Hugo Lloris to seal three points.
